The job

We are seeking to hire a Destination Manager for the DACH area, who will be responsible for half of our destinations and will work closely together with the DM for the other half of the destinations. You will both have a shared full-time assistant as well. You will be in charge of finding and sourcing new suppliers (mainly during off-season) as well as operating the bookings (mainly during high-season).

  • Finalize bookings and communicate final booking details to customers
  • Maintain a good relationship with suppliers
  • Communication with the group leader during the trip
  • Communication with account manager colleagues regarding bookings and changes
  • Be on-call for emergency phone during weekends / nights (we can potentially organise shifts, so you are only on-call during some weekends)
  • Organize supplier invoices (review and upload incoming invoices to internal system)

  • Off-season: source new suppliers, improve existing products, update products and prices in system, provide information to marketing and sales
