Job Detail

Who you’d be working with…

WIN Global Travel Network is an international group of travel specialists working together to grow and win business.

Established in 1985, WIN membership totals 6,000 locations in over 70 countries, employing 30,000 staff with a combined turnover of over US$15 billion.

The WIN network of travel agencies and travel management companies combines the best of both worlds: the global reach and shared expertise of a multinational, with the fast-mover advantage and customer care of a local independent agent. Participation is restricted to established travel companies with professional operations and a pro-active philosophy.

At the head office in London a small team coordinates the international network. The business has two main areas of focus:

What you would be doing…

You will be a key member of the WIN team in managing the processes for creating, planning and implementing a wide range of regular and ad hoc marketing activities to meet the needs of hotel and supplier partners, communicating messages about our products and programmes to business travel agent members and promoting attendance at a range of events in the UK and overseas.

This is an amazing opportunity to join a fantastic company at a very exciting time. You, the Marketing Executive, would report to the CEO and work alongside 10 other friendly professionals. The whole team works really closely together (in fact, they work closely with the whole Advantage group, our members and business partners). This will give you the great opportunity to both bounce ideas off each other and learn from each other.
