We are looking for a Director of Entertainment Sales to join our Sales and Marketing team at Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, London.
Share the stories of London’s most iconic address: we’re looking for a Director of Entertainment Sales to spread the Mandarin Oriental message.
Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park is London’s most iconic address. The spirit of the city infuses every floor. The park’s green vastness rolls beyond bedroom windows. Renowned guests frequent the hotels’ bars and restaurants. It’s another world. A world of oriental luxury and the most attentive service. A world that’s all about our guests. It’s also a world that’s been reinvented and reimagined to move with the times. With a heart of London’s heritage and an eye to the future, we use our own sense of history to set new standards – through kind and generous service.
We need an experienced and established Director of Entertainment Sales to weave Mandarin Oriental magic through our sales engagements.
When you sell Mandarin Oriental, you’re not selling beds for the night; you’re selling an experience – one that begins in the lobby and spreads to our spa, to our bars and restaurants, and ultimately to our bedrooms. As Director of Entertainment Sales, you’ll be able to add a touch of glamour to your professional portfolio. After all, it’s a chance to work with one of the brands that define the city. To sell our hotel is to sell the spirit of London itself, so we need people who understand our philosophy and can translate this to our guests.
