We are looking for a dynamic, self-motivated and innovative individual to head a corporate business. The position is based in Kampala, Uganda and there is a requirement to commit to a three to four year contract with the option to extend.
The company was established in 2005 and is now one of the leading and most successful corporate travel agencies in the country. The company’s successes have been built on its attention to detail and its hands-on approach right from the managing director down.
Recognizing that clients now have the easy (and sometime cheaper) option of booking online, we need to raise our game so that we enhance our value-add and service levels to the extent that clients won’t even think about online options.
We are looking for a Corporate Manager who will basically take the business by the scruff of the neck, shake it up and stamp their mark on it. Take control of a great team of travel professionals, guide and coach them so that they consistently deliver superior levels of service.
The Corporate Manager’s KPI will include:
- Assist the Managing Director in developing a business plan
- Execute and implement a business plan that achieves profitable growth in line with the company’s overall objectives
- Setting, coaching, developing and performance monitoring of sales team to maximize their individual potential.
- Implement new systems to ensure that the company takes full advantage of the latest travel technology
- Build strong and lasting commercial relationships with existing customers, understand their business needs and implement solutions to ensure that they remain loyal.
- Create and develop a dynamic company presentation to be used for enticing new business.
- Spearhead the drive for new profitable business
- Present sales and revenue reports, together with forecasts, to the managing director on a monthly basis and to the board on a quarterly basis
- Develop a marketing plan that ensures we have a strong presence on social media and other channels.
