What you will be doing

As Revenue Manager you will analyse and report on all onboard revenue streams using the reporting tools for onboard revenue (RESCO & BOXI). You will produce accurate data and distribute to the on-board management teams to deliver maximum profit across the fleet.

You will also update the partners with operational amendments, such as itinerary changes or legal requirements. The role requires you to work closely with each concessionaire and participate in regular business reviews to ensure performance is consistent and managing any under-performance against our set objectives through action plans and contractual consequences. You will chair weekly performance reviews and input into monthly and quarterly business reviews with all concession partners. You will also manage the Purchase Order and payment process used to pay our third party concessionaire partners.
