EXPIRY NOTICE: This job has now expired and will not be accepting any more applications.

Founded in 2002, our mission at Avvio has always been straight-forward – to partner with hotels to grow their direct channel business. Having always focused exclusively on the hotel sector, we truly understand how customers like to browse shop and buy. Conducting extensive user audits has always been at the centre of our design philosophy - for our booking platform and supporting services.

Avvio’s advanced Booking Platform is designed to match the ever-evolving requirements of hotels and serviced-apartment operators. It is supported by best-in-class website design and digital marketing services, where the unyielding focus centres around improving booking conversion rates on the hotel’s website and delivering traffic that is inclined to ‘book direct’. Frank’s specialist focus on conversion optimisation is what has ensured Avvio’s technology platform leads the field, helping hotels to truly compete, strengthen their direct sales channel and increase profits in an increasingly complex digital landscape.

From the outset, Avvio has consistently delivered impressive results and is now proud to support a client base of over 350 hotels and serviced apartments across the UK, Ireland and North America.

Job Description

Your task will be to grow, develop and manage your customer account base within the UK market by representing Avvio Ltd professionally and consistently. You’ll achieve this by developing an in-depth understanding of your customer’s business, driving sales and meeting defined sales and revenue targets. Building strong relationships, managing your business portfolio and monitoring account performance across three core lines of business will lead towards your progression within Avvio.

Avvio will support your commercial development and training through weekly meetings at head office, in London and field based support. You will also have regular travel to the global head office in Ireland once a month for a ‘business catch up’ and training. Consistent professional development will give Avvio’s graduates the platform to build strong commercial relationships and continuously provide support and account management to their customers.

The Individual

Academically, we are looking for CCC (or higher) at A-level and a 2:2 degree (or higher) from any discipline completed within the last 3 years. You will have strong communication skills both verbal and written.

12 months experience in sales or marketing is advantageous but not essential.

You will also be:

  • Self-motivated
  • Personable
  • Pursuant
  • Proactive
  • Commercially aware

Salary and Benefits

At Avvio Limited, we know how hard graduates work and what a substantial contribution they make to businesses and because of this, we offer the people who join us a very attractive package.

This includes;

  • Salary: £22,000
  • £5,000 Car allowance
  • Laptop
  • Company Phone
  • Progression to Sales Manager

The successful candidate will undergo an initial four week training programme with the current Sales and Marketing Vice President. This will expose you to client meetings, product demonstrations and the digital team to develop your knowledge and skillset. You’ll be assisted with developing business leads, arranging client meetings and general sales training to gain a good understanding of the business and your client base.

Avvio Limited is committed to the training and development of a graduate into this role. Alongside your internal training and mentoring, you’ll also be enrolled onto the Discovery Graduates “Sales Winners” training course which will help to accelerate your performance over your first 12 months and provide you with a Level 3 qualification from the Institute of Sales and Marketing Management.
