Destination Manager Australia
We are on a mission to give the whole world access to incredible experiences. What do people value the most from their trip to a new destination? It’s likely not the flight they took, nor the hotel in which they stayed. People value the experiences- visit the Sydney Opera House in the sunset, a cruise in Whitsundays or experience the Great Barrier Reef. GetYourGuide is one of the world’s leading travel marketplaces for tours and activities with a strong position in Australia. As restrictions begin to ease, We are now searching for a Destination Manager to help grow and reopen Australia. Based out of our Sydney office, your mission is to drive the performance of major cities throughout the region.
As a Destination Manager, you’ll be reporting to the Regional Manager of Australia and New Zealand, act as an entrepreneur, and be responsible for the recovery and acquisition of key attractions, activities, and new partners and suppliers.
As an evangelist of the GetYourGuide brand, you’re responsible for building strong business relationships and creating strategic supply advantages for us.
