Product Manager – Spain & Portugal
A rare and exciting opportunity has arisen at Inntravel for a Product Manager to be responsible for our walking, cycling and SlowMotion journeys holidays in Spain and Portugal. We’re looking to recruit a self-motivated and versatile individual with a passion for authentic places and an instinctive understanding of Inntravel’s style of ‘Slow’ holidays.
Reporting to the Area Development Manager for Southern Europe, and working as part of a wider team of product managers, you will have broad-ranging responsibility for new product development, contracting, supplier relations, product performance and administration, and promoting product both within and outside the business. The role will focus principally on our product in Spain and Portugal, so fluency in Spanish is essential, but there will also be opportunities to manage holidays in other destinations around Europe, and beyond.
The role will suit an experienced product manager, or someone looking to take the next step into product management having worked in a product / commercial role with a tour operator. Either way, you will need a broad range of personal skills, including imagination and originality of thought to create inspiring new holidays, commercial astuteness, strong inter-personal skills, and excellent administration and communication skills.
Inntravel is based at offices in beautiful countryside near Castle Howard in rural North Yorkshire, so this is an ideal opportunity for someone looking to develop their career in a great part of the world.
