ABOUT VERIU GROUP

Our name means True & Genuine, and from humble beginnings our brand was founded out of a genuine passion for connecting travellers to the authenticity of a location by providing comfortable and bespoke accommodation. Today, we are a multi-brand accommodation group operating 17 hotels (and growing!) across Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria.

Although each property we operate is unique and true to the location it is situated, we possess the same guest service philosophy that drives what we do each and every day.

We have an ambitious pipeline of new hotels that will see us continue to expand across the country, with the goal of operating 80+ hotels by 2030! As we embark on this journey, we are focused on building long-lasting relationships with a great sense of integrity, surrounding ourselves with talented individuals driven by self-growth, all while operating with an ownership mindset.

ABOUT THE ROLE & TEAM

Our teams at both Head Office and our properties are passionate business partners, dedicated to providing incredible guest experiences and exceptional results through their respective roles.

As we run towards a post-covid future, we are ramping up our team in excitement for the return of travel. As a result, an excellent opportunity exists for a senior Business Development Manager to join our team at Veriu Central on a full-time basis.

Veriu Central is an iconic hotel in the cultural heart of Sydney. With ownership of the local sales function for Veriu Central, your responsibilities will be to:

  • Work closely with the Associate Director of Local Sales (Melbourne-based) and Hotel Manager
  • Drive corporate, group and inbound sales
  • Generate new business
  • Nurture existing accounts to build relationships and drive business
  • Navigate and secure opportunities associated with major projects and institutions
  • Cold-call, knock on doors, generate new leads & develop a strong corporate pipeline
  • Increase brand awareness by improving current relationships & building strong relationships with new clients
  • Conduct site inspections, visit clients, attend industry events & work with a team-orientated approach
  • Actively contribute to the strategic direction of the Group
  • Assist in the training and upskilling of the hotel teams with respect to lead generation and qualifying

ABOUT YOU

We work in a fast-paced environment where no day is the same, so we’re looking for people who are adaptable, enjoy variety and are self-motivated “hunters” when it comes to identifying and securing opportunities.

You will be ready to hit the ground running, bring with you strong experience in business development and the proven ability to drive, influence and exceed targets. Experience in a hotel sales function and strong knowledge of the target area & market (around our hotel) is desirable, but don’t let that be a barrier to you applying.

We would love if you were equally as passionate about your career growth as we are about seeing our portfolio of hotels grow, and alignment to our company values of Relationship Focused, Integrity, Ownership Mindset and Personal Growth is a must!

YOUR JOURNEY WITH VERIU GROUP

As a Hotel Group in its infancy stages embarking on an ambitious growth trajectory, we are looking for passionate and motivated like-minded individuals to join our team. We keep our structure simple because we believe strongly in developing our people to be well-rounded professionals. This allows us to accelerate our people’s careers into management roles quickly and provide cross-exposure between Corporate Office and operations.

Our career map promotes tailored career paths for each member of our team – the pathways are endless! No matter the role you hold, you are a business partner with the ability to truly make an impact.

We have a comprehensive onboarding program and a Fast-Track Management Program in its pilot stage. Opportunities for career growth are plentiful and we also offer other benefits such as discounts on accommodation and an unrivaled culture.
