Role: Manager, Accommodation Development

Level 3

As Covid19 continues to have a catastrophic effect on the tourism and hospitality industry, Fáilte Ireland is helping the industry navigate and survive this crisis through targeted business supports, key mentoring and tailored recovery plans.

As part of this work Fáilte Ireland is seeking to recruit a highly motivated and energetic Manager to join the Accommodation Development Division, part of the Industry Development Directorate.

This is a fantastic opportunity to work with the National Tourism Development Authority to help shape and influence the future of tourism in Ireland. The successful applicant will oversee and actively manage Fáilte Ireland’s long term Accommodation Development plans.

The successful candidate will support the accommodation sector to develop sustainable operational models to optimise financial performance and to meet the everchanging needs of the visitor. This includes developing a long-term Accommodation Development Strategy for Ireland including clear development priorities and KPI’s.

You will have knowledge and experience of the national accommodation supply and more generally hospitality and tourism in Ireland. You will be working cross functionally with other teams and stakeholders and will also be able to demonstrate excellent relationship management skills.

The role will report to the Head of Accommodation Development and will be based in Fáilte Ireland, Dublin, Cork or Limerick. There will be an expectation for the post holder to spend regular time in the Dublin Office at Fáilte Ireland, 88-95 Amiens Street, Dublin 1.

However, in line with current Government guidance, it is likely that the successful candidate will commence in this role while working from home.
