MRK’s Revenue Management recruitment division continues to be one of the fastest growing areas of MRK’s business. Focusing on the recruitment of Pricing, Revenue Management and related positions across the UK & Ireland as well internationally stretching from America, across Europe to the Middle and Far East.
As the first recruitment agency in the UK to specialise fully in Revenue Management recruitment, seeing it as a professional highly skilled “white collar” job – rather than just a position within the hospitality sector – we have an unparalleled understanding of the market.
Recruiting from entry level Revenue Analyst positions through to Directors of Revenue Management and Commercial Directors with every variant of Revenue Manager and Area/ “Head of” job in between, we have relationships across the industries – Travel, Airline, Holiday, Hotel, Car Leasing, Parking, Cruises, Legal and Insurance.
Our consultants spend their time networking within this specialist field across these industries, meeting relevant jobseekers and employers and attending events as speakers, guests or hosts. All of this ensures they develop and maintain an expert understanding of all things happening in this market in order to offer jobseekers career and salary advice and employers input on skill set availability and relevant remuneration requirements.
Revenue Management is a highly “candidate driven” world where technology has forced through the speed of change at an incredible rate. Improved, and cheaper, systems in the industry have resulted in even the smallest hotels employing someone focused on their revenue management. Whereas this used to done by the reservations person, or sometimes even by reception or the GM, as part of their role, hotels now understand a specialist member of staff can easily pay back their salary (and more) by improving the percentage yield of the hotel.
“What impressed me most about MRK were both their in-depth understanding of Revenue Management role types and skills required, and the speed in which they got on with the job. MRK never failed to update us as the search went on and their enthusiasm for finding us the right candidate never faltered” – Head of Commercial, Holiday Home Company
Our job is to find the talented Revenue Management professionals in the market and work in their best interests to find the most relevant job for them.
We don’t register every person that applies to our jobs, we don’t register every person that is referred to us because we can’t help people that don’t have the relevant skills for the industry. We are not about numbers of jobseekers on our books.
Likewise, we don’t register every job that employers ask us to help with – if it’s not in our specialism we will refer it to a partner company who know that market well.
We are great at revenue management recruitment, our consultants understand the market segment they work in and we care about being the best we can be – the “BEST” is what makes up our core values – Bravery, Efficiency, Selflessness and Trust.
Our aim is to be able to add value to the people we work with – both job seekers and employers alike. If we don’t, there is no point us being here. If we don’t, please tell us.
We should be giving jobseekers information on the market relevant to their skills, we should be honest with you about what jobs and salaries are going to be available to you, we should be open with you about the positives and negatives and we should be advising you on what you need to do to get a great new job. Above all, we should be making a difference to your life through your career.
We should be challenging employers to ensure they aren’t being unrealistic with what they are trying to find, we should be advising them on the availability of relevant people in the market, we should be working quickly to give clients the best choice of talent in the area and we should be making the recruitment process as painless as possible.
So, with every hotel wanting and needing a Revenue Manager, there is a shortage of experienced people in the market as new jobs are created all the time.
