Business Development Specialist (closed / filled)

Hotel Treats is looking to hire a Business Development Specialist!

Hotel Treats is how the most fabulous hotels in the world sell gift vouchers and experiences online. We create beautifully branded online shops for hotels to sell spa treatments, dining experiences, romantic getaways and everything in between. These are bought by local residents looking for Instagram-worthy experiences as well as guests, pre-arrival. We also operate our own marketplace, aggregating services from each of our clients.

As we expand from Spain, we are looking for an energetic Business Development Specialist to help us introduce Hotel Treats to new markets. Your role will be to take charge of opening the markets in Portugal & Germany, with more to come in due course.

Business Development Specialist responsibilities:

  • Identify hotels which would benefit from our services & decision-makers within them
  • Research how best to contact the leads and arrange meetings or calls with them
  • Present our offering in a consultative manner: understanding their challenges and how we can alleviate them
  • Send out contracts & pass each signed hotel on to the onboarding team.

Business Development Specialist requirements:

  • Bilingual or proficient knowledge of English & German, ideally with good knowledge of Portuguese
  • 2 years of experience in a similar role, successfully managing sales in various markets
  • Experience in sales calls and closing deals over the phone
  • Energy & resiliency: opening a new market is tough! We will offer you all the possible support, but you will need to be resilient and not get easily discouraged when leads say 'no'
  • Consultative approach: the ability to put yourself in the leads' shoes and understand how we can help our clients
  • Basic Google & LinkedIn research skills
  • Ideally, previous experience in Hospitality: working for a luxury hotel, OTA, or a vendor within the hospitality industry


We are looking for collaborators who will be able to work with us on a B2B basis - you will need to invoice us for your services.

Location: Flexible

Hours: This is a full-time role, however, we do have a degree of flexibility regarding the hours you would work to suit your lifestyle.
