Head of Commercial at Welcome to Yorkshire
Welcome to Yorkshire are recruiting and building for the future…
Welcome to Yorkshire is responsible for marketing Yorkshire to the world as a place to ‘Visit, Live, Work and Study’ and we are looking for dynamic, knowledgeable people to join our award-winning team.
Yorkshire is the largest county in England, blessed with stunning coastline and countryside, National Parks and areas of outstanding natural beauty alongside vibrant cities, a rich cultural heritage, history, arts, music and Michelin starred restaurants.
We are the home of the world-famous Tour de Yorkshire cycle race but also many other award winning international festivals and thousands of businesses that make up the rich tapestry of the regional tourism economy. Tourism pre the Coronavirus pandemic was worth £9bn and employed over 225,000 people and we are working very hard to both represent the best of the region has to offer and amplify the stories within to a global audience.
After a difficult year for everyone, Tourism set to burst back onto the scene as restrictions begin to lift and the new Welcome to Yorkshire is set to go full throttle again. As such we have some excellent opportunities within our organisation to enable us to build on our proud history but take us forward into a new age.
We are currently looking for a new Head of Commercial
We are an equal opportunities employer and truly believe diverse, inclusive teams are the most successful teams. We particularly encourage applications from individuals who are from a BAME background who are currently under-represented within Welcome to Yorkshire.
