A Guest Relations Manager takes care of guest requests and complaints and works very closely with the various departments in hotels. An essential part of their working day involves flawless preparation for guest arrivals and follow-ups after. They keep an eye on all aspects of the reception, switchboard, concierge, and reservation areas. Guest Relations Managers might also take on management responsibilities and arrangements that are relevant to the safety of the hotel, guests, and employees, such as bans or evacuation plans. To do so, they must be familiar with all security measures in the hotel and know what actions to take in emergency situations. 

Project Manager (m/w/d)

Project Managers are often sought in large companies or the trade fair industry. They are responsible for the organisation and handling of individual event projects. In addition to planning trade fair appearances and events for staff or customers, they will manage practical implementation, budget planning, and evaluation. The exchange and coordination of external and internal service providers is also often a task for a Project Manager. 

Marketing Manager (m/w/d)

Marketing Managers are responsible for the conception of marketing, product design, pricing, communication, promotion, promotion and sales. They deal with various market research methods, advertising, and design in the national and international market environment. The general responsibilities of a Marketing Manager include marketing planning, marketing control, coordination of in-house functional and business areas regarding the requirements of marketing design, development of efficient marketing organisation, and management of marketing personnel.
