This person supports the Product Pricing & Strategy Manager to complete central system set up, ‘trouble shoots’ amongst the team during times of pricing activity and delivers training where appropriate to new system users. This is with the goal of ensuring our holidays are priced correctly when they launch to hit target margins that maximise profit and revenue
