The London EDITION represents authentic comfort, extraordinary style and an exceptional level of service in a uniquely individual environment. Located in the Fitzrovia neighborhood of central London, the property brings together the integrity and character of a historic building with a simple, sophisticated design sensibility to create a seamless blend of charisma and ease. With 173 guest rooms, a vibrant restaurant, multiple bars, event spaces, and meeting rooms, the hotel offers a dynamic social hub where guests and visitors can work, relax, and experience all the benefits of a home away from home.


EDITION is the industry’s first truly global lifestyle hotel brand that successfully combines a personal, intimate and unique hospitality experience on a global scale. Developed in collaboration with Ian Schrager and Marriott Intl., EDITION combines outstanding innovation and design with the highest levels of service execution. It achieves this goal by bringing great personal, friendly, modern service as well as outstanding, one-of-a-kind food, beverage and entertainment offerings... “all under one roof”.

EDITION responds to new emerging cultural and social imperatives. It reflects these changing lifestyles and caters to a vast underserved market of guests expecting and in turn demanding a unique experience, not merely a place to sleep. Each hotel is rare in its individuality, authenticity, originality and unique ethos that reflects the best of the cultural and social milieu of its location and of the time.

EDITION is about an attitude and the way it makes you feel rather than the way it looks. The attitude comes alive to guests via their senses. The brand has unique language, modern visual appeal, music and scent.

We are looking for an experienced, passionate and goal driven Travel Industry Sales Manager to join our Sales team.

You will work closely with our Director of Sales & Marketing and be responsible for executing the property’s Travel Industry Sales strategy and achieving the associated revenue goals. As Travel Industry Sales Manager you will lead all day-to-day activities related to Transient Leisure Sales with a strong focus on building long-term, value-based customer relationships that enable the hotel to achieve its sales objectives.

This role is an integral part of the hotel’s positioning in the luxury sector and will be essential in proactively targeting FIT Wholesale, Luxury Concierge Services, STARS Agencies (Europe), Online Travel Agencies and Local Partnerships to increase brand awareness and revenue share.

Previous experience in 5* luxury hotels is desirable and an understanding of the London market and travel industry is key.

This role requires the successful candidate to work hours to suit the business needs and will include evening and weekend hours.

EDITION is an equal opportunity employer committed to hiring a diverse workforce and sustaining an inclusive culture. EDITION does not discriminate on the basis of disability, veteran status or any other basis protected under federal, state or local laws. See description
