Acquisitions Manager - Hotel Operator

London

£60,000 - £70,000 plus 50% bonus

This is to work Client Side for a growing Hotel Operator with a presence across the UK & Europe.

They seek an Acquisitions Manager to join their expanding team, with the target of acquiring a minimum of 20 new hotel sites within the next 3 years.

The successful candidate will identify, develop and implement growth opportunities across London, and other prominent UK cities.

They are backed by a prestigious US Capital Management firm who have over $300 billion invested globally. An aggressive & realistic growth strategy has been put in place for the hotelier - providing a fantastic opportunity for this Acquisitions Manager to come in and do multiple deals quickly.

The role is fully autonomous, with only 2 or 3 days needed to be spent in their Central London office.

You will be targeting sites of 50,000 sq ft+, and looking to do both on and off market deals.

Further requirements include:

  • Proven track record of negotiating acquisitions and the ability to source deals for development.
  • Must have the ability to create opportunities directly rather than relying on sites with planning permission already in place and on the open market. Value add is critical to this position, seeing the upside in an opportunity and proving where this has been done in previous work is essential to being considered for this role.
  • Must have a strong existing network throughout the industry/black book to source opportunities as well as off market deals, not just refined to London but also across the UK.

This is a unique and exciting opportunity to join a hotelier at the beginning of its large growth journey. With the team forecasted to grow sufficiently in the next 2 years; career development and progression is expected.
