Ambassador Cruise Line is looking to hire a Deputy Head of Trade as well as new Business Development Managers and Businesss Development Executives.

Reporting to Head of Distribution Nicola Harper, the new Deputy Head of Trade will ‘play a key role in leveraging existing commercial relationships to maximise sales opportunities’, said Ambassador.

They will manage trade members and key partnerships, with an emphasis on revenue generation and relationship building. 

In addition to the Deputy Head of Trade position, Ambassador is also looking to take on an additional three to four BDMs or BDEs.

It said the exact structure of its distribution team will be agreed at the end of the recruitment process to play to the strengths of those that apply.

The recruitment drive follows Ambassador’s most successful season launch ever, with revenue more than doubling year-on-year in the first month of trading since the 25/26 programme went on sale on 21 March.

The cruise line recently launched a year-long ship visit programme for its trade partners and three agent fam trips from July to September 2024.

Nicola said: “As the Ambassador brand goes from strength to strength, recent developments illustrate just how highly we value our agent partners who provide the backbone to our success. 

“We have enjoyed a record breaking launch and this is due to the strength of our partnerships with the trade.

“With these new roles, our agent partners can rest assured that Ambassador will be with them every step of the way as we look to work even more closely with the trade to increase brand awareness, provide the service they deserve and ultimately drive sales of our incredible premium value cruise experiences.”
