IT innovation is key to supporting the commercial decisions that drive our Revenue Management team and this then leads to IT projects that underpin the business.

The other 30% of your time could be working on production issues that you will investigate and propose solutions or changes.
The priorities are demanding and we expect a common sense approach to the working demands. If you're happy with the cup being half empty this is also not for you.

This is a travel business after all, it's fast moving and challenging.
