The Revenue Management team manages day to day and long-term strategic revenue optimization for WestJet. What is Revenue Management? It isn’t accounting and it exists in many industries. It is why roses cost more on Valentine’s Day than the week after, why hotel rooms in Las Vegas cost more on the weekend than mid-week, and why sometimes there are seat sales for flights many months in advance. Using forecasts of future demand and continual re-optimization of fares, in-depth analysis and market strategy, the Revenue Management team balances guest promise with supply and demand. Revenue Management is a blend of art and science that requires the combination of strategic thinking and business acumen and an acute ability to make high impact decisions.

  • Develop and effectively communicate market/pricing strategies to leadership team and teammates

  • Monitor KPI performance, proactively adjusting and communicating strategies needed to meet goals
  • Demonstrate initiative consistently and manage a more challenging scope of markets in terms of unit revenue and business growth with limited supervision

Job Requirements:

  • Business Acumen: Excellent communication and presentation skills and a unique ability to bridge the communication gap between executive and front-line audiences
  • Able to effectively translate big ideas and complex market-based developments into digestible sound bites for executives as well as analysts
  • Understanding and application of principles, concepts and practices of Pricing and RM theory
  • Have a strong attention to detail and regularly make complex decisions with limited information on short timeframes.
