Business Account Manager


Do you have drive, enthusiasm and a passion to help take the North further? If yes, then come and be part of our amazing team here at TransPennine Express.

Who are we?

We are an intercity train company connecting people and communities across our cities and major towns in the North of England and Scotland.  Together we will continue to transform rail travel with faster, easier journeys that offer a step change in services with our fleet of new high-tech trains.

The North is a vibrant place to live and work and here at TransPennine Express our services are helping to keep the country moving.  If you want to be involved in something truly transformative, that will have a lasting impact on how we travel, then please join us and help us to take the North further.

What will you be doing?

As our Business Account Manager, you'll play a big part in helping us grow our share of the business travel market. This includes helping develop our sales strategy, making sure that sales channels perform and working to improve the customer experience, specifically for those travelling on business. Working with our industry partners, Travel Management Companies, Chambers of Commerce and corporate clients, you'll help maximise opportunities to increase revenues. We're big on leisure travel as well and you'll also help us to grow our new groups proposition. We've recently appointed a new team member to support this area as well as our SME corporate offering, so you'll use your direction and leadership skills to help develop them. You'll be the voice of authority and an ambassador for us on business and group travel requirements which will ensure we shape and deliver the best travel experience for our customers.

What skills are required?

To succeed, you need to understand the corporate and business travel market. Ideally, you'll have a firm grasp of transport ticketing and retail too, but this isn't essential. It's more important that you have a track record of selling to businesses and delivering results in a fast-paced environment. At the same time, you'll be good with people and great working in a team - able to influence, negotiate, present reports and above all build long standing successful relationships. A degree or (equivalent) will underpin your talents.

To say thank you for all your hard work, we offer competitive salaries and some great rewards. There's a final salary pension scheme and big savings on rail travel: free TransPennine Express journeys for you and free leisure journeys for your family. You and your family can also get discounts with other train operating companies. Your job comes with 25 days holiday plus standard UK bank holidays as well as all kinds of benefits, discounts and a Cycle to Work scheme.
