The postholder will be in a unique position to help Lotus’s new Retail Department – Lotus Living – to grow and achieve its ambitions to be a national presence, by taking the Lotus Sanctuary to potential corporate partners, building and securing new relationships, and maintaining existing ones.

We are seeking an individual with entrepreneurial spirit, with the ability influence, engage and negotiate, and to work proactively in a fast-paced environment where priorities change frequently. Strong communication and relationship building skills, with both internal and external stakeholders, will be essential.
