ExpediaSenior Internal Communications Manager

At Expedia Group, we believe that our colleagues are at their happiest and most effective when they have the information they need to execute their jobs effectively, and they feel their voices are heard and valued. That’s why we’re opening up this new role within the Expedia Group Lodging Partner Services internal comms team.

As a division, our primary purpose is to help property partners attract diverse travelers and maximize their revenue through our global network of brands, which include Expedia.com®, Hotels.com®, Hotwire®, Venere.com™, Travelocity®, Wotif®, corporate travel management company Egencia®, and the Expedia® Affiliate Network. We achieve this by providing partners with unique market data, an ever-evolving platform, and 24/7 customer service.

This is a global role, working alongside colleagues in Asia Pacific and Europe to shape and share our strategic narrative with over 5,000 employees in 65 locations, and create strong, trusted relationships between leaders and teams.

Who you are: 

You have a natural flair for communication, combined with experience of developing and implementing internal comms programs. You understand the principles of employee engagement and ensuring that communications achieve the desired effect, and you’re comfortable using that knowledge to advise and support colleagues across the business. In particular, you understand how to gain the trust and respect of senior leaders, and you’re confident in your dynamic ability to consult on internal comms standard methodology in a way that achieves results.

You know how to build and develop a robust internal comms strategy, and which can clearly pinpoint which methodologies are required to bring that strategy to life. You’re a strong writer with a flair for captivating attention and stimulating change through great content, whether that's written materials, videos or imagery, and you can spot a typo at a hundred paces when proofing your teammates’ work.

You enjoy working in a team and collaborating to achieve shared goals, while being self-motivated and able to identify and maximize opportunities. You’re at ease in a fast-paced environment where you interact with colleagues in multiple countries and time zones.

  • Ability to translate technical, complex processes and information into simple, clear communications 
  • Highly organized with ability to handle and build multiple projects concurrently 
  • Results focused, with good analytical and reporting skills and the motivation to commit to improvements 
  • Validated history of making data-driven decisions to inform decision-making
  • Able to work independently and take the initiative 
  • Phenomenal teammate, capable of cross functional collaboration 
  • Flexible and adaptable, able to react quickly to changing requirements and new challenges
What you'll do: 
  • You will liaise with a wide variety of partners to understand the needs of the business and develop appropriate comms strategies
  • You will establish relationships with senior leaders and advise them on engaging with employees through internal comms
  • You'll help to define the strategic narrative and bring that to life for employees through creative and dynamic comms activities
  • Working with colleagues and agencies to produce compelling content that achieves a clear goal
  • Measuring and reporting on the impact of internal comms and making recommendations for change as appropriate

An Insider's view of Expedia Group

What's something quirky about your company?

Everyone is obsessed with travel…Really! No matter who you are working with or run into in the halls you somehow always land on travel, where you have been, where you want to go or what is the next trip you are planning. Talk about a company with passion!

Laura

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

In today's world, when you travel, you need things at your fingertips! Imagine you pull up your phone, click a few buttons, type some messages and get the answers to your travel needs quickly. That's what my team and I do - we give customers a rich experience to chat with a virtual assistant on any device and solve their travel problems right away!

What makes someone successful on your team?

Accept whatever starting point you have and creatively work with it to organically take a feature area, the team’s culture, and cross-org relationships to the next level. Don’t just take at face value your instructions, but turn every stone to solve user problems with joy and passion. The resulting impact is a sure sign of success.

What are some things you learned at the company?

What got you here today, will not get you there tomorrow. I believe this applies both organizationally and professionally; in order to maintain success, you must continuously evolve, challenge yourself, and take learnings from your mistakes.
