Introducing Mario, our new Sales Administrator here at the eastside rooms. Mario has quickly become a vital part of our team supporting the Sales and Marketing department. Read on to find out a little more about Mario.
If you were the only human left on Earth, what would you do?
I would travel to a warm nice country where no winter clothes are needed (I don’t like the cold!) to find a big villa by the beach to live in. Once established there, I will spend my time swimming on the sea, fishing and looking after my farm and crops.
What do you like the most about working at the eastside rooms?
What I like the most about the eastside rooms is that, as a new opening that includes a modern hotel, a large conference venue and a funky pub, we are able to make a big impact individually for the future of each one of these projects. Moreover, I love how welcoming and helpful the team has been, they are always there with a friendly supportive hand to assist me.
How did you get into the industry?
I have always been interested in hotels, events and tourism and after graduating in 2017 from my economics degree I decided to specialise in this sector and applied for my Msc Hospitality with Tourism Management at University of Birmingham. While I was completing my masters, I was working part-time as Receptionist and once graduated I started my exciting journey at the eastside rooms.
If you could only have three apps on your smartphone, which would you pick?
It would be Instagram, Snapchat and LinkedIn, I used them 3 on a daily basis. Instagram is my favourite one as I love taking photos and sharing them on social media, here at the office they think I am a little influencer… Also, LinkedIn is one I use all the time to keep up to date with what’s going on in Birmingham and the event industry. And then Snapchat as to keep in touch with my friends and family and see what they are up to.
