I am interested in both the Marketing Lead and the Destination Manager, whichever fits my profile if still open. I used to be a photojournalist, and I am now running a small hospitality property in my farm outside Bangalore.

Before I apply, two quick question.

Can I be based in Bangalore?

I can give you guaranteed 20 days of work in a month, does that work?

Thanks for your time.

By being based in Bangalore I meant, use it as a base to work and travel from.
