The latest cohort of 450 apprentices are set to join Hays Travel this week. 

They will be based in branches across the UK and at its Sunderland head office.

The new arrivals came after 14 head office apprentices marked the completion of their two-year Level 2 Customer Service Practitioner Apprenticeship programme.

They were welcomed on board Fred Olsen Cruise Lines ship Balmoral as it was docked in the Port of Tyne.

A total of 30 apprentices were invited to the event, having completed their apprenticeship within the past nine months. 

An additional 30 apprentices from the summer 2023 cohort are due to complete their apprenticeship by the end of this year.

Hay Travel chief operating officer Jonathon Woodall-Johnston said: “What a perfect way to celebrate our newly qualified head office apprentices. We put a call out to ask our friends at Fred Olsen Cruise Lines if such an on board event were possible and they came back in moments to say they would be delighted to host.

“Fred Olsen Cruise Lines’ team arranged a truly special day for our class of 2024, who disembarked beaming, armed with goodie bags full of treats and lots of happy memories.”

The cruise company’s field sales manager Mathew Foxcroft  added: “We were thrilled to welcome the Hays Travel apprentices on board Balmoral in Newcastle.

“It was great to be able to give them a tour of our smaller-sized ship and really show them what makes Fred Olsen Cruise Lines different from other cruise operators. We wish them the best of luck as they now take up their new roles.”
