Travel Counsellors predicts record number of new recruits

Travel Counsellors predicts it will take on a record number of new recruits this year, thanks in part to its new recruitment campaign, ‘TC IT’ (pictured).

The homeworking agency has already seen a 122% year-on-year increase in enquiries from people wanting to join Travel Counsellors, with more than 70 new enquiries by the end of the first week of January.

The ‘TC IT’ campaign focuses on Travel Counsellors’ model, demonstrating how franchisees can expand their business in a way that suits them.

It shows how franchisees can develop, either with others or individually, with case studies showcasing their experience.

Twelve new leisure and corporate agents have joined in January and together have 150 years’ combined experience in the sector.

They have backgrounds in business travel, leisure and cruise and include those who worked with other homeworking agencies.

Akhtar Jaffer, who joined this week from another travel franchise business, said: “I really felt I wanted to achieve more in growing my own business and after speaking with several Travel Counsellors, it was clear there is so much opportunity.

“I am so impressed with the model, technology and the community, which will allow me to build my business my own way and give a more personal service to my customers.”

Matt Harding, head of franchise recruitment and training at Travel Counsellors, added: “We have seen a sharp rise in enquiries this year as travel continues to boom and professionals look to reap the rewards and flexibility of running run their own business, whilst being able to provide a really personal service to their customers.

“The level of options in terms of joining and scaling by harnessing our technology and community is proving an extremely attractive proposition, and we’ve seen some phenomenal success for our business owners.

“We have more Travel Counsellors than ever before working in teams and duos and earning an average 30% more as a result.

“Through our TC IT campaign we are showing that becoming a TC is more than being a travel agent, our franchisees are ambitious individuals and business owners who have adopted our model to make it work for them. They’ve ‘TC-d it’.”

Last year the leading independent travel company welcomed more than 150 new franchisees globally, with October and November seeing the largest intake of new franchisees since the Thomas Cook collapse.
