Barrhead Travel, which has branches in Newcastle and Darlington, wants to fill more than 50 roles across the country as they experience continued growth as the tourism industry continues its resurgence after the last two years.

With more than 80 stores, the company has positions varying from travel consultant to store manager.

As well as discounts on holidays and with other retailers, employees will have access to a training and development programme, as well as what the company describes as 'uncapped earning potential'.

In addition to the recruitment drive, Barrhead Travel is continuing to offer young people the chance to grow their career as a supporter of Modern Apprenticeships and the Kickstart scheme. From sales and administration to marketing and IT, there are a variety of opportunities available for young people.

Jacqueline Dobson, President of Barrhead Travel said: “Following two years of ups and downs, we’re delighted to see the tourism sector emerge once again. The renewed demand in travel has allowed us to expand our offering, in turn growing the team and offering expert training facilities.

“Demand for travel has continued to grow by around 20% per month since January. This is an ideal opportunity for someone interested in the travel industry and seeking a challenge with excellent prospects.”
