Leading independent travel company, Travel Counsellors has reported a significant recruitment surge with 13 new agents joining the company in this year’s first quarter. The recruits have joined as the company continues to flourish with average sales per agent up by 34% so far this year on the same period in 2013.
The increase in agents joining the company follows a successful series of recruitment events at Travel Counsellors’ head office in Dubai. The company are hosting ‘discovery days’ which offer an open, relaxed and informal way to discover more about the company and what makes it different.
Harvey Lines, Travel Counsellors UAE General Manager commented, “We are delighted to welcome our new Travel Counsellors to our growing family in the UAE. It’s great to see such a positive response from the industry – we’ve had to double the amount of open days at our head office owing to huge demand. It’s evident that our proven track record for success is an extremely appealing factor for professionals considering joining the company. At Travel Counsellors we offer the complete package; comprehensive support, attractive commission rates and job satisfaction. We are able to offer a secure future to talented individuals, providing them with a tried and tested formula to build a successful travel business.”
All new agents received extensive training on an induction programme at the company’s head office. They were given comprehensive training on the company’s technology and systems and were equipped with all the tools and knowledge they needed to launch their own businesses from home. New Travel Counsellor Adele Engelbrecht who joined the company in January commented: “Joining Travel Counsellors is without a doubt, the best career decision I’ve ever made. The support I receive is second to none and I can now give my customers the service they deserve, whilst having a much better work life balance. I love being a part of the TC family and can’t wait to see what the future will hold.”
Harvey added, “Ultimately, our goal is to keep recruiting the very best agents in the industry and providing them with the tools to succeed. As we are relatively new business in the UAE it is incredible what we have accomplished so far. Through bringing a brand new concept to the market we’ve seen a real buzz of interest in our business model. As the interest continues, we look forward to welcoming more travel professionals very soon to our growing team in the UAE.”
Travel Counsellors will be hosting their next ‘discovery day on 15th April 2015. Travel Counsellors will be attending Arabian Travel Market in May at stand number UAE4045 and will be on hand to chat to any interested travel professionals about joining the company. Travel Counsellors UAE General Manager, Harvey Lines is also a panellist for the ATM “Year in Review’ seminar on Tuesday 6th May from 11am – 2pm.
