Independent travel franchise hosts open days for prospective new recruits

Travel Counsellors report 13% sales growth in 2012

Independent travel franchise Travel Counsellors has arranged a series of open days to encourage anyone with a passion for travel to enrol on its Academy Franchise Programme.

With reported sales growth of 13% in 2012 and a 10% average increase in commission earned by individual franchisees, the company is looking to expand further.

Established in1994, Travel Counsellors currently has more than 1,200 franchisees who work from home, with the aid of 200 support staff who are based at the company’s UK headquarters and overseas offices.

The open days take place at Travel Counsellor’s head office in Bolton and include presentations from the company directors and an opportunity to watch a live recording of the company’s in-house TV webcast.

Head of recruitment, Simon Burke, commented: “We’re delighted with our success so far this year so are keen to invite talented individuals with an interest in travel to join us.

“We understand that it is a big financial commitment to start your own business so we don’t expect people to make that decision after a chat on the phone, an interview or after reading an information pack.”

The company will be hosting a series of open days over the coming months, with the next Academy open day taking place on Wednesday 10 July 2013.
