Here's a selection of testimonials we've received from Clients regarding the Travel Trade Recruitment service. We'd love to hear from you too, so please email any feedback to you account manager or Contact Us through our website.

I have had the pleasure of working with Travel Trade Recruitment over a number of years and have always found them to be reliable, approachable and efficient.

More recently having been tasked with a tight deadline to recruit a number of key travel personnel into our business I have worked with Mary Yeung who was able to quickly interpret and meet our expectations by recommending some fantastic candidates who matched our criteria.

Mary has been friendly, patient and most importantly a great level of support through our on-boarding process. Our recruits speak very highly of her recommendation to us and I would have no hesitation in recommending Travel Trade Recruitment or approaching them for any future opportunities.

Great work and huge thanks."

Samantha Hagan, Operations Manager, CWT UK

After working with Travel Trade Recruitment for several years I can honestly say that they get us as a business.
I can explain the position without a job description, and as the team have all worked in travel they understand the exact skills and expertise we are looking for. I am impressed with the professionalism and quick turn around with which we get candidates through the door.
Happy to say we have just secured another two great candidates who are starting with us at the end of the month."

Nicky Phelan, Reservations Manager, Scenic

Over the last few months, we have worked with Travel Trade Recruitment during a period of bulk recruitment across our UK sites.

Helen Cassin gained a great understanding of our unique culture and how our recruitment processes work. All Consultants have listened to our needs, worked with us in the tight time scales and have been very responsive.

It has been a pleasure working with Helen, Christine, Gemma and the rest of the team. Thank you for enhancing our talent search."

Jade Simmonds, Virgin Holidays

Hospitality Line rarely uses agencies in order to recruit and Travel Trade Recruitment had not been one we had previously had a relationship with.

I was contacted by Joe earlier this year and through our initial discussion and the questions he asked I knew he had a grasp on the kind of staff members that would suit my team along with what Hospitality Line was about.

Joe only sent CV’s through to me that were relevant and vetted so I knew these would be worth reviewing and interviewing, a time saving exercise for me.

I have always felt that he has listened to my feedback after interviewing candidates and we have subsequently hired 2 new staff members through Joe and will continue to work with him and Travel Trade Recruitment for all our recruitment needs. "

Camille Billenness, Operations Manager, Hospitality Line

I first started working with Travel Trade Recruitment almost 3 years ago and they have been an asset to me as an extension of my internal recruitment resources.

Gemma and the team have taken the time to get to know our business over this time and I have found they give a fantastic representation of our business and company culture to any prospective employees.

I have found them to be nothing but professional, with a very consistent and transparent approach which has resulted in us taking several recruits over the years. I would highly recommend Travel Trade."

Sarah Foster (Head of Global Talent Acquisition)

I’ve worked with Travel Trade Recruitment for over 4 years. I’ve always found them very responsive, transparent and fast. Once we’ve established a spec for a position, it’s doesn’t take long until relevant CVs are sent through.

Travel Trade Recruitment are then with us all the way from setting up interviews to follow up and ultimately hiring the successful candidate. This saves us a lot of time and hassle.

Many of the staff that we’ve recruited through TTR have stayed with us for many years and have been very successful in their careers.

Who we recruit determines our performance and it’s vital for our company to have a strong recruitment partner such as Travel Trade Recruitment."

Staffan Nilsson, Director, Europe Incoming

We have been working alongside Christine Wilkins at Travel Trade Recruitment for a number of years now.

Christine has extensive knowledge of the Travel Industry and has a great understanding of our recruitment needs. She has assisted with filling many of our vacancies with great candidates.

We would highly recommend Travel Trade Recruitment to support any business within the travel industry. "

Rachel, Barrhead Travel

I have worked with Travel Trade Recruitment for a number of years now. I have always found them to be extremely accommodating with my requests.

I am currently working with Marie Heaven, who I find to be friendly, attentive and reliable. Following the submission of my requests, she is quick to submit CV’s to me and always follows through with phone calls and emails to check on progress.

Interviews are arranged quickly and without delay, and Marie is always at the end of the phone/email if I need her.

I greatly value the relationship I have with Travel Trade recruitment - whenever I have any specific recruitment needs they are always the first place I turn to."

Lorna Machin, Halsbury Travel, HR & Operations Manager

I have been working with Lisa and her team for nearly two years and they have consistently been efficient, professional and passionate about placing the right candidates in the right roles.

Lisa is different to other recruiters in the way she ensures she fully understands the role, nature and culture of our business. The quality of the candidates that she sends through are all of very high standard and always a good match for our requirements.

Lisa is super friendly and not at all pushy (unlike some of our other agencies!) and I always look forward to having contact with her.

Lisa together with Gemma and Mary are a super team and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Travel Trade Recruitment in the future."

Hollie Devlin HR assistant, Travel Innovation Group

As part of our growth plan, I have worked with Travel Trade Recruitment over the past number of months for our corporate consultant vacancies.

Mary Yeung (Manchester office) is my key contact and she has been instrumental in helping me to fill these vacancies. She has listened to our requirements, submitted numerous cv’s and worked through these with me to identify suitable candidates.

She takes a great personal interest in her clients, is very responsive, professional and has displayed a very impressive level of service in her management of each recruitment case.

I will continue to work with Travel Trade Recruitment for future requirements and would highly recommend their services to other agencies."

I find Regis at Travel Trade Recruitment to be extremely professional, reliable and high in integrity. He's placed numerous candidates for our company successfully over the years.

Regis understands our business, needs and has good knowledge of all of our departments. I know the CV’s I receive from Regis will all be of a high standard and meet the requirements we are looking for as he’s very attentive and only puts forward candidates he thinks are suitable.

It’s a pleasure to work with Regis and I can confidently say, he’s an asset to our recruitment."

In the last 12 months we have successfully placed 3 candidates in to various areas of the business. Courtney has been amazing in helping us find the right person for the job. We look forward to our continuing working relationship with Courtney and Travel Trade Recruitment.

Michelle McGregor | Inbound Reservations Manager - Travel Online

We have been working with Travel Trade Recruitment consistently for over 8 years, and in our experience, no other recruitment company in Australia has been able to deliver the quality of applicants throughout this period.  Serena has made a point of only contacting us with suitable applicants, understanding the niche skillsets we’re looking for, and also matching us well for both the applicant’s needs and our own.  Due to this we have had a very high rate of retaining these staff for many years after they join.  Most importantly, Serena will contact me with an exceptional candidate even when we’re not overtly looking to grow, knowing that we will generally not want to lose a great opportunity to work with a star.  I would recommend their services without hesitation.

Jean Summers-Reeves | Sales Director - Clean Cruising 

For recruitment I need a consultant with a solid understanding of our business, culture and expectations. From Josh, he not only understands that but provides us with candidates of a superior standard, communicates effectively throughout the process giving us trust and faith in his expertise. I’d happily recommend Travel Trade Recruitment and use their services again in the future. Alex Ruggiero Retail Manager

I have been working with Serena and Travel Trade recruitment closely for over 2 years.   During this time our recruitment process has been very streamlined and extremely consistent.  Serena understands our business model but more specifically understands the requirements I have needed to grow and develop a new cruise team. Her attention to detail is always there, she provides us excellent candidates and all that we have employed are very happy within their new role.  We’re currently in a recruitment phase and we are extremely happy with the service we are receiving.

Rhian Purcell | Cruise Manager - MyCruises (Ignite Travel Group)

I have been in the travel industry for 17 years and rarely have had to use a recruitment agency. With our new business and the lack of compatible agents out there for what we were looking for however, I turned to Antony at Travel Trade Recruitment and never looked back. His service, follow up, patience and understanding of the type of candidate we were looking for just proved that he knows and understands his clients. We now have a brilliant new staff member who is proving to be worth all the effort Antony put in and we could not be more thrilled. We are also going to up staff in the near future and Antony will be our go to guy.

Brent Gordon | Office Manager - Metro Travel

Having worked Travel Trade Recruitment for many years they have never faltered in their high level of service.Serena came and met me personally to gain the knowledge of exactly what I look for in candidates. This was key for making many successful matches.The difference with Serena is that she only sends me candidates who will “match”. She totally understands how busy I am and does not waste my time with unsuitable ones. I love the follow up that Serena does with successful candidates and she always lets me know of any concerns. I can always be guaranteed a HIGH standard of candidate with Travel Trade Recruitment as they are very professional with their screening/interview process. Due to the never faltering enthusiasm and dedication I believe that Travel Trade always go the extra mile to recommend our company.The success rate for matches from Travel Trade is 95% plus which is an outstanding result and one that makes me never hesitate to contact them!

Lisa White | Travel Operations Manager - Our Vacation Centre

Amanda contacted me after seeing an advertisement that I had up on Seek for a Travel Consultant. Generally we do not use external services for our recruitment, however after not having much luck with quality applications via Seek, I began working with Amanda at Travel Trade Recruitment to find a suitable applicant. Amanda was very efficient with sending applications through and the applications that came through were of a very high standard. The information that Amanda sent regarding each applicant was extensive, she did not simply send through a resume, she sent through a detailed overview of the applicant and how they met the requirements I was looking for. It was a simple process from beginning to end and Amanda kept in constant contact throughout the whole process. The successful person for the role was someone that Amanda sent through, who commenced with us is April 2018, and has been a high performing and valued member of the team. Thank you Amanda for your assistance, it is much appreciated.
