The personal approach pays off for Travel Counsellors as recruitment levels climb

October 1, 2013 Mobile travel consulting No Comments Email Email

Recruitment levels at Travel Counsellors have reported record levels of recruitment – up 25% on 2012.  The company believe this is down to its growing reputation for giving its agents industry leading support.

Simon Burke, Head of Global Recruitment said: “Since our inception we’ve enjoyed a steady level of recruitment, however, 2013 is proving to be a fantastic year for us globally and particularly in Australia. We believe our highly personal approach has helped us to achieve this.  Our strong sales growth this year, along with a 9.5% increase in average commissions per TC has played a part in attracting agents from a number of different backgrounds.

The recruitment process is highly tailored and personal to make it as easy as possible to find out more about life as a Travel Counsellor. This has involved holding personalised discovery days, and special editions of the Travel Counsellor weekly webcast.  All these initiatives, along with the brand investments have helped the company to successfully engage with talented travel professionals.

Burke, added: “The unparalleled level of support we provide our agents on an individual basis extends to their family and this is central to our proven track record of success.  Leaving a reliable salary can be a daunting prospect for many and we understand this so we offer the assurance and support needed to take the leap. The tools we provide to more than 1200 Travel Counsellors globally have helped them to build successful businesses, and a large number are enjoying their best year yet.

“It’s not a number’s game for us, we don’t just recruit anyone that’s interested.  Instead we select the best agents in the industry and those who, above all are passionate about providing exceptional levels of customer service. With this in mind, we’re thrilled to be inviting so many new agents to our business.“
