Location: Bridgwater (LOC_GBR_100065), United Kingdom

Company: Thomas Cook

 

Start your career journey with Thomas Cook as an Apprentice Sales Consultant.

 

You’re interested in travel but don’t just want to study travel, you want to live and breathe it, so how would you like to make someone’s holiday dreams come true?  In this role, that’s exactly what you’ll be doing for our customers!  We’ll ask you to put yourself in your customer’s flip flops, to truly understand what they’re looking for from their perfect holiday. 

 

We offer a huge range of holidays in destinations all over the world; one day you could be helping a family plan their dream trip to one of our Sentido Hotels in the Mediterranean and the next, it could be a two week safari in the wilds of South Africa for a couple.  We can also help our customers with all the extras like holiday money, travel insurance and car hire, so there’ll be lots to keep you busy!

 

To make sure we’re here when our customers need us, our stores are open in the evening and over the weekend, so you’ll need to be flexible with your working hours. You’ll be working as part of an ambitious team, continuing your personal development with a nationally recognised qualification and earning a salary.

 

Rated outstanding in all areas by Ofsted, this opportunity is sure to kick start an exciting career!

 

Role Summary:

  • A 24 month apprenticeship contract with the opportunity of a permanent position (dependent upon qualification achievement)
  • 37.5 hours per week
  • Training salary (increasing in the second year) + on target earnings, company benefits and holiday discounts
  • Ongoing training to improve your Maths and English skills

 

Role Requirements;

  • You’ll be least 16 years old, or due to turn 16 before the 31st August this year
  • You’ll be committed to successfully completing the level 3 apprenticeship within two years, which includes actively participating in training workshops and completing work towards your qualification in the agreed timescales.
  • You’ll have the right to live and work in the UK and to have lived in the UK (or a country within the EEA) for at least the last three years
  • You won’t have started or completed any other travel apprenticeship before
  • You’ll have achieved or be predicted to achieve GCSE grade D or above (or equivalent) in English and Maths – we’ll need to see evidence of this upon offer of an apprenticeship.

 

Skills and attributes you’ll need to succeed in this role:

  • A real passion for delivering outstanding customer service
  • Able to adapt quickly and easily to change
  • Commitment to working hard in a fast paced environment
  • Be able to work as part of a team; we’re one Thomas Cook and love to achieve targets together
  • This is a sales target environment so you’ll need to be motivated
  • A confident and fun approach, with a passion for travel
  • Willingness to learn and a commitment to personal development and your qualification

 

We will ask a lot of you, but in return you’ll get:

  • Continuous learning with industry leading training to complete a nationally recognised qualification
  • Ongoing support to help you reach your full potential
  • The opportunity to take part in educational trips to support your learning & development, so you can experience our products first-hand
  • 23 days holiday, rising to 25 after 2 years
  • Contributory Pension
  • Holiday concessions and a flexible benefits package.

 

As a large global travel business, including overseas, tour operations and an airline, the sky really is the limit for your career progression.  If you’re looking to start a fantastic new journey with a leading international travel company, and you’ve got what it takes to be part of our winning team, then we’d love to hear from you.

 

Our Recruitment Process;

We ask that all applications are made online, where you’ll submit your CV and answer some initial screening questions. You’ll then be taken through to our online assessments, which you’ll need to complete within 3 days.

 

You’ll be contacted by one of our Store Managers to arrange interviews in-store, where they’ll be able to bring this role to life and give you much more information on life at Thomas Cook.
