Barrhead embarks on 120-job recruitment drive

Forty five new jobs will be created across Barrhead Travel’s agencies in Glasgow as part of a 120-job recruitment drive this year.

The Scottish travel group is looking for destination specialists – especially those with an in-depth knowledge of cruise and long-haul locations – who will tailor-make bespoke holidays.

The company also plans to recruit a number of managerial staff to support the growth and development of its specialist teams.

The job creation comes as part of expansion plans and the introduction of new technology across the business.

Chief executive Sharon Munro said: “This is a great time to join Barrhead Travel as we continue to expand across the country.

“We are also investing significantly in new technology, so our new recruits will be among the first to work with some cutting-edge artificial intelligence and virtual reality elements.

“Our destination specialists will receive competitive salaries and the chance to develop their career in a rapidly-expanding company, where benefits and incentives include discounts on holidays, familiarisation trips all over the world, and uncapped commission.

“We also offer bespoke training programmes and personal development plans, supported by our dedicated training academy, based in the heart of Glasgow city centre.

“As a family business which has been at the forefront of travel for more than 40 years, it’s important for us to continually look at ways to build our already strong workforce.

“Our Glasgow teams are strong and determined and we’re looking forward to growing them further with the addition of even more talented individuals.”
