Online travel agency Kosmar has begun recruiting for a new homeworking division due to launch later this year.

The travel agency, which launched in October and brought back the name of the former well-known Greek specialist, plans to take on at five experienced homeworkers initially.

It aims to have 15 homeworkers by the end of next year.

The Sheffield-based company is promising agents will retain 80% to 85% of commission, which it believes is one of the highest commission splits available in the travel homeworking sector, as well as dedicated support and personal development.

Homeworkers will be expected to generate their own sales leads but the agency has pledged to take on administration, ticketing and fufilment tasks if needed to allow consultants to focus on selling. There is a monthly management fee of £49.

Agents will each have a personalised website for their clients offering live searches of product offered by suppliers including Tui, Thomas Cook and Jet2holidays as well as the company’s inhouse programme of holidays to Greece, Turkey, Spain and Croatia for summer 2019-2020 , launching later this year.

Homeworkers will be able to control their own commission levels and mark up holidays if they want to on their websites.

Managing director Jhy Worsnop-Hesford, who also plans to open a high-street shop next year, said: “This is such an exciting opportunity for us, but equally it’s an incredible opportunity for the talented homeworkers out there who are looking to earn what they deserve for spending hours creating our customers dreams come true.

“We’ve also put a lot of thought into the tools homeworkers need to trade. When we conducted research, 100% said they would utilise and feel like they have a competitive advantage if they were provided with a live search on a personal website for their customers to use – so we made an investment to bring this to our prospective homeworkers.”

The agency, a member of the Travel Trust Association, currently specialises in package holidays to Greece, Turkey and Spain.
