Premier Travel has welcomed new travel experts to their Newmarket store after employing two people who lost their jobs in the collapse of Thomas Cook.
Alexis Gordon and Carly Lee will be joining the Premier Travel branch in The Guineas Shopping Centre from this week.
The agents, who have 35 years of experience, will be working almost directly opposite their old store so are looking forward to returning to normality.
Alexis said: “We were both totally devastated to hear the news about Thomas Cook. We had friends who worked at Premier and helped in telling us there were vacancies. Within the week, we both had new jobs which was a massive relief.
“We are looking forward to getting back to business and helping all of our customers book their holidays as usual.”
Paul Waters, Director of Premier Travel, said: “The travel industry is extremely close knit so we were devastated to hear the news of Thomas Cook.
“Premier Travel wanted to help in any way we could so fast-tracked interviews for staff who had lost their jobs. We are really pleased to have been able to welcome lots of new faces to our branches so far and back into a job they love.”
