A NUMBER of Thomson sales staff face redundancy as the
operator streamlines more of its specialist holidays group.

At least six people will be affected as the group
centralises its sales teams and reduces the number of travelling sales staff it
employs.

The six are: sales manager ski and lakes Chris Larrow, group
sales development director David Drake, sales executive south ski and lakes
Jane Dorkings, sales executive north ski and lakes Paul Sapsford, sales executive
south short breaks Kay Weedon, and sales executive north specialist sun Jackie
Collin.

Specialist holidays group managing director Kevin Ivie said
the changes will increase efficiency.

“There is the potential for some staff to be displaced, but
we are in a consultancy period to find them alternative roles in the specialist
holidays group, Thomson Travel Group or even within the Preussag group. It’s
premature to say they will all be released.”
