Travel Counsellors is pressing ahead with expansion plans as it prepares to hold its second Travel Counsellors TV recruitment webcast.

The company’s next recruitment programme will be shown on TCTV on January 25, the second of the new year following the webcast on January 11, which was watched by more than 100 people.

The live broadcast gives potential recruits an insight into the company, which now has more than 600 agents and has reported a 27% increase in sales since the start of its financial year on November 1 2006.

The webcast coincides with a recruitment promotion to waive the £500 joining fee for the first three months of this year.

Travel Counsellors is also targeting business travel consultants and travel agency owners, having introduced a groundbreaking franchise agreement for its agents last year. The usual TCTV broadcast will continue every Wednesday morning to keep agents across the country in touch.

Managing director Steve Byrne said: “We are entering a very exciting phase at Travel Counsellors and now is a great time to join the company.”
