Holiday Extras has been named employer of the year for the second time since 2009 in the Kent Excellence in Business Awards.

Two hundred and sixty five companies entered this year’s awards across 13 categories, with more than 450 guests attending the event at Gillingham Football Club.

Anouk Agussol, head of people at Holiday Extras, said: “Over the past year we have worked really hard to continue to make Holiday Extras an even more amazing place to work and learn, and this award shows how far we have come.

“It is the people at Holiday Extras who make us who we are, so really, this award is thanks to them.”

The awards, staged and produced jointly by Kent County Council and the Kent Messenger Group, recognise and reward excellence in Kent businesses.
