A recruitment drive to support ambitious growth plans has been unveiled by activity group travel specialist Red7.

The aim is to double the sales team to over the coming months.

Red7 recruited eight people to its sales team before Christmas and wants to add 15 more across both sales and sales support functions.

The Brighton-based company wants to develop a strong sales and sales support team as it expands beyond the hen and stag party sector.

Corfu, Zante and Lisbon have also been added to the destinations offered following a rebrand as the firm seeks to handle birthday weekends, family breaks or trips away by groups of men and women.

Managing director, Teresa Nicholson, said: “The recruitment drive is the next step towards developing our new brand and pushing forward with our growth plans.

“We know we need a strong sales team behind us to successfully grow the business, so we are investing time and effort into finding the best people, and we will support them with specialist training to ensure we continue to deliver the expert level of service our customers have come to expect.”
