Start-up company Flexi Reps has partnered with Gail Kenny Executive Recruitment to “retain talent within the industry”.
The two companies have pledged to recommend potential talent and job roles to each other.
Flexi Reps, founded by former Jet2holidays general manager of trade sales Craig Davidson in August last year, has built up a pool of freelance sales professionals for interim or ad hoc business development projects with a range of travel brands.
Under the partnership deal, Gail Kenny Executive Recruitment will support Flexi Reps by providing a pipeline of further new sales professionals looking for short term project work.
In return, Flexi Reps clients who want to find permanent work in specific sectors such as digital, technology or e-commerce in the travel industry, will be able to access potential job roles through Gail Kenny, which specialises in these areas.
Founder Gail Kenny said: “We often have businesses ask us to find candidates for short-term trade sales projects, so now we have a ready solution to hand. We can introduce these businesses to Flexi Reps and help to keep talent in our industry.”
Similarly, Davidson said: “We are thrilled to give people short-term projects and for many they are happy to do just that. There are, however, lots of people we talk to that are looking for more permanent positions. We can share the roles Gail has with our database and hopefully the candidates can land their dream job.”
Davidson said the business had seen a “surge in interest” from travel brands keen to get their messages out since the government’s February 22 roadmap announcement. He added: “We have huge national reach with our available talent…we are ready, set and raring to help business reach a wider audience.”
