Year-old travel recruitment and training firm Ambitions Travel Recruitment & Training (ATR) has expanded its team with two new hires.
Talent acquisition operations specialist Genna Davis has had a career spanning travel consulting, national travel account management, travel recruitment, and training in the hospitality industry.
Brand operations manager Claire Castro brings experience leading international, remote travel recruitment operations’ support teams.
Company founder Fi Morrison-Arnthal (pictured) also unveiled 12 free essential soft skills courses while the company is partnering with Back in Time for Bed, the flexible working movement for parents created by Vicky Billing, head of partnerships at Riviera Travel, and Anna Perrot, head of supplier relations at Panache Cruises.
Morrison-Arnthal said: “Against an improving economic backdrop, the travel industry’s recovery continues to accelerate.
“However, candidate shortages mean that many businesses find their progress throttled by the inability to source hard to find talent. This has resulted in a strong demand for our services since launching.
“The old ways of doing business are no longer working – today employees are seeking attractive salaries that are in line with inflation and flexibility in their roles, while ongoing training and career development opportunities and a sense of mission are more important than ever before.”
