Seaham branch profile

Welcome to Hays Travel Seaham. I have worked in the travel industry for 25 years in various roles and I joined Hays Travel as Branch Manager of the Seaham branch 9 years ago. I have been very fortunate to visit some amazing places but one of my favourite destinations has to be Thailand, the people, the food and culture are amazing, I am the long haul expert in the branch. This year we went on a cruise for our family holiday and I have to say I am now hooked on cruising.

Kim our Assistant Manager started at Hays 10 years ago, Kim is our Cruise expert in branch. Karen has worked in travel for 17 years and had worked at Hays Travel in Seaham for 12 years, her favourite holiday destination is Las Vegas. Kayleigh joined Hays Travel Seaham 6 years ago, she is our Cyprus expert having visited this island numerous times. Gabrielle also joined us as an apprentice in Seaham 5 years ago, her favourite holiday destination is Rhodes as she has visited this island numerous times so she is our Rhodes guru. Julie is our Foreign Exchange Consultant, she joined us from a banking background 8 years ago and Devon joined us 1 year ago as our apprentice, her favourite holiday is Bulgaria. Lauren is our new apprentice who joined us in August, she loves Florida.

We are the very first Hays Travel branch opening 35 years ago and we are still booking some of the original customers from when John first opened. We do have lots of regular customers who come back to us year after year however we have gained lots of new customers from the developments of new housing estates in Seaham.

How we engage with the local community

This year we have been actively fundraising for Macmillan Cancer Support and raised more than £700 in one day through selling treats, hosting raffles and organising competitions.

Along with other business in Church Street, and with help from the town council, we arranged the construction of a grotto in the street during December 2015. To help cover the cost, we donated 75 selection boxes to local children who visited Father Christmas. The children were delighted and, despite awful weather, a good day was had by all!

Our other voluntary work includes working closely with staff and pupils from Seaham School of Technology by supporting any events and activities. Also, we took part in Seaham’s Boxing Day Dip for Macmillian and raised £320, we also held an annual Macmillan coffee morning in September and raised £820. We have sponsored a local, under-seven football team which is now playing in a Hays Travel strip!

This year we sponsored a travel and tourism award at Seaham High School. Sharon and Karen attended the awards ceremony and presented the winner with an award.
