About the programme

Starting our first in-take from November 2021, the Travel Access Programme promises to equip all of its participants with top knowledge, insights and tips to become a successful Travel Consultant within the Hays Travel family.

The Travel Access Programme is a 6-month intensive training schedule for anyone already in a sales and/or retail based role but hasn’t yet had experience within the travel industry. Your first six weeks will be spent in a virtual classroom training environment with your fellow cohort participants. During this time, our dedicated Learning and Development team will show you the ‘Hays Way’ on our service ethos, top techniques in sales, how to use our systems and provide a knowledge foundation about our product mix.

Following your six week virtual classroom training, you’ll be given an initial assessment before joining one of our friendly travel teams in a selected branch for a further six weeks, where you’ll have a dedicated mentor to support you put your training into practice. With the help of weekly skills trackers, daily coaching and monthly ‘Steps to Success’ reviews, your second assessment will take place at week 12 of the programme. Providing you meet the required standard, you’ll move forward into the final 12 weeks of the programme.

During this stage, you’ll be working alongside our Travel Consultants in branch, Regional Sales Manager and our Learning and Development team to refine your skills, and at the end of the 6-month programme, you’ll take the final assessment & upon successful completion will begin your travel consultant career with Hays Travel.
