A perfect introduction to the working world for your child

Here at Hays Travel, we have a fantastic alternative to college or university. If your son or daughter is interested in starting work and they are keen to develop their skills and knowledge, whilst working towards achieving a nationally-recognised apprenticeship certificate, then an apprenticeship with Hays Travel could be the right option for them. In 2018, we recruited over 170 apprentices throughout our head office and retail network and also won the Investors in People Apprenticeship Employer of the Year Award. Hays Travel has employed apprentices for over 30 years and believe recruiting, training, developing, nurturing, and retaining our apprentices is the key to our success. This is why, on completion of their apprenticeship, your son or daughter will secure a permanent position within Hays Travel.
