Adele Mitcheson - My Apprenticeship!


Adele (right) began her apprenticeship programme with Hays Travel in August 2018, joining the HTOL Customer Relations department in head office. This is her story so far…

I had previously attended college for a year and was attempting to balance a part-time job alongside this. Since starting my apprenticeship with Hays Travel, my social life has improved and I now have a great deal of personal time to myself.

I chose Hays Travel for an apprenticeship as I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to get into the world of work, gain some qualifications and earn a living at the same time; it was the best decision I have made.

I love being an apprentice because all the people I work with are extremely friendly; it makes my days incredibly enjoyable. Also, the training team are always there for you with no question being ‘too silly’ and have been there every step of the way to guide me through my apprenticeship so far. The training sessions have definitely been a highlight for me; I love learning new things and I am always doing this every day.

Not only has my apprenticeship made me more mature, it has opened my eyes to a world of possibilities within Hays Travel. I will be continuing with Hays long after my apprenticeship is complete as I fit in so well with the company and so far I have thoroughly enjoyed every part of my experience. I couldn’t recommend Hays Travel more for not only caring about their people but helping me to achieve what I need.
