Lauren Marubbi - From Working Overseas to Homeworking

Lauren Marubbi

I started off in retail when I was 17 and after two years decided to work abroad… so I became a holiday representative! When I hung up my clipboard, I came back home and completed my University degree in tourism and event management.

I knew I wanted to get back into Travel and with Hays Travels reputation as the largest independent travel agent it was an easy decision. My mum was a big part of how I joined Hays Travel as she was a Personal Travel Consultant already. The support was amazing, everyone was so accommodating and with such a good mix of experience there is always someone to speak to for guidance and support. You are never alone. There is always someone at the end of the phone and nothing was too much for the support team.

I was also lucky enough to go on the St Lucia grand FAM educational trip back in June which was incredible. As it was last minute, being self-employed I didn't have to worry about getting time off which is an added bonus. Now that I’ve moved over to PTC from telesales I love it, I get even more flexibility and such great team ethics from fellow PTCs they really do make you feel welcome and part of the team. Obviously now being PTC myself and my mum can buddy up and cover each other when one of us is away as well so our customers are always looked after.

For anyone thinking about joining Hays Travel homeworking I’d say do it! Best thing I ever did.
