Kimberley Sellman -Apprentice to Assistant Manager

Kim Sellman

I love working at Hays Travel for many reasons, there's a real family atmosphere throughout the company which I love. I never feel that I am alone working with Hays, I am always supported by not just my team in the branch but also by our Head Office. I love that every day is different when you work in travel, you are always meeting new people and working on new and exciting enquiries.

I started my Apprenticeship with Hays Travel in September 2014. It was my first job in travel after studying at college. The Apprenticeship taught me everything I needed to know about the travel industry and I attended training sessions on customer excellence, destinations and systems. In my second year I was trained in foreign exchange.

Since completing my 2 year Apprenticeship with Hays Travel I have progressed into the role of Assistant Manager. I love the progression opportunities available at Hays Travel. After my Apprenticeship I was given the opportunity to take part in a programme called Rising Stars which opened the door to my promotion. I think it's amazing that in the space of 4 and a half years I have been able to progress from an Apprentice to an Assistant Manager.

I am proud to say that I have won the High Flyer of the Month award a couple of times.

As a company Hays really do look after you and I always looked forward to the fabulous events they put on for us. Every year I enjoy the Christmas Party and last year I attended the High Flyers Ball.
