Apprentices - Niamh Hamill-Perkins

I joined Hays Travel in September 2017 after studying Travel and Tourism at Sixth Form. I felt like when the apprenticeship applications came around it was perfect for me! When I started working for Hays I felt like I fit in straight away. My team is absolutely amazing and I couldn't thank them enough for all the help I have received from them! The apprenticeship is great and I'm loving every minute of it. Travel has run through my family and it has always been one thing I have wanted to do throughout my life.

I attend apprentice training throughout the year to get me where I need to be and to also be up to date on all my NVQ Work.

I have also attended many different supplier events including cruise events, Travel Weekly Christmas Cracker events, Jet2 Cypriot Night and lots more. These events are brilliant for socialising with other suppliers and getting to know them a lot more and increasing my knowledge about all the different suppliers.

I'm now in my second year and I'm loving every single minute of it! I feel confident and my knowledge is growing daily.

Everyone in the company I speak to is so friendly and helpful and easy to get along with.

Within our branch we enjoy interacting with others and like to get out customers involved in everything we can. This year we had a big charity race event where all our customers, family and friends came and supported us on the night to raise as much as we can for our charity of choice.

Such a wonderful company to work for and I'm looking forward to my future with Hays Travel.
