Christchurch branch profile

Welcome to Hays Travel Christchurch, where I am proud to be the Manager. My name is Denise and I have been in the travel industry since 1997, having joined Hays Travel in 2006. I have been in the Christchurch branch since 2011 and became Manager in 2016. I have a real passion for travel and have visited many exotic destinations such as the Caribbean, Canada and the USA. I also love family holidays and have been to Lapland and California with my family in recent times. Cruising is a real passion of mine last year I was lucky enough to experience the iconic transatlantic sailing on board the Queen Mary 2 sailing to Southampton from New York.

Let me introduce you to my fantastic team.

Chauntelle joined Hays in 2016 as an apprentice. She has a passion for travel and hopes to one day go all over the world. She has so far travelled to Cyprus, Venice, Florence, Rome, Sorrento and New York. She had moved into our training department once she has completed her apprenticeship and has recently been promoted to our Assistant Manager here in Christchurch. Beverley joined the team in 2014, she has traveled the world extensively and even experienced living in Australia and California. It's not just sunshine and beaches for Bev; she also has a passion for skiing and taking on the slopes in the French Alps. Cheryl has in excess of eight years' travel experience, having joined Christchurch branch in 2011. Cheryl has fantastic knowledge of European destinations and has just returned from a family holiday to Lanzarote. At Hays Travel, we think education and staff development are very important and we strongly support our award-winning apprenticeship programme. Lucy is our 2nd year Apprentice and has been with us since September 2017. She is keen on learning and developing her skills and shows huge potential to shine bright in her role. Before joining us, she went travelling for six months and visited Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, and South East Asia. More recently she has been lucky enough to visit India, Croatia, Malta, Prague, Munich Christmas market, Dubai and Florence. Megan joined our team in 2017 and is about to start her 2nd year of the apprenticeship programme. She is our Tenerife specialist as she has travelled there for past 11 years. She also loves Canada and visited Lapland and Disney Paris. Last but not least is our Foreign Exchange Cashier, Martin, who joined us in 2017 with over 10 years ' experience. Martin has superb knowledge within his role and always strives to ensure all clients get the best rate and offers available.

Christchurch is a fantastic place to work and we believe that customer service is vital. We have a good loyal customer base and we continue to expand on this. We love to see new faces and we give all our customers the best possible service. We specialise in all types of holidays from world cruises, bespoke tailor-made itineraries, family beach holidays, and UK and attraction breaks. We offer very competitive rates for our foreign exchange in the branch and always give preferential rates to our customers.

How we engage with the local community

This year we have been working closely with Life Education Wessex.

Life Education Wessex aims to educate every child with knowledge and skills to stand up to peer pressure. They empower children to make healthy choices and work to prevent substance misuse (alcohol, tobacco and drugs), obesity, bullying/peer group pressure and mental health problems in children and teenagers.

In order to raise money for the charity we took part in a very challenging 5K Zombie Run and also held a raffle in the branch. In total, we have managed to raise £287 for this great project!
