Become a Retail Travel Apprentice with Virgin Holidays

VIRGIN HOLIDAYS is pleased to announce an exciting opportunity to join their amazing retail team as a Retail Travel Apprentice.

If you’ve ever wanted to find out more about the world, have the opportunity to travel and help people find their dream holidays, then you’re in the right place. Virgin Holidays is looking for a jetsetter in their career (and in the air, naturally) to join their team and go the extra mile when it comes to customer experience.

It’s not just about being a salesperson in a Virgin Holidays v-room — you’ll be an entrepreneur, marketing guru and a dream weaver, using your imagination to set the scene for our customers’ perfect holiday.

Virgin Holidays is passionate about their people and their brand. From meeting and greeting to surprising and delighting customers, you’ll be helping to craft incredible holidays that are sure to leave customers with moments they’ll never forget.

As an apprentice, you’ll earn a real salary of £14,625 and get to join Virgin Holidays’ world famous benefit programme, including seven return flights to travel anywhere on the Virgin Atlantic network. You’ll also learn on the job from an experienced Retail Team to gain job-specific skills over a Fixed Term Contract for two years, during which you’ll gain two qualifications:

• Year one of the programme is where you’ll undertake your Level 2 Customer Service Apprenticeship, learning to put customers at the heart of our business

• During year two you’ll embark on your Level 3 Retail Travel Consultant Apprenticeship, where you’ll develop your expertise in our destinations, products and services.

During these two years you will be offered a fully embedded induction programme delivered by not only the Virgin Holiday Team but also Outsource. They will be there to support you through regular assessments, mentoring and support visits.

With these under your belt, you will come out of the programme with real work experience in your chosen field and you’ll be ready to start a career within travel, as well as the opportunity to travel the world using your staff travel benefits!
