Becoming part of On the Beach Plc in 2018 we’ve been able to expand our horizons, both for our business and for our people. If you’re interested in joining us on our journey have a look at our latest vacancies; we’d love to hear from you.
I started my career as Virgin Cabin Crew, moving into the tour operator industry with Classic 7 years ago. I’ve had secondments in multiple teams and even moved up to Manchester to integrate our sister brand, Classic Package Holidays. Travel is my passion and Classic encourages me to follow and develop my passion everyday.
As a Business Graduate, working at Classic has provided me with the opportunity to gain invaluable work experience whilst achieving a university qualification. Classic has allowed me to excel and has been very supportive. I’m now looking to combine study for an accounts and auditing qualification alongside my job.
As a purchasing executive I enjoy building relationships with third party suppliers and hoteliers ; it’s great to interact with colleagues who share the same passion for the travel industry. Recognising my strengths, talent and potential Classic are really developing my career.
As Personalised Travel Team Leader no two days are the same! From supporting my team in selling our products to conversing with travel agent partners and direct clients, my day focuses on ensuring my team are in the best possible position to offer our clients the holiday of a lifetime.
My role here is continually evolving. It’s great that Classic is sponsoring my post-graduate certificate in legal practice, to be able to provide qualified legal support for the business. It’s a testament to how Classic rewards, challenges and empowers.
As part of my business traineeship I combine university study and work experience. The role has allowed me to identify my strengths, elaborate on my personal skills, and, with an eye on the future, identify parts of the business which interest me.
