Major Travel expects the headcount at its new Peterborough office to grow five-fold and expects to seek investment in 2020.
TTG exclusively attended the opening of Major’s new tailor-made brand Signature Long Haul’s offices last week, which comprises 21 former Thomas Cook Signature staff.
Adrian Parsley (reservations), Rute Magalhaes (after-sales for both Major and Signature) and Candy Homes (learning and development) have been appointed team leaders.
The team has been undergoing intensive training at both the Lynch Wood offices – a stone’s throw from the former Cook headquarters – and at Major’s main London base, ready for a 2 December launch.
The Mayor of Peterborough cut the ribbon at the office opening, with MP Lisa Forbes, a former Cook employee herself, expressing her delight that a pool of Cook talent has been retained in the city.
