Flexi Reps claims to have signed more than 50 sales reps in its first week of trading.
The new company, which provides temporary staff for sales campaigns, also said 15 travel brands had approached Flexi Reps with potential projects.
Managing director Craig Davidson, formerly Jet2holidays’ trade sales manager, said: “Its heart-breaking really, as we’ve had so many reps get in touch, all talented individuals, that are crying out to get back to what they love.
“We have had a lot of interest from operators and I’m hopeful we’ll be sharing news of our first project in the next week or two. We are already redesigning our website to make sure we can easily post and share opportunities as they come in.”
Flex Reps said it had more than 2,800 hits on its website in it first week and is launching a weekly newsletter.
“We are keeping our model simple,” said Davidson. “We provide boots on the ground for travel agent activity.
"Existing UK PR and representation companies do so much more than that, so Flexi Reps is a very natural fit and extension to their proposition to brands they work with.
"Because we are not offering a full PR and marketing solution, we are a partner, not a threat.”
