Cruise specialist agency LoveitBookit’s founder has revealed hopes to double its team by the end of the year after moving into a new office.
The business relocated from Manchester city centre to Altrincham last week to premises three times the size.
Managing director Daniel Radnor said the move signalled “a milestone” for the TV and call centre agency he launched in 2013, which is a member of The Travel Network Group.
“I feel we have really grown up – it is a much nicer environment and one we can be proud of and grow from,” he told TTG.
Radnor said his plan was to build upon a “fantastic start to the year”, having enjoyed a year-on-year sales surge of more than 100% from January to June.
“I would like to double the team by the end of the year but it is all about getting the right quality of staff, so we are not just going to bring loads of people in to grow our volume,” he added.
Radnor said the new office, a “two-minute walk” from Altrincham town centre, would allow his team to be more social and help build staff morale.
Among the office’s new features is a dedicated meeting room, which Radnor said would enable LoveitBookit to focus more on staff training and host more suppliers internally.
“There are so many cruise specialists in the market, so we have to focus on what makes us worth booking with – and the knowledge and service of the team is so important,” he explained.
Radnor added: “In the old office we couldn’t always find the space or time for in-depth training, so that’s something I really want to grow in the new place.”
He will also look to expand the company’s marketing channels – having added an extra TV channel in May, which had seen “a really positive response”.
