Not Just Travel has appointed a recruitment manager to "help keep up with the demand" in applications for its established travel agent business.
Louise Baxendell joins the homeworking network after a career spent working across a number of travel retail businesses including Lunn Poly, Thomson, Global Travel Group and Co-operative Travel Group.
She will be working with Not Just Travel’s experienced travel agency arm – led by fellow ex-Global employee Cherie Richards.
Not Just Travel said Baxendell had been given “no time for a gentle onboarding process” overseeing 250 enquiries in her first week.
Co-founders Steve Witt and Paul Harrison said: "Louise knows travel and she’s a real people person. She has a huge amount of experience and has owned her own travel business before, so she’s done exactly what she is recruiting people to do – she’s walked the walk.
"Louise knows what someone who’s starting a travel business needs. She chose to join us – and we’re delighted to have such a passionate and experienced person join our team."
Baxendell said: "I’m so excited to join the team and get going. I love the whole ethos of the company and the focus on training, development and entrepreneurship."
