Daisy Has the World at Her Feet

Former Travel and Tourism student Daisy Gallacher clinched a holiday rep job at national company Thomson Holidays thanks to the industry insight she gained during her course.Daisy had originally set her sights on a cabin crew job but, after learning more about the career opportunities at holiday resorts.

"The course showed me the opportunities available in the travel and tourism industry and, as I love working with people, I set my sights on a reps job.
"This was the first job that I applied for whilst still at College. We had to go through a lengthy recruitment process but I was delighted when I got the high season job.
"Knowing about the industry and the specific role of the reps was definitely an advantage.
"It is a contract until the early Autumn and I will then be well placed to apply for other jobs around the company at resorts across the world."
