Travel Agents looking for a career change - you’ve come to the right place! Currently working as a travel agent, unhappy in your role, and want to know where your sales experience could take you? 

You might have never even thought about a career in recruitment… but what if we told you that you could use all of your current skills and work experience to build a successful career, and ultimately make more money!   

Good news - you don’t need a recruitment background. You don’t need specific industry knowledge. You just need drive, determination, social skills… and a few other key traits. If you’re the right culture fit, you could go far! Read on to get a clear picture of how your transferable skills could translate to a recruitment role... 

What is it about recruitment?

The transition into recruitment from any sales role can take your career to the next level! Even in the training phase of being a recruitment consultant, you will recognise the potential of this business… and how far your career path in recruitment could take you!  

Recruitment VS Travel Sales

Working in Travel Sales, you’re probably used to long hours, staying late during busy times, weekend work, target driven work…  

Working in Recruitment is actually the same! But, let me be direct… it may be the same, but you will definitely earn a lot more money in recruitment. You get out of this job what you put in! If you have the drive and the passion for people and are not shy of hard work - this could be the perfect industry for you! Possibilities with us are endless…

As a travel agent, you thrive in a target-driven environment, surrounding yourself with the latest industry knowledge. But what are your career goals as a travel agent? You’re here for a reason, you want more in life, and you want to create your dream life!  

How Can My Travel Agent Skills Transfer to Recruitment? 

If transferred successfully, your skills developed in travel sales can result in high earnings! Some recruitment skills are honed over time, but starting off on the right foot is key… and that’s easier when your skills are transferable! 

Key transferable Travel Agent skills: 

  • Customer focused: Your job revolves around ensuring customers get exactly what they want! Patience, politeness, balancing ‘the customer is always right’ and your own expertise…   
  • Great at selling: Sales skills combined with customer service! You know how to sell your destinations, hotels, products - convincing the customer to invest in their goals and dreams…  
  • Passionate: You have to love what you do, and be passionate about your work. Passion comes through in your customer service so it’s important to believe in what you sell! 
  • Great at building relationships: Building trust, and working closely with customers is an everyday task. Without good relationship building skills, it would be hard to get business!  
  • A problem solver: Your skills in problem-solving and critical thinking are key transferable skills, dealing with difficult customers and ensuring they are satisfied with the outcome of a sale. 
  • Organisation skills: Planning and business admin tools are vital in your current job, and are key to maintaining an organised schedule. You ensure deadlines are met and boxes ticked.
  • Emotional intelligence: You can read the room, understand what your customers want and know when to push and when to leave them to think. Awareness is vital…
