Brand - Thomas Cook - Rep (1)

How to Become a Holiday Rep

Ever fancied working abroad? Then you should consider becoming a Thomas Cook holiday rep. Every year we're looking for responsible, hardworking people who have bags of common sense, motivation and initiative - plus the natural ability to relate to our customers. You’ll work in holiday resorts in some of the world’s most stunning locations, where sunny skies, blue seas and a bright outlook come as standard. You’ll also get great holiday benefits, great career options, great training and great people to work with.

It’s brilliant fun, but it’s also hard work for six days a week. It’s certainly not nine-to-five and not everything runs like clockwork all the time - there will be a number of challenges during the course of any season!

You’ll be a very long way from your family, friends and a ‘normal’ life. However, if you've got exceptional amounts of stamina, personality and sheer enthusiasm, you’ll have the best time ever!

Our annual recruitment drive starts in November, when we open our online applications.

If that application is successful, you’ll be contacted and invited to one of our assessment days in January, February or March.

There we’ll find out more about you through group and individual activities and a one to one interview. You’ll have the opportunity to find out more about us and what life overseas is like. We’ll also let you know about some of the preparation in advance.

We will need you to show us great presentation skills, an excellent customer service attitude and a commercial mind set. Any extra languages you would speak are of course an advantage.

The recruitment process finishes with seven days of intensive training and if you are successful within that process, you will join one of our many teams in destination - where you will be expected to work hard to ensure that you treat every customer as your number one priority. You will need to continuously strive to look at ways you can go that extra mile to ensure you leave a fantastic lasting impression of Thomas Cook and exceed every customer’s expectations of a perfect holiday. In return for all your hard work, you will have the opportunity to live and work in a number of fantastic destinations, and you will meet a number of new friends and colleagues along the way from all works of life - some of whom will remain close friends for many years to come. You’ll also experience different cultures and ways of working as you travel and work in different destinations. You may only want to be in destination for one summer or you may decide you want a career within Thomas Cook - either way you will receive great training throughout your time in destination, along with the opportunity to move into other roles at the end of the summer season. You can even choose to be part of our in–house career progression scheme ‘Step Up’, which will equip you with the skills to lead our international overseas teams yourself.
