Success stories

At JacTravel we're committed to supporting career development by encouraging staff to move between departments to learn more about the business.

So much so that in 2014, 20% of all roles filled within the company were the result of promotions or people making a move to a new department.

This approach not only reduces staff turnover and ensures continuity of customer service,  but importantly offers valuable learning opportunities to staff allowing them to grow and develop with greater self-confidence.
