BTA launches jobs board for Thomas Cook staff

The Business Travel Association (BTA) has launched a jobs board on its website to help identify opportunities for former Thomas Cook staff.

Following the tour operator’s collapse this week, the BTA will showcase employment opportunities across its network of travel management companies and industry partners.

Roles currently being advertised include branch manager, product manager and account manager positions, and openings at the likes of Eurostar, Lufthansa and Marriott Hotels.

“This has clearly been an incredibly difficult and stressful time for Thomas Cook and the thousands of staff who now face an uncertain future,” says BTA Chief Executive Clive Wratten.

“That said it is encouraging to see the industry coming together and displaying such a united approach in working to mitigate some of the fallout by profiling the wealth of employment and career opportunities that are currently available, and we have developed the job board to support just that.

“There is a strong level of knowledge and expertise within the now ex-Thomas Cook staff community. It is important that across business and leisure travel we work together to ensure this isn’t lost and those members of staff who have sadly lost their jobs are given every opportunity to continue to build their career and flourish within the travel industry.”
