We’re delighted to introduce you to Team Saffron, our latest addition to the Giles Travel teams. With three of our very own graduates from the Giles Business Travel Academy, the team are already in full swing supporting our core reservations teams, booking hotels and handling rail enquiries.
We welcome Sarah Fox who is originally from Blackpool but moved to Amersham at the start of the Academy course last year. After leaving university in Leeds in 2007, Sarah worked all around the country managing clothes stores; living in Manchester, Birmingham and finally Bristol before deciding to change her career to Business Travel.
Travel is a huge passion for Sarah and over the years she has spent time working in Tenerife, studying in Italy and backpacking around China, South East Asia, the US and Canada.
We’re also are thrilled to welcome Maria Di Tella. Born in Italy, Maria graduated from Bucks University with an International Travel and Tourism degree and heard about the Academy whilst searching for a job. Before the Academy, Maria told us she was not fully aware of business travel as a career and felt her time during the course was a fantastic opportunity. Outside of travel, Maria enjoys baking, meeting with friends and going to the gym.
Finally, we say a big hello to Simab Shabir who previously studied at Aylesbury College where she achieved a National Diploma in Travel and Tourism. Simab was very excited to be a part of the first ever Giles Business Travel Academy diploma course – click HERE to see what Simab has to say about her experiences. Simab hopes to progress into Sales and Account Management in the future. As well as travel and exploring new cultures, Simab loves trying new food!
We wish our new team a long, happy and prosperous career at the Giles Group.
