Travel recruitment consultancy C&M Travel Recruitment has launched a finance division in a bid to provide travel firms with more specialist staff with financial experience.
Traditionally, travel firms have recruited finance staff through non-travel recruitment firms, said C&M Travel Recruitment managing director Angus Chisholm.
He said: “We will now be able to offer them genuine financial expertise coupled with a strong understanding of their travel businesses.”
The company has recruited Jim Gervaise-Brazier, who previously worked as product manager for TUI and most recently worked in the City specialising in financial and accounting recruitment.
He approached C&M with the idea of creating a specialist division to provide finance staff for the travel industry.
Chisholm added: “Jim spotted a gap in the travel sector for a skilled financial recruitment team with travel knowledge. He will leading the division for us. It is a logical step for us as we recruit across the travel industry and have always assisted customers in accounts and finance.”
