A travel specialist in Bromsgrove is flying high as it brings new job opportunities to the area after seeing major business growth.

Hotel and Travel Solutions (HTS) is taking on new staff after experiencing a 64 per cent growth in business year-on-year thanks to its pro-active approach to sourcing new clients.

The firm, based at Five Mile House in Hanbury Road, was established in 2010 and provides corporate clients with bespoke solutions for travel, accommodation and venue sourcing.

This year has also seen HTS expand into event management as it tailors its services to the needs of its growing client base.

The company, which employs 21 staff members, moved offices last year to accommodate its growth and is now taking on three new reservations consultants and a conference development manager.

HTS is already looking into future staff expansions in all departments to cope with growing demand, with plans to create more than 40 jobs, including both junior and senior positions, over the next three years.

Juliet Wedderburn, Business Development Director at HTS, said: “We have seen a considerable amount of growth as we enter our eighth year of trading.

“We offer our clients a highly personal and efficient service in business travel, accommodation and venues which can look at everything from cost reduction, more choice and policy compliance.

“Our main sales trend is accommodation. A total of 80 per cent of our overall business is hotels, and 90 per cent of this is for bookings based within the UK.

“Our travel options include everything from air, rail, ferries and car hire to airport parking and airport lounges, and this year has also seen an exciting development as we expand into event management.

“This wide range of services means that we have been successful at both retaining existing clients and attracting new business. 

“Due to this continued growth, we are now looking at bringing even more new jobs to Bromsgrove as we plan to expand further and would like to hear from good communicators who would like to work with a progressive company.”

The company was founded by managing director Julie Shorrock, who has more than 25 years of hotel and travel experience with leading hotel chains such as Forte and Hilton.

She said: “It is excellent to see the company experiencing such major growth, which is down to the team fully embracing our pro-active approach to sourcing new business.

“This success means we are able to grow our team with four new positions and also look at further employment opportunities.”
