I joined Fred. Olsen in 2002 starting my career as a Trainee Travel Agent in the Fred. Olsen Travel retail branch in Felixstowe. I quickly worked my way up to Assistant Manager and enjoyed five years in that role. In 2008, I opted for a change in career path and started training in the Business Travel team. I was successful in my job role and in 2010 was promoted to Assistant Manager, then Operations Manager before starting my family.
I can honestly say that I really enjoy working in the Business Travel team . It definitely has its challenges, especially with the ever changing dynamics in the aviation world. The people I work with make it enjoyable and I think the excellent service we provide is reflective on the number of customers that have stayed with us for many years.
Favourite Destination - I have had the opportunity to visit some fantastic places including Miami, Orlando, Caribbean and Western Canada which was an amazing trip! In 2005 the company gave me permission to take sabbatical for two months which was spent travelling around mainland Thailand and also the beautiful islands. Thailand is, without doubt, my favourite destination to date and I have been lucky enough to return twice since.
