Commenting on the initiative, the branch manager at Shipley’s Hays Travel, Kerry Appleby, said, “I began my career through work experience 20 years ago and I have loved the path that it led me down.”

“We feel it is so important to give them a taste of what a career in the travel industry could look like,” added Ms Appleby.
