Andy Gabe – Absolute Escapes

A positive solution to seasonal contracts: Absolute Escapes discover the benefit an intern can bring to a company working within the tourism industry.

Absolute Escapes Ltd are specialists in self-guided walking holidays in the UK & Ireland and tailor-made travel to Scotland. They offer self-guided walking holidays on some of the finest long-distance trails in England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales, including the West Highland Way, Great Glen Way, Wainwright’s Coast to Coast and the historic Hadrian’s Wall Path.

As a tourism business with 7 employees, they were looking to take on some seasonal staff for a 6 month contract and, as the business was expanding, they were hoping that one or more of the interns would then become a full time member of the team.   

AAI was able to help by providing Absolute Escapes access to high quality candidates who were already seeking a short term contract with a view to this leading to a more permanent position.

Absolute Escapes benefited greatly from the Adopt an Intern graduates appointed. The interns recruited quickly became important members of the team, assisting with all areas of operations and in helping to develop the business further. They were very quick to pick-up new systems and ideas and also made suggestions which improved the business operations. 

Absolute Escapes said “Adopt an Intern is an excellent way of recruiting new members of staff. The quality of the candidates we interviewed have been high and we will continue to recruit in this way in the future.”
