PTP recruits apprentices for American Express

Sep 22, 2022 | News

Training experts Performance Through People – part of Ladder for the Black Country – helped recruit 14 apprentices to train in new roles at American Express Global Business Travel.

The recruits will all be working with the company as travel counsellors, working towards qualifying in travel consultant level three apprenticeships.

American Express Global Business Travel offers clients a full service for booking trips, managing expenses and looking after all travellers’ needs.

The special project has been managed by Maureen Begum, a performance manager at Walsall-based PTP Training, part of the BCTG Group.

“These were new roles to the business and they were looking to work with a provider who would support the recruitment from the initial advertising stage through to employment, with the same partner delivering the apprenticeship programme.”

Ms Begum explained that this was the first time that PTP had worked with American Express Global Business Travel, although PTP has worked in the travel industry for more than 20 years.

PTP clients included HRG – the Hogg Robinson Group – which has since been taken over by American Express Global Business Travel.
