ABTA LifeLine partners with People 1st International to redeploy people from travel industry

ABTA LifeLine, a charitable trust, has partnered with People 1st International to give travel industry employees a chance to use their transferable skills.

Previously known as ABTA Benevolent Fund, the trust seeks to help those who have been impacted by COVID-19 and seeks to help such colleagues transition to a new role in health care, social care, logistics, retail or funeral care industries which seek the same attributes and behaviours required in the travel industry. 

ABTA LifeLine’s director Trudie Clements said, “We are delighted to be working with People 1st International and providing travel colleagues with an opportunity to use their transferable skills and get absorbed in a different sector, which is actively hiring at the moment. The travel industry is going through a challenging time when it comes to employment. This scheme will help our people until a full recovery of the travel industry takes place, and opportunities open up once again.’

Those who register for the redeployment services for £50 will undergo a self-assessment to help them align with the potential industries and roles suitable to their profile, which will be further promoted with their expertise, to recruiters. The registration charges may be reimbursed upon employment. After registration, colleagues can also apply to ABTA LifeLine for financial help, such as crisis grant, debt and benefit advice as well as mental health and wellbeing support. Registered candidates will have a one-on-one session with a member of the People 1st International team, who will guide them about the most appropriate learning packages to improve their knowledge and awareness, and gain sector specific skills, to match available roles.

People 1stInternational’s UK director Sandra Kelly said, “We are proud to be working in partnership with ABTA LifeLine, to support people across the sector and help redeploy them into industries, looking for staff. Travel sector employees have valuable skills in areas, such as planning and logistics, complex problem solving and going above and beyond to meet customer expectations.”
