Following the collapse of Thomas Cook, many Peterborough businesses have rallied to support those affected. From taxi firms offering free rides to interview to free football match tickets there have been so many different offers of help for the travel firm’s former employees.
We also wanted to offer our support, so we recently held CV masterclasses and interview workshops exclusively for former Thomas Cook employees. Offering one-to-one interview and CV advice, the sessions aimed to provide guidance for those who are job hunting following the firm’s collapse.
We wanted the opportunity to say a huge thank you to all those who helped with this initiative – we couldn’t have done this without the support of the Peterborough business community. Our thanks go to the HR professionals from:
- The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs
- British Telecom
- Associated British Foods
- Royal Haskoning
Their time out on a busy Thursday was hugely appreciated to give interview experience, tips and advice to those from Thomas Cook.
The feedback and thanks from those who attended has been all-round positive, with one attendee saying: “Thank you so much for arranging the interview support sessions today. I found this incredibly useful and so pleased I booked an appointment! The support from yourself and your team has been second to none and I for one am extremely grateful.”
