Scottish operator goes on recruitment drive

Small group tour operator Rabbie’s Trail Burners is on the hunt for new talent to join its team, with its largest recruitment drive in the company’s 18 year history. With tours stretching from the Yorkshire to the Outer Hebrides, 2010 was Rabbie’s most successful year to date, with more than 35,000 visitors choosing to explore Scotland and the north of England with the independent travel company. In order to meet with growing demand, Rabbie’s has undertaken a comprehensive three year business expansion plan. This includes increased departure dates of its existing one to 16 day tours and adding new routes. All of which requires the fleet of luxury Mercedes mini-coaches to grow by over a third and new driver-guides to be appointed. There are currently 12 positions available, operating from Edinburgh and Glasgow, with plans to hire a total of 40 new recruits over the next three years. “These are intimate tours, with a maximum of 16 passengers per trip,” added Robin Worsnop, managing director of Rabbie’s Trail Burners. “The personalities of our driver-guides are one most important and memorable components of the Rabbie’s visitor experience.”
