The Appointment Group staff shortlisted in two categories at The People awards 2017

The Appointment Group (TAG) is very proud its staff has been shortlisted at The People awards, a ceremony recognising outstanding individual and teams within the travel industry.

TAG's in-house 24 Hours - Emergency team has been shortlisted for Reservation Team of the Year

The Emergency Team’s contribution to TAG’s Global operation is of invaluable benefit. Without the highly skilled Emergency Team, TAG would be unable to offer their clients the very highest level of service it prides itself on delivering 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The daily challenges faced by this extraordinary team cannot be compared to any other ‘traditional’ reservations team in the Travel Industry.

Being shortlisted amongst the vast amount of candidates in this highly competitive category is already an achievement the team and its Director Sonia Chaulk should be extremely proud of.
