Great Rail Journeys' trade sale team take voluntary redundancy


Great Rail Journeys has lost its entire trade sales team as part of a down-sizing of the operation which has led to a total of 43 employees from across the business taking voluntary redundancy.

CEO Peter Liney said up to another five roles remain under consultation.

He added: "Throughout the pandemic there has been immense uncertainty for our business, exacerbated by constant change in government policy. Following recent quarantine announcements, consumer confidence has once again fallen away.

"Whilst we sought to delay any decisions regarding our future for as long as possible, the restructuring of our operations to protect the future of the business in the long term was inevitable.

"We have a dedicated and passionate team who have made this a successful business, much loved by customers.

"My focus at this time is both on handling this process as considerately as is possible for those affected, but also working tirelessly with the wider team to protect our position as the UK's leading escorted rail holiday provider."
