COVID-19: Barrhead Travel Announce Redundancies

Barrhead Travel has promised to provide full support to staff who are facing redundancy

Barrhead Travel has announced that it has been forced to make a number of staff redundant, due to the impact of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The agency has promised to fully support staff who are to be made redundant.

Barrhead President Jacqueline Dobson said: “In common with many others in our industry, we are having to make difficult decisions as a direct result of the impact of Covid-19 on holidays.

“Customer confidence has been dented by the ongoing uncertainty surrounding quarantine and travel restrictions.

“This, combined with the imminent closure of the furlough scheme, means we have had to announce a number of redundancies.

“We will be ensuring that there is full support available for all our colleagues – personally and professionally – over the coming months.”
