Apprenticeships are being offered in each of the 17 Premier Travel Agencies in East Anglia, including at the Ely branch.

Apprentices will be trained to become travel agents and learn about destinations around the world, gaining an NVQ Level 2.

Alternatively, people can join the head office of the tour operation-side of the business – Premier Holidays – based near Cambridge.
