G Touring appoints operations manager in team rebuild

Simon Grout has joined G Touring brands Travelsphere and Just You as operations manager.

He has 15 years’ experience in tour operations, product development, commercial contracting, sales and reservations gained in various roles with The Travel Corporation group in the UK, Switzerland and the Channel Islands.

Travelsphere operated its first overseas holiday in more than 20 months to Malta last week.

Just You has been running UK tours since August and returned to  overseas trips in early October to Iceland and Jordan.

G Touring managing director Alastair Campbell said: “Simon brings with him a wealth of experience of all areas of tour operating.

“As Just You and Travelsphere continue to operate more holidays, the time is right to strengthen with someone with Simon’s expertise and commitment to delivering exceptional experiences.

“It is great to be rebuilding our team at G Touring. We are currently on the lookout for committed and passionate people to join our contact centre and customer support team.”

Grout added: “Just You and Travelsphere are back on the road giving their customers experiences that they will cherish forever.

“My role is to make sure these amazing brands deliver ever greater experiences to our loyal customers and stay true to our mission of changing people’s lives through travel.”
