Sunderland based Hays Travel buys Thomas Cook stores | ITV News

The Sunderland-based firm, Hays Travel, has begun a massive recruitment exercise to take on former Thomas Cook staff.

It has also bought all the former Thomas Cook travel shops – more than five hundred of them.

Hays completed the acquisition of the stores late last night – and opened a phone line for job applicants this morning.

Thomas Cook went into liquidation last month – with the loss of nine thousand jobs, across the UK.
