Travel back to work with us.
Older workers and mums wanting to return to work are being targeted to fill vacancies.
The posts will enable job sharing, term-time contracts and school-hour working, along with other employee benefits such as cheap holidays.
Thomas Cook chief executive, Manny Fontenla-Novoa, said he thought customers could identify better with older staff. He said: "Among our top sellers, 20% work part-time and 32% are over 50. That's why we are looking to offer further opportunities to them."
A Welcome Back campaign is also being launched for people who have left the travel industry. Mr Fontenla-Novoa said: "It's no secret the industry has had a torrid time since September 11, but this recruitment shows how confident we now are in the business."
