We were saddened and shocked when news broke about the collapse of Thomas Cook earlier this week. We operate from our Spalding head office, less than half an hour away from the Peterborough headquarters of Thomas Cook, and most of us know someone that is or has been employed by the popular travel company.
It’s been encouraging, however, to see the city-wide local support offered to those affected using the Facebook page “Thomas Cook employee help page” and the hashtag “ThomasCookcollapse”.
Local taxi firms have offered free transport to people travelling to interviews, local hairdressers have offered free hair appointments, “Posh” (Peterborough Football Club) and the Peterborough ice hockey club have offered free tickets to local games. Additionally, recruitment companies are offering free CV checking and extra support and many organisations are offering job opportunities.
Two software development roles
We’d like to join the local show of support by extending an invitation to any prior employees who were employed in software development roles at Thomas Cook to get in touch because we’re currently recruiting.
We’re a web design and development business offering web development, outsourced IT management and bespoke software development, amongst many other things! We also cultivate a specific interest in product innovation and bringing new products to market, so it’s an inspiring and exciting environment here at PSP!
Due to our recent growth and unprecedented demand for our products and services, we’re searching for two software developers to suit two roles:
• A mid-range .net developer
• A mid-range .php developer
New recruits will work within our development teams on a range of different projects. You’ll enjoy the variety of the development work we carry out and the many opportunities for learning new skills.
Innovation & CPD
As well as focusing on innovative thinking and new product development, we also concentrate on continuous professional development, ensuring that you attend the training you need to stay ahead of the game.
So if you are a previous Thomas Cook employee, or you know anyone that was a Thomas Cook Employee, please share this article as we’d like to help out if we can.
Please send your CV and a cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact us for further information.
