Victor launches talent search to double workforce


Victor has launched a worldwide talent search, as it seeks to double its workforce in the next 18-24 months to cater for a growth in first-time private aviation use.

The firm has already made two UK-based hires this month and is looking to further grow its international sales presence, mainly in Spain, Germany, and France, in anticipation of increasing demand in the second half of 2021 and beyond.

According to WINGX, business aviation is “only 2% off YOY in [the] first fortnight 2021 [versus] 50% declines in global airline fleets.” In December 2020, WINGX also predicted mergers and acquisitions and scaling in business aviation, whilst the outlook for the airline industry was not as optimistic. Flight Radar recorded commercial flights were down 41.7% in 2020 from 2019.

Victor is welcoming applications from all applicants – whether they are fresh to the industry or a veteran. The company is working with consultant and chief operating officer, AirlinePros International, Linzi Barber who will lead the search for new broker talent.

Victor said: “Victor is seeking global sales agents to passionately advocate this mission and provide exceptional customer service to its growing community of members. Successful applicants will effectively communicate the company’s market differentiators to drive bookings.”

Co-CEO Toby Edwards said: “After the most difficult year in aviation, the resilience of the Victor team is evidenced by our healthy 2020 performance and spurs us on to achieve our business goals for this year which includes increasing our global footprint of sales agents to profitably expand our team. The Victor leadership, including myself and co-CEO James Farley, have worked our way up through the ranks of the business meaning we understand the support needed for success and are passionate about leading a diverse team of fulfilled employees with clear career progression.”

Barber added: “I am delighted to be supporting Victor’s efforts in bringing new talent onboard. The spirit, passion and work ethic of the Victor team is incredibly motivating and I am excited to be able to offer new opportunities to join this dynamic and growing team.”
