Nicole, Teamleader T24 about the job: 'The daily job at T24 EMEA is one of the most varied jobs you can imagine in the travel industry. Every day is different. Weather issues, strikes or just a normal shift, we need to find ad hoc solutions for passengers all over the world. As a Teamleader T24 you will lead our international, virtual team from home and help where ever possible so the team can do their job. The variety and flexibility in shifts are a plus for me. Yes, you will have to work every other weekend, but this also means you will be off during the week. You will have your own team and will be in contact with them mostly via Skype and phone, but you will be able to meet them too. As a Teamleader you have a very diverse role, one shift you are helping passengers on the phone, the next shift you will be helping our colleagues with finding (sometimes very creative) solutions and another shift you will be leading your team. I can only say, that even after almost 20 years at T24, I still love my job and wouldn't change it for a bit. The contact with the other T24 Teamleaders and colleagues around the world, the rush of every day is different, finding solutions in a short time (and the good feeling afterwards when it worked) and helping my team to get better in what they are doing. These are just some of the things that make me smile when I start up my computer at home to start another day in the T24 office.'
