STA Travel have partnered up with student jobsite ParTime Student to offer students exclusive discounted travel vouchers off their holidays.
CEO and co-founder of ParTime Student, Gareth Rifkin, explained what their partnership means for jobseekers and students:
‘ParTime Students strong partnership with STA Travel, has meant that we have been able to expand our business into the travel market offering deals that are relevant to our target audience, but also offer exclusive vouchers, which cannot be found elsewhere, and redeemed through our co-venture site ParTime Travel. There is no cost to receive these vouchers and users only need to sign up to get access to these discounts’
‘The key element of our joint venture was to implement a phrase that mirrored ParTime Student “search, work, earn”. Hence, we decided on “Work, Travel, Experience”. This means that whilst we have the ability to offer students a platform from where to search for work close by, at the same time, we are able to offer them the opportunity to earn, and potentially turn those funds into a once in lifetime adventure!’
‘We were very humbled to be shortlisted within the Top 100 small businesses in the country through the Pitch 2015 competition (UK biggest small business competition). This provided us with further acknowledgement that we have developed a platform that caters to our audience, offering deals that are not available through our competitors.’
‘We look forward to further expanding the travel side of our business along with STA Travel, as we seek to build on the rolling deals and discounts, and expanding ParTime Travel going forward’.
