Want to get your career off to a flying start? The sky’s the limit with TUI. We’re the world's number one tourism group, operating in around 180 destinations worldwide, which means limitless global opportunities for you and your future.
TUI UK & Ireland is the UK’s leading travel brand. Together, we create moments that leave a lasting, meaningful impression. This is why we come to work every day, and this is why our customers choose us. With market-leading brands such as TUI, First Choice, Marella Cruises, Crystal Ski Holidays, and TUI River Cruises, plus our own TUI Airline, we create the moments that make life richer, inspiring our customers and colleagues to live happy.
Our apprenticeship, placement and graduate programmes are essential in ensuring we develop a pipeline of early talent for TUI UK & Ireland. We offer opportunities across a number of business areas, ensuring you experience an exciting mix of day-to-day business activities. Working right at the heart of our business – with real responsibilities, and the chance to work on real projects. You’ll gain a unique insight into our exciting and dynamic industry, with exposure to many other business areas and senior colleagues. You’ll have lots of fun during your time with us, and we’ll ensure you get the support you need, every step of the way.
We’re looking for candidates who are motivated, with a drive to succeed, and who thrive on looking for solutions to real business challenges, with a great communication style that enables collaboration. Many of our previous apprentice, placement and graduate colleagues are now working in more senior roles within the business, and so we’re also looking for leadership potential and the ambition to go far once the programme has ended.
Come and be yourself with us and discover a world of opportunity. Who knows where a career with TUI could take you - the sky's the limit.
1. Application form
The first step is to tell us a little about yourself. We’ve put together a set of questions that’ll ask you about who you are, your education, and your motivation to join TUI.
2. Online tests
Once you’re application has been reviewed, you’ll be invited to complete some online tests – numerical reasoning, verbal reasoning, and logical reasoning – which focus on your general ability to process given information.
3. Digital interview
If your application is successful, you’ll be invited to complete a digital interview where we’ll ask you a few questions about your strengths and motivations. You’ll have a short amount of time to consider your answer, followed by another short amount of time to record your response.
4. Assessment day
If you’re successful after your digital interview, you’ll be invited to attend an assessment day where we’ll have the opportunity to get to know each other a bit more. You’ll also take part in some interactive exercises which are designed to give you an insight into life at TUI.
We'll give you lots of hints and tips along the way, and if you need any reasonable adjustments to be made at any point in the recruitment process, we'll be more than happy to accommodate.
Culture and Values
TUI is more than a brand, it’s who we are. Trusted – Unique – Inspiring. Our people and careers are as diverse and exciting as our customers and the destinations we travel to.
It's all about balance
Feeling great leads to great things. It’s as simple as that. Many different components come together to create what we call life. Work being one of them. We want to help in making your life run smoothly and help you to be the very best version of yourself. Why talk about work-life balance when, let’s be honest, work is a pretty big chunk of life? At TUI, we choose to simply call it “life balance”.
Health & Wellbeing
We offer a variety of wellbeing and relaxation options as we appreciate the benefits that a healthy mindset brings. In addition, we encourage our colleagues to organise their working hours in the best possible way for them by having a flexible work schedule.
We aim at building a long-term relationship with you. That’s why we focus on your development! We pride ourselves in providing a thorough onboarding process, a personal development plan and digital learning platforms to enrich your personal development.
Of course, life is not just work alone. The right balance between work and relaxation is very important to us. That's why we have fun events organised throughout the year so that you can get to know your colleagues in an informal setting as well.
There are more places to explore than our work spaces. So why not treat yourself to that employee discount on a TUI holiday! We’ll give you scope to take your dream holiday, whatever it may be.
Working at the world’s largest tourism group offers a lot of career opportunities. Embark on a true adventure, with workplaces across the world and thousands of colleagues who can’t wait to meet you!
Equality and Diversity
At TUI, we know people are as diverse as the destinations we send our customers to. Just as travel is about exploration, we are on a continuous journey to make our work culture more inclusive. Spending time with us, whether you are at work or on holiday, enables you to relax and be yourself in a safe environment. We love to see your uniqueness shine through and inspire the future of travel. Creating an inclusive culture is both challenging and fun – it requires us to step out of our comfort zones, but that’s when we grow personally and in our teams. A sense of togetherness and belonging drives our team culture.
