Why did you apply for the graduate scheme at TUI: Do you know what? A passion for travel wasn’t the main reason, I was inspired to apply by the Thomson advertising and the fantastic Thomson holidays I had been on with my family. Top it off with one of the most challenging and well structured management graduate programmes in the UK and I knew I’d picked the right company.

My role is to support and assist the key stakeholders in the project as well as collaborate with our design agency to ensure they deliver our state of the art concept store for a summer launch. I am also managing the scripting process of a new retail service video.
Favourite thing about working at TUI: The real passion for the products we sell and the focus on customer satisfaction from Marketing through to Finance.
