What Scheme you are on: I.T.
What you are doing in your current assignment: I started my first assignment by coordinating the preparation planning for Peak Trading – TUI’s most important trading period (highest sales of the year). During this phase I had the opportunity to engage with our most significant suppliers and ensure that everything was set to perfection for these essential weeks. Afterwards I have taken part and full ownership of diverse projects that have given me the opportunity to work with people all over I.T. and the wider business, experience how it is to drive your own project and learn from different teams and working styles.
Favourite thing about working at TUI: One of my favourite things about TUI is probably the fact that it is going through an essential change period that involves everybody and impacts the whole company. Most impressive however is to see how engaged and involved all people across the company are with these changes. They or we give TUI the drive and passion it needs.
