Name: Sara Robertson
Degree and University: Psychology, University of Southampton
Which TUI graduate scheme are you on? Analytics Graduate Scheme
What are you doing in your current assignment?
I’m currently working within the Commercial Analytics team, which is responsible for looking after Cyrus (the yield management system) and working on various optimisation projects to ensure that TUI makes good commercial decisions. My main project involves lots of data and data analysis (it’s in the name!) – I’ve been asked to evaluate whether we have an effective yield management system. This is a really broad question so involves setting criteria for what Cyrus should be doing and then assessing whether this is actually happening using the masses of data we have available to us.
What were you doing at this time last year?
Lecturing at the University of Oxford.
What has been your best ever holiday?
A road trip we took around Southern California a few years ago.
What makes you smile?
Having a massive bar of chocolate and no one to share it with!
What is your biggest achievement so far?
My PhD. It was hard work!
If you had any superpower, what would it be and why?
I’d definitely like to be able to fly – never having to wait for a delayed train again sounds pretty good to me.
