The Programme

The Programme

The International Graduate Leadership Programme is an 18 month experience which will give you amazing exposure within the world’s leading travel company.

Our objective is to develop future leaders for roles in within the TUI Group, to develop your business and management skills and provide you with a wide variety of experiences across our three business Sectors; Mainstream, The Hotelbeds Group and Specialist & Activity.

An Exciting Mix of Day-to-Day Business and Project Work


The Programme starts with a week long induction workshop, followed by your first assignment in one of our major businesses, for example in the UK or in Germany. Based on your personal development plan, subsequent assignments will be agreed with your Group Development Manager. You will be completing five different assignments in total which will be an exciting mix of day-to-day business and project work covering all commercial disciplines, such as Product, Pricing, Purchasing, Yield, Contracting, Trading, Sales & Distribution and Business Development.

To get to know our products and customers better, you will also spend two to three weeks working as a tour representative in one of our holiday destinations. In another assignment you will return to a holiday destination for 8 weeks to take over a leadership role for a small team of tour representatives.

Initial training and feedback provide a great opportunity for developing your leadership competences to become a future TUI leader.

Targeted Personal Development


At the end of each assignment you will receive feedback from your line manager and every three months you will have development talks with your Group Development Manager to review and update your Personal Development Plan. Additionally, each graduate is matched to an individual mentor at the start of the programme who will provide informal advice, guidance and support.

Throughout the programme you will be able to attend workshops and seminars and have many opportunities to develop your network both with Graduates and TUI Group colleagues all over the world.

After approximately one year, you will attend a Development Centre to help identify your personal development needs and to inform your ongoing career development.
