finance-grad – is it for you

The Programme

 

As a TUI Finance Graduate, during at least three distinct rotations you could find yourself supporting any aspect of our business whether it be the aircraft we fly (Thomson Airways), our Thomson stores and websites (Distribution), our Mainstream holiday programme (Tour Operations) or the hard financials (Reporting). Examples of recent finance graduate roles include Cruise Accountant, Airline Reporting Assistant, Airline Engineering Finance Analyst and Finance Analyst – Marketing & Distribution.

Alongside supporting you through an accelerated CIMA qualification, we will commit to providing you with a development programme which covers aspects of financial & management accounting, reporting and analysis whilst giving you the business overview that you can build upon as you progress through your career at TUI. As a Finance Graduate, you’ll also help deliver projects and initiatives that will benefit our organisation, the business stakeholders that lead our business and your professional capabilities.

What you will be doing:

Over a 2 year development programme you’ll rotate across four different roles within IT including Portfolio Management, IT Security, Service Delivery, Software Engineering and IT Architecture. The role could support many aspects of our business operations whether it’s our retail stores and websites, the aircraft we fly, cruise ships we sail, or overseas operations. Our programme provides you with a solid foundation in the core elements of IT, ready for you to build upon as you progress and create your career path at TUI.

The programme benefits from on-going graduate development workshops where you will learn how to be an effective leader, key project management skills and how to present with impact. There are numerous training opportunities and you’ll also have support from Buddies and Mentors.

You will work on live projects gaining professional experience in Project Management/Business Analysis, IT Security, IT Development/Testing and Service Support. If that wasn’t tempting enough, you’ll go ‘back to the floor’ at several points during the programme – you’ll spend time in our key business and customer facing areas such as retail and in-resort operations – giving you the chance to appreciate our customer journey.

Depending on your role and personal interests you will be given the opportunity to gain at least two IT qualifications; in the past these have included CompTIA Security +, Advanced Project Management (APM), BCS Business Analysis Diploma and ITIL. Your placements will be wide-ranging and allow you to understand and appreciate the full IT lifecycle. After 2 years you will have the opportunity to specialise in an IT discipline of your choice.

What we are looking for?

We’re looking for Business-Savvy Technologists – commercially aware individuals who are analytical, logical thinking and have a real passion for technology and travel. We want results-driven, motivated team players with drive and determination, able to thrive under pressure. Since you’ll be working as part of a diverse team, you’ll have excellent communication skills (fluent English is essential). You’ll also have leadership potential and the ambition to build a career in IT.

  • A BSc (or MSc) degree in a STEM subject – that’s Science, Technology (Computing, Computer Science, Software Development etc), Engineering or Maths
  • A predicted or achieved grade of 2:1
  • An innovative & entrepreneurial mind set – you enjoy bringing new ideas to the table and think outside the box
  • You have an interest in development practices and like to keep up to date with the wider tech industry
