The UK IT Graduate Programme

The UK IT Graduate Programme

The UK IT Graduate Programme is a 24-month experience which will give you exposure to all areas of IT within the world’s leading leisure travel company.

Our aim is to develop ‘business savvy technologists’ who will ideally be future leaders in IT roles at TUI. We will develop your skills and provide you with a variety of placements across IT including IT portfolio management, IT security, service delivery and IT software engineering.

The programme starts with a week-long induction with your fellow graduates across all the UK schemes, followed by a specific IT graduate induction and an IT related initial project. You will then begin your first 6 month placement in one of our IT functional departments. Your objectives and personal development plan will be agreed by your development manager and you will have graduate buddy who will help you get to know the ropes. Throughout the year all UK graduates have the opportunity to complete a group assignment alongside their day to day placements, giving you exposure to a completely new area of TUI operations and senior stakeholders.

You’ll complete four different placements where you will not only gain a fully rounded view of IT but will also appreciate how other business functions work together to make travel experiences special for our customers.

To get to know our customers, hotel product and brands better you will spend a period of time in overseas operations in one of our holiday destinations, in addition you will get to go ‘back to the floor’ to better understand our retail side of the business and how IT fits into this.

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