Meet Charlotte – Finance Graduate Programme

Joined Finance Graduate Programme in 2014

 

What did you study at Uni?
English Literature and French.

What interested you about the scheme and why did you apply?
I’ve always had a passion for working in the travel industry having worked at Disneyland Paris, a ski tour operator in the Alps and a receptionist in the South of France during my University year abroad. Combining this with my interest in finance as an integral part of any business and becoming a qualified accountant through the CIMA qualification it was the perfect combination.

What are you looking forward to doing?
I am looking forward to finishing my CIMA exams and getting fully stuck into my new role within Cruise Finance. Having the opportunity to offer the Cruise business the financial information they need to make strategic decisions is a current key aim of mine.

Do you have any top tips for anyone thinking of applying for the scheme?
Be yourself, show off your drive and ambition and think hard about your past achievements and experience and how you could use these same skills in a real business situation at TUI.

What is your favourite holiday destination?
Barbados

What makes you smile?
Being on holiday with my friends – especially skiing.
