Christian Tye

Head of Business Change, Commercial

 

In a nutshell, what does your job involve?
I lead a number of projects in the Commercial division as part of the company’s largest ever business change programme. This involves designing business processes, specifying the technology changes and organisational changes to support this, and then making sure they’re successfully implemented.

Name three things in life that make you smile. 
Jacob, Finley and Martha, my three children, especially when we’re away on holiday!

While you’ve been working at TUI, what has put the biggest smile on your face?
Seeing parts of our change programme go live. It’s hugely satisfying to see the impact of the changes, not just internally, but on our customers. I’ve worked on our new websites and improved the customer experience when it comes to researching and booking holidays. Recently, Greg, a member of my team, led the implementation of 3rd party flying, which means we can offer a wider range of departure points and destinations to our customers.

What could you tell someone about TUI that would sound too good to be true?
Working for TUI you can fly to parts of Europe and back for less than the cost of a video game (subject to terms and conditions!)

Why do you think TUI is ‘good value’ for you? 
I’ve worked for TUI since finishing university and have always had opportunities to learn and progress. It’s a really friendly place to work, with fantastic people. There are a really wide range of staff benefits too, which all add up to a great package.

Finance Academy

Finance Academy

A financially successful company is one that meets its profit objectives and delivers for the future. It is one that has robust business and financial controls to enable us to contribute towards this goal.

The finance team is predominately based in Luton, with additional offices in Swansea and Crawley and is responsible for the following:

  • Management information
  • Reporting and control
  • Business performance
  • Annual planning and forecasting
  • Payroll
  • Finance shared services

The Finance Academy is a scheme that has been put in place to support the personal development needs of staff that work in the Finance department. The Academy is made up of eight work streams (see diagram). Each work stream is responsible for ensuring that the appropriate polices, documents and frameworks are in place to meet the objectives for Finance.

The Academy includes areas like:

  • The ‘Capability Framework/Career Paths’, stream is responsible for defining the experience and skills that an individual is expected to have for each role in the Finance department.

While you’ve been working at TUI, what has put the biggest smile on your face?
The finance department fun day. After our finance briefing in the morning, there was an organised treasure hunt around Harpenden. It was such a great day – an informative morning followed by a fun afternoon with the chance to get to know new colleagues.
