Not sure about going to University? Fancy kick-starting your career early? Well, look no further. The Commercial Apprenticeship Scheme based in our Luton head office gives you a world of opportunities with lots of support on your journey to success.
It’s a really exciting time to join TUI. We are the world’s leading travel company, continually looking to innovate and adapt our products, to ensure our customers have an amazing experience. In your role you will be responsible for the planning and trading of our fantastic holidays, whilst working towards a Higher Apprenticeship in Business & Professional Administration – with the added bonus being a permanent role at the end of your time on the scheme
What you will be doing
As a Commercial Apprentice on our two year Commercial Apprenticeship Scheme, you will get a great insight into how we go about planning, pricing and selling our TUI and First Choice holiday experiences. This role will involve 2 placements (each one year) in 2 of 3 core commercial departments; Product Planning, Trading & Aviation Planning. All three roles are perfect to gain an insight into how our business works on a day-to-day basis.
Within our Trading team you will learn how we sell our flights seats and hotel beds at the right price, in order to hit our key targets, as well as how we monitor our competitor’s activity.
Within our Product Planning team, you will be learning how we select which new holiday concepts and hotels to offer our customers, as well as how we price them and present them to our customers, from the content on our websites, to brochures in our retail stores and even on social media.
Within our Aviation Planning Team, you will see how we manage and plan our flying programmes. You will work within the Aviation Support team loading our flying into our systems, managing seasonal changes to our programmes, and then communicating these to our suppliers and customers.
Based at our head office in Luton, the rotational nature of the Commercial Apprenticeship Scheme, gives you a fantastic opportunity to experience many different aspects of our business. Once you’ve begun life at TUI, we’ll provide an induction plan for you, alongside a structured development process, ensuring you continue to learn and develop your skills throughout the programme with the aim of you earning a Higher Apprenticeship qualification. You’ll be assigned a mentor to support you for the duration of the scheme which starts in August 2019.
