The Programme

The International Graduate Leadership Programme Commercial is a 20 month experience which will give you amazing exposure within the world’s leading travel company.

Our objective is to develop future leaders for roles in within the TUI Group, to develop your business and management skills and provide you with a wide variety of experiences across our business.

An Exciting Mix of Day-to-Day Business and Project Work

The programme starts with a week long induction workshop, followed by your first assignment in one of our major businesses, for example in the UK or in Germany. For the other assignments, our Graduates receive an overview of all possible projects. Out of these they have the opportunity to choose their three favourites and will get assigned to one of them. They will be completing four different assignments in total which will be an exciting mix of day-to-day business and project work. Three assignments will cover commercial disciplines, such as Strategy, Purchasing, Product Management, Sales & Marketing. Furthermore, one assignment will take place in a predefined finance discipline (e.g. Controlling, Accounting, Audit, M&A).

In the last period of the scheme, you will have an 8 week leadership assignment to gain leadership experiences for a small team of tour representatives in one of our holiday destinations.

Initial training and feedback provide a great opportunity for developing your leadership competences to become a future TUI leader.

Targeted Personal Development

At the end of each assignment you will receive feedback from your line manager and have regular development talks with your Group Development Manager to review and update your Personal Development Plan. Additionally, each graduate is matched to an individual mentor at the start of the programme who will provide informal advice, guidance and support.

Throughout the programme you will be able to attend workshops and seminars and have many opportunities to develop your network both with Graduates and TUI Group colleagues all over the world.
