Meet Ellie – IT Graduate Programme

Joined IT Graduate Programme in 2018

What interested you about the scheme and why did you apply?

I think the main things for me were the fact that TUI is a global company, as well as the structured graduate program, as I really wanted somewhere that gave me lots of opportunities to try different things. I also really liked the fact TUI is a travel company as it is a really fast paced and exciting industry which covers lots of different portfolios including airline and cruise! The scheme is also extremely supported and there are 3 different graduate schemes, which also makes it a social place to work.

What are you looking forward to doing?

I am looking forward to exploring all the different portfolios in TUI, especially cruise! I am also excited for the overseas placement at the end of my first year and the opportunity to work with people in numerous areas of IT.

Do you have any top tips for anyone thinking of applying for the scheme?

Try not to overthink the whole recruitment process, no one is there to catch you out they just want to see how great you are! Just be yourself because that’s what TUI is all about!

What is your favourite holiday destination?

I still have loads of places I want to explore, but currently Santa Barbara, California as well as Nerja on the Costa Del Sol in Spain.

What makes you smile?

Nice people and a pink gin or glass of Prosecco!
