Meet Marie-Clare – IT Graduate Programme

marie-clareJoined IT Graduate Programme in 2016


What did you study at Uni?
I studied BSC Psychology with Criminology at Northumbria University and a MSc Computer Science at Newcastle University.

What interested you about the scheme and why did you apply?
My main motivation was to find an IT grad job that allowed job rotation. My course was a conversion masters meaning it was a condensed course, so I was constantly learning new things. This fast pace meant I was still unsure of what job role was suited to me. My second motivation was the fact that TUI was a well-known brand  and a large organisation, meaning more opportunities could arise. Third motivation was the fact that TUI is a travel company, this for me was an added bonus.

What are you looking forward to doing?
Before I started this job, security interested me the most. Now that I am in Security (and enjoying it), I am interested in finding out what the other roles have to offer.

Do you have any top tips for anyone thinking of applying for the scheme?
During the recruitment stage show what you have to offer the company, be honest and be yourself.

What is your favourite holiday destination?
Although, I love chilling on a  beach in the sun, my favourite holidays are generally ski holidays, so for me I would have to choose Val Thorens.

What makes you smile?
Most things make me smile but usually it will be the company I am with. There is nothing better than spending time with positive, happy people.
