When does the Graduate Programme start and how long does it last?

We offer two entry dates per year – March and September. The Graduate Programme lasts for 18 months. The length of each assignment is usually three to five months.

Is there a deadline for applications?

Yes. We have two entry dates each year. Our closing dates are 15th March for the September intake and 15th September for the March intake.

Will I be given feedback if my application is unsuccessful?

Each application will be responded to, but unfortunately due to the high number of applications we receive, we are not able to provide detailed feedback to unsuccessful candidates after application screening, the video introduction, online assessment and telephone interview stage. However, we will provide individual feedback to all candidates who attend one of our assessment centres.

Where will I be based?

Our graduates are required to be highly flexible and internationally mobile.

Most of your assignments will be based in one of our European businesses. The first assignment will be based either in our head office in Hanover, Germany or Luton, England. During the 8 week leadership assignment, you will be leading a small team of tour representatives in one of our main holiday destinations.

Who organises the accommodation for each assignment?

We expect our graduates to look for accommodation themselves, but we will support you in your search. Graduates also help each other with accommodation in countries they have worked in.

What happens when the Graduate Programme is over?

Our objective is to develop future commercial leaders for roles in TUI Group. Assuming that you receive excellent feedback from your assignments, there will be many opportunities open to you upon completion of the programme. The personal network you established will be beneficial in finding a suitable role within the Business and you will get support in your job search.

At the end of the programme, previous graduates have taken permanent roles in commercial areas like Product, Purchasing, Pricing, Distribution, Business Development and Key Account Management, to mention a few.
