UK source market is ‘front runner’ for Tui

Europe’s largest travel company wants tour guides, childcare experts, fitness trainers and employees for the entertainment areas of its own hotels and clubs.

Some of these positions are filled directly in destinations, but employees are also recruited in the home countries of Tui holidaymakers.

Tui covers the costs of local accommodation, travel to and from the destination as well as necessary visas and work permits. The first new employees are due to start as early as this month.

Meanwhile, software engineers, data engineers, technical analysts and digital analysts are also being sought.

The majority of the jobs on offer can be taken up anywhere in Europe, regardless of where the future team is based, according to the company, which says flexible and hybrid working are now common practice.

Tui said: “Teams work together virtually across borders. In addition, the same applies throughout the company: Employees decide for themselves where they work. Mandatory attendance at offices is a thing of the past, if the job profile allows it.”

Employees can work from anywhere in the world for up to 30 working days a year enabling them to extend holidays with a ‘workation’.

Spain and Greece are among the top destinations for employees to work from under the Tui Workwide initiative, and the programme has also been used for stays in countries such as Australia, Ecuador and India.

HR executive board member Sybille Reiß said: “Tui has continued to invest in the digitalisation of its own processes and products during the pandemic.

“We expect summer 2022 bookings to return close to normalised summer 2019 levels and are now expanding our teams in the areas of digitalisation and destinations to continue writing our success story after two years of the pandemic.

“After all, it is our colleagues who make us one of the leading tourism companies in the world.”
