Tui Group on summer recruitment drive for 1,000 staff

Tui Group is seeking to fill more than 1,000 vacancies worldwide ahead of the summer.

The recruitment focus is on destinations with candidates sought for positions such as swimming instructors, tour guides and kids club hosts. 

“These positions are initially filled for one season, but numerous examples right up to the highest management levels of Tui Group show that they can be a springboard for a successful career in tourism,” the company said.

Releasing a recruitment update as the summer season starts in many resorts over Easter, the travel giant pointed to positions available from cabin crew and finance roles, to technology and aircraft engineering jobs.

It highlighted the ‘Tui Workwide’ initiative, where employees have the opportunity to work from anywhere in the world for up to 30 working days a year.

The scheme has seen 2,100 staff participate since being launched in 2021, working more than 35,000 days from abroad. 

The top destinations include Spain, Thailand and the US, with employees spending an average of around seven days working abroad. 

“They also have a great deal of freedom in deciding whether to work in the office or at home, if their job profile allows this,” the group added, pointing to the flexibility offered. 

Chief people officer Sybille Reiss said: “People come to Tui for a job and they stay for a career. We are looking for people who want to grow with us. 

“With the expansion of our offer, the entry into new markets and the shaping of the AI revolution in the travel industry, there are great challenges on our agenda. 

“Now is a good time to join the Tui team and help shape the future of our company.

“Almost all positions at Tui’s international office locations – such as Hanover, Luton, Stockholm or Palma – are now advertised as hybrid positions.”
