Working for one of the world’s leading leisure travel companies bring many benefits. One great opportunity is the ability for people to move and work in different parts of the business.
We recently spoke with Danielle who has moved from working overseas as a Rep to working within our retail shops.
Hi Danielle, we wondered what interested you about working in Retail?
As I had spent my summers making sure customers had a fantastic holiday whilst a way with us I had become interested in what goes into planning the perfect getaway for our customers.
So how long did you work overseas and where were you based?
I spent four summers and two winters overseas in Mallorca, Menorca, Fuerteventura, Madeira and Kefalonia.
What have you been able to bring to retail having worked overseas?
The in-depth insider knowledge I have on some of our amazing destinations has helped us provide our customers with hints and tips that they couldn’t get from searching on Google.
What do you love about working for TUI?
I love working for a company that is dedicated in providing outstanding service to customers from the moment they walk into a store to pick up brochures and make their initial enquiry right up to the moment they land back in the UK after having a great time on their dream holiday.
Where is your favourite holiday destination to visit?
I absolutely love Fuerteventura, I was lucky enough to spend two winters working in Corralejo and will be returning there this November with my best friend. I can’t wait to show her the stunning beaches that surround the town by the sand dunes.
Where is your favourite holiday destination to sell?
I always love selling Madeira to customers as the is so much to do and something for everyone there. You can visit the old town of Funchal and sample the delicious local drink Poncha, head up by cable car to Monte and ride back into the city on a toboggan or just relax in the quaint fishing village of Camara De Lobos as Winston Churchill used to.
Thank you for your time Danielle 🙂
