How long you have worked for TUI?
I’ve worked for TUI since 2003
Where did your career start?
I started my journey in the summer of 2003 when I applied to Euro Disney to be a street cleaner (they got to go round on roller blades all day). Needless to say that the recruitment agency sent me to a Thomson interview instead.
After getting through the interview (it was like an episode of X factor) I then had 2 weeks of training in Lakeside and got placed as a rep in Costa de la Luz. I then spent many happy years overseas as a rep, then a team leader and finally as overseas finance. I’ve worked in Spain, Portugal, Bulgaria, Dominican Republic, Zakynthos, Morocco, Goa and Kefalonia. Finally after travelling the world I decided I needed to come back to the UK and settle down.
I’ve had an amazing journey and loved the varied, weird and wacky experience I’ve had both overseas and in HO.
I’ve been so lucky to travel doing the job I love and experiencing some brilliant excursions. My favourites have been swimming with elephants in Goa and travelling to my own private Caribbean island by paddle steamer and jet boats in the Dom Rep.
