Rough around the edges (much like the tourism industry as a whole) and requiring more support from HR in terms of finance if it's to compete with more established schemes. Fortunately, the scheme is going in the right direction and has eventually rid itself of its "work-in-progress" reputation. All-in-all a decent placement scheme that I got a great deal out of. I have absolutely no regrets taking on a role at TUI and hope to return if the chance arises.
The job was good because I was in a proper job role and given real responsibilty. Within my role I learnt a lot of valuable skills for example my presentation/computer skills have improved as a result of the placement. While I was always busy and the tasks were quite varied, I personally found it quite repetitive and I realised quite quickly that a role in trading isnt for me, however i'm sure that someone more suited to the role would enjoy it even more!
You are put in a real job role with real responsibilites and it was great to feel part of a team. The oportunities to travel are fantastic and their was a great working environment in the open plan office. To make the placement more enjoyable I think it would have been good to spend time in different departments throughout the placement year.
Overall, I feel incredibly lucky with my placement this year. I have an interesting job within a great team. My role provides my with a lot of responsibility and I have received a huge amount of support allowing me to develop a number of skills. Throughout my placement I have been fortunate enough to have been taken to Sharm el Sheikh, Tenerife and Palma and have really come to understand the entire industry.
I have had a great time so far on my placement year and have picked up so many valuable skills. The travel industry has been exciting to work in and I have met some great people. The best part was having the opportunity to go on a work trip to Tenerife and a cruise.
