Having worked at TUI for over 23 years, it will come as no surprise I am passionate about travel! I started my career within the tour operator sector of our business, deciding what destinations and hotels we offer our customers. Working for such a large organisation gave me the opportunity to move around the business, taking on a number of roles within IT, Airline and Distribution divisions, as well as running our business in Ireland.
My most recent role, Director of Retail within our UK and Ireland business, found me working with my other passion, people. With just over 600 stores and 4,500 travel experts pre Pandemic, it gave me the opportunity to work closely with an amazing, passionate group of individuals. Of course over the last 2 years the role looked very different, as we had to manage all the change that came with the pandemic.
10 months ago, we spotted an opportunity to redefine our ways of working within TUI. We wanted to ensure we built on the lessons learnt through the pandemic and adapt. We introduced the Workspace Director role, my current position and one that is ever evolving in today’s world.
