We’re looking for a Talent Acquisition Specialist who gets a buzz out of helping hiring managers find their next team member, someone who gets excited reaching out to new potential talent helping them secure their next potential career move. We’re a collaborative team who care about providing a great service, whilst also working in a fun environment.


You will drive the delivery of an outstanding candidate experience that supports our employer and consumer brand.  You will be great at building and maintaining positive relationships inside and outside of TUI, supporting Hiring Managers to fulfill their recruitment requirements, while finding and implementing new and innovative ways to achieve our resourcing delivery plans.

We are proud of our culture and values and we help to spread the ‘fairy dust’ that makes TUI such a special place to work.


Many colleagues worked from home at least a couple of days a week before the current situation, as looking after our colleague’s welfare is important to us. It’s very likely this role will begin with you being based at home, and of course there will be lots of opportunities to connect with your colleagues via technology.  As we return slowly to the offices from the end of June onwards you will need to be within a commutable distance of our Luton offices for a mixture of working from home and coming into the office for collaboration sessions that just simply work best in person!  The closing date is Sunday 20th June.
