How could we use machine learning to tailor holidays for customers? How could we prevent cyber criminals from hacking into our cruise ships in an ever increasingly sophisticated, cyber security world?


We’re the UK’s leading holiday and tourism business and we’re ambitious to become the leader in technology within the travel industry with a fully digitised platform. To achieve this, we’re looking for the brightest, most passionate, problem-solving graduates to collaborate on designing and building the technology solutions of tomorrow. Technology is everything to us – it’s how we connect. To each other, to the remote communities where our travel experiences take place, and to our customers. It’s how we deliver exciting new content and creative solutions, and ultimately, deliver our customers amazing experiences and lasting memories that make life richer. When you join our Technology Development Graduate Scheme, you’ll be working right in the heart of our exciting and dynamic industry, building software alongside our expert software engineers, DevOps, cyber security, and data scientists on projects that have real impact.

We welcome applications from those who studied outside the UK. However, a requirement of our training providers and universities is that we provide them evidence that these grades are the correct equivalent to GCSEs/A levels or Degrees. You will be required to apply for your grades to be converted and you can do this by visiting: Home Page (enic.org.uk) and applying for a statement of comparability.


We recruit on a rolling basis and therefore recommend that you apply as soon as possible to be in with the best chance.  




During your time on our graduate scheme, you’ll complete a fully-funded, industry-recognised master’s apprenticeship in Digital and Technology Solutions (Specialist), with up-to-date, content over the course of two years, specialising in one of two areas – software engineering or security engineering. Throughout the recruitment process, we’ll consider you for both routes, however, you’ll have the opportunity to indicate your preference – if you have one – which we’ll consider when we assess your strengths in line with each area. As part of your degree apprenticeship, you will be required to attend the site of your university. This is dependent on the programme that you are on, but it is normally 2-5 days at the start of each term and will be confirmed by the university prior to starting. Cyber pathway is studied at Manchester University and Software at Sheffield University, travel and accommodation costs will be covered.
