Want to get your career off to a flying start? The sky’s the limit with TUI. We’re the world’s number one tourism business, operating in around 180 destinations worldwide, which means limitless global opportunities for you and your future. 
 

As part of our Solicitor Apprenticeship, you’ll spend six invaluable years working right at the heart of our business – with real responsibilities, and the chance to work on real projects. You’ll gain a unique insight into our exciting and dynamic industry, with exposure to many other functional areas and senior colleagues. You’ll have lots of fun during your time with us, and we’ll ensure you get the support you need every step of the way. 
 

Our Legal team is responsible for all legal activity, policies and political affairs across the business. If you want to train to be a solicitor, you can do so with our in-house team. It takes six years – which is shorter than the traditional university route – and you’ll end up with a recognised law degree. 
 

With our Level 7 Solicitor Apprenticeship, you’ll start off by getting to grips with the basics, building networks across the business, as well as your all-round knowledge of the profession. This will lead on to getting involved in more complex cases as you build your expertise and capability as an apprentice solicitor – with the learning and qualifications to back you up. As the apprenticeship is a slightly shorter route to becoming a solicitor than going to university, it’s an intense programme, but we’ll support you every step of the way with a university tutor and a colleague mentor.

 

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