Thompson has a wide range of job opportunities for the right people. From apprenticeships to graduate careers, you can find a role to suit your skills and experience working for a company that will really value you. Thomson jobs are available in all areas of the business, with many particularly exciting travel opportunities available for the lucky employees.
The graduate roles come around yearly, usually in preparation for the following year. This means that you can apply for a Thomson graduate job when you have just got your degree and move swiftly into your ideal role. This is a popular choice for those who study a travel-related degree at University and know exactly where they want their career to take them. And with Thomson, this could be anywhere in the world.
Of course, there are those graduates that head down a different career path to start with and then feel like making that change and trying with Thomson. Graduate roles are available to any type of graduate, whether just setting out into the world of work or having already gained some relevant experience elsewhere. This could be customer service related experience or you might have come from a leisure and tourism background. However, to those graduates fearing the recession has dented their chances of finding an employer willing to take them on, Thomson is leading the way in the credit-crunch busting graduate roles they are looking to fill.
Managerial Roles at Thompson
If Management is more your style, then there are a wide range of Thomson jobs that could see you running your own department or leading a team to success. For these opportunities Thompson usually request that you have a minimum of 2 years managerial experience, so that you can join the company at a senior level and really make an impression. Working in the travel industry is something many people dream of, so naturally there is going to be a certain level of competition for all the roles at Thomson. It is your job to stand out from the crowd and make that CV something worth reading. If your passion is travel then Thompson are sure to want to hear from you.
The apprenticeships at Thomson are always a hot topic. They give people the opportunity to earn while they learn, and for a company that will genuinely steer them in the right direction and give them skills for life. Indeed, it may be a Travel Advisor role that takes your fancy, which would of course give you great basic skills in the travel industry, but many people don’t realise how much potential there is for apprentices at Thompson to progress much further and go all the way. Join at 16 years old and you could have a long and fulfilling career at this top travel company. You could get the chance to work in Head Office or even be sent overseas. Sounds good? Just like you, many others have made the decision to choose Thompson as their career backbone and you could be a brilliant success there too.
One of the primary apprenticeship benefits is that upon completion of the programme, you will walk away with a People 1st Apprenticeship Framework certificate. Basically, this means that any employer you approach in the future will recognise your achievement and it could set you in good stead for what you want to do next. Of course, many choose to stay with Thompson after their apprenticeship and continue striving for success with a company that whole-heartedly recognises achievement.
The apprentice recruitment drive is similar to the graduate roles, in that these are not constantly running. They will launch once a year, run for a while and then the application process will close. However, this doesn’t mean you’ve come to a dead end in your Thomson job hunt. You can still register your details and make them aware that you are on the ‘waiting list’ as it were, so they can look at your application next time the recruitment drive takes place. Companies like Thompson are always wanting to hear from bright, intelligent and enthusiastic people, so let them know you’re out there, for they won’t be able to find you otherwise!
Different Thompson Opportunities
It could be that you want to work in retail and advise people in a Thomson shop on the high-street. If you have any travel or retail experience then this will already give you an advantage. Some people want to travel overseas, but others want to stay a bit closer to home so it’s up to you how far you push yourself to gain the ideal Thomson job. Being a retail travel advisor means each day will be different and you’ll get to meet happy holiday seekers trusting you to find them that perfect deal. The retail travel roles are very popular, so enthusiasm is essential.
However, if travelling abroad has been your ideal Thomson job from Day One, then you have the opportunity to work overseas in a completely different job. This role is ideally suited to someone looking to travel and gain a career at the same time. In-demand and a naturally popular choice, the overseas Thomson jobs always attract many applicants looking for a much relieved break from the UK weather. Thomson gives applicants a real chance of success and genuine career opportunities to those willing to work hard. If you love travel and making people happy then this could be the ideal company to work for.
