Since we first began listing tourism companies in our directory numerous brands have been taken over or merged and consolidated their overseas recruitment for the group with a dedicated jobs website. Two of the largest, with among the most overseas jobs available each season, are TUI and Holidaybreak.
TUI Travel PLC
TUI is one of the biggest names in leisure travel operating around most of the world and incorporating 200 brands, the most important of which for our pay-me-to-go-and-afford-to-stay-abroad purposes are Thomson and First Choice, with JCA and Sunsail also able to provide many suitable roles. Positions include swimming instructors, children’s reps, entertainment roles, and holiday reps.
Between them the Holidaybreak brands PGL and Eurocamp can offer 2,800 positions ranging from instructors, group leaders and catering staff to warehouse personnel, administrators and campsite couriers. Eurocamp’s holiday parcs across Spain, Italy, France, Switzerland, Denmark, Austria and Holland employ 1,800 campsite staff every year while the remaining 1,000 jobs can be found in PGL’s residential activity centres for children in the UK, France and Spain. Tour leader roles can be found with a third brand, Explore.
