Lauren's trip to Turkey

15 March 2015

So, first blog and no other way to start than talking about my new adventure I'm about to make in this big wide world! In early February 2015, I applied for a position with Tui Ltd, the parenting company of Thomson and First Choice. At first I thought nothing of it, thought ah I'll give it a shot! But became increasingly excited once I received an email to attend an Assessment day at Gatwick! The email informed me to produce a three minute presentation and make a badge that represents my skills and qualities as a person, bonus! Done my research and after two weeks, I was done! The assessment day came! And I set off early to Gatwick centre! Filled with nerves and excitement! Done our presentations, acted like a prat dancing around, had my 1:1 interview, and boom! Hometime! A few days later whilst spending time with my brother and dad, I received a phone call, my heart was literally in my mouth! It was Tui Travel! Informing me I got the job!!

Emails came through like no tomorrow, handed my notice in at work! And Thursday 5th - Tuesday 10th March was training in Milton Keynes! Nervous, but excited, I arrived! It was amazing! Met some amazing girls, met all the staff, and was entertained by the entertainment team, learnt about the specialist activities we would provide! Dressing up, Acting silly, Amazing! Now, I'm back home, with emails constantly pinging, going to the Turkish Consulate on Tuesday! Then it's flight confirmation and I'll be jetting off into Side, Antalya! Recommendations for Side fully welcome! Lauren x
