Job Description

A unique and exciting opportunity to gain a Level 3 Engineering Technician apprenticeship, while developing a rewarding career in our Engineering & Maintenance team. You’ll work on some of the highest tech aircraft currently in operation and ensure the safe and reliable operation of our fleet.


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 Aircraft Engineering Apprenticeship, you’ll spend four invaluable years working right at the heart of our business - with real responsibilities, and the chance to work on our actual aircraft. 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.

With over 130 aircraft in our fleet, we rely on our airline to fly customers to our worldwide destinations in a safe and enjoyable way. Our Engineering & Maintenance team manages the serviceability of our aircraft to support TUI Airline’s flying schedule, working to enhance our operation and customer experience, with a focus on digitalisation. You’ll work on some of the highest tech aircraft currently in operation and ensure the safe and reliable operation of our fleet.

This programme is an opportunity for you to develop your engineering skills through a combination of classroom and workshop learning, as well as hands-on experience with live aircraft. You’ll gain a Level 3 Engineering Technician apprenticeship - specialising in the Aircraft Maintenance Fitter/Technician pathway - alongside a Level 3 Diploma in Aircraft Maintenance, all while developing a rewarding career in our Engineering & Maintenance team. 

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

About the role:

  • Live maintenance on TUI Airline and third-party aircraft, including minor repairs or modifications, under the direct supervision of certified licensed engineers (as you’ll be working airside, you’ll need to be able to produce a DBS certificate in order to obtain an airside pass) 
  • Spend time in various departments within TUI Airline to learn and understand how the supporting back-office departments work 
  • Learn about the importance of health, safety, and security in everything our Engineering teams do 
  • Develop your engineering skills and knowledge through a combination of on-the-job learning and assignments 
  • The knowledge and experience you’ll gain will be further enhanced through working at our different airport bases across the UK and Europe 
  • You’ll also work towards a Level 3 Engineering Technician apprenticeship, specialising in the Aircraft Maintenance Fitter/Technician pathway, as well as a Level 3 Diploma in Aircraft Maintenance qualification

Future Prospects

When you join our Aircraft Engineering Apprenticeship, you’ll be joining TUI as a permanent colleague, moving into a role once you've finished the programme.
