Graduate Fast Track Programme – London/South EastFlight Centre Travel Group
At Flight Centre our purpose is ‘To open up the world for those who want to see’. With that mission in mind we have designed a Graduate Programme with a difference to find the next generation of travel industry innovators. In contrast to conventional graduate schemes which offer rotations across defined departments, our programme is tailored to you, because we believe everyone is unique.
We put you in the Captain’s seat from day one because our programme is about seeing you develop into one of our Senior Leaders where you will make all the decisions. This could see you running a whole division of our business, managing the product we sell, or having the best seat in the house as our European MD. Through mentorship, we help you manage your career, because we believe everyone at Flight Centre is a person, not an algorithm. This means that we hand you the controls to navigate your own career.
At Flight Centre we have a reputation for being irreverent; we take our business seriously, but not ourselves.
