You won’t just be shaping IT. You’ll be transforming an entire business.
Thomas Cook has embarked on a transformation programme like no other. It involves our entire organisation as we look to consolidate our businesses, streamline our services, create brand new products and harness the most innovative technology to deliver exceptional customer experiences.
The scale of this transformation means every part of our business is undergoing change – we have 12 major programmes, all running simultaneously. And as well as having its own change programme, IT is involved in all of the others.
That gives us unprecedented scope to influence the shape of the business now – and long into the future.
You’ll be able to say you made it happen
The digitisation of our business is very much at the heart of our transformation. Across every area, we’re looking at how we can make technology work harder for us, so that we can work harder for our customers. Each team is putting their own transformation plans in place in line with our new high-tech, high-touch approach, and it’s only by harnessing the skills of our IT team that they’ll be able to deliver on those plans.
The opportunities to make a difference here are immense. You might be helping us to get the best out of data that’s never been explored. You could be creating algorithms that will find the best deals in microseconds. You could be helping to build new teams within IT, or shaping teams outside of it. Put simply, if something is important to our transformation, it’s going to involve IT.
That gives you the chance to be at the forefront of an amazing journey. You’ll be driving changes that will go on to drive our success for years to come. And of course, it doesn’t end there. We’re not just about transformation. We’re also about staying ahead. Leading the way. Innovating, and being a pioneer. So this is an environment where the challenges will be constant, just like the career opportunities.
If you want to be part of an organisation that’s being shaped by IT – not just supported by it – we don’t think there’s better place to be.
“Our IT transformation is very simple. It’s all about increasing our people capability, it’s about having more fun, it’s about having more drive and more pace, and it’s about transforming the wider business.
I can absolutely promise that if you join one of our IT teams, you’re going to have a lot of fun. There’s going to be a lot of pressure but at the same time there’s going to be a lot of enjoyment. It leads to a huge personal fulfillment; you can influence huge outcomes.”
