You’ll help create memories for millions

Jet2 Holidays

There’s something infinitely rewarding in working for a successful airline and tour operator. By creating products that help deliver world-class flights and holidays – whether you’re working on the website, developing the app or creating internal systems to support customers and colleagues overseas – you’re an integral part of a team helping to create millions of happy memories. Even behind the scenes, every action you take makes a difference, injecting joy into people’s lives. If you want to have a positive impact on millions of people, this is the place for you.

You’ll join a vibrant, close-knit team


One of Jet2’s core values is to ‘work as one team’ and this focus on bringing people together fosters a real sense of belonging. Many teams have quarterly away days as well as regular social gatherings and a packed calendar of in-person and virtual events, helping maintain an impressively close-knit culture that includes overseas teams. Approachability and a willingness to get stuck in makes it easy to reach out for support when you need it, while a flat structure and open door policy provides a safe space where voicing your opinion is encouraged.

You’ll undergo thorough training to grow your career


With a dedicated training and development team, Jet2 is committed to enabling all colleagues to develop their skillset and grow their careers. This investment in training sees every tech employee receive ample opportunity and support so that they can pursue learning-based activities, or obtain certifications and qualifications. On top of in-person training and e-learning, Jet2 provides access to Pluralsight for those colleagues wanting to stay ahead of the curve with the latest technologies and frameworks.

You’ll work with a wide variety of products and tech


Jet2 provides a great environment for tech lovers, so be prepared to get stuck in! Everything you get your hands on from a development or engineering perspective belongs to the company. What’s more, you’ll be working closely with a wide range of leading products, from internal systems to public-facing sites, everything built with the customer in mind. From working on legacy code to experimenting with new and exciting tech stacks, the work is varied, challenging and genuinely interesting – no two days are the same.

You’ll want to stay there for years


One of the most remarkable things about Jet2 is its staff retention. Fostering talent leads to long, happy careers, and that’s exactly what you can expect. Many team members have worked at the company for over 10 years, and there are plenty of colleagues who have been a part of the team since the launch of the first leisure flight with Jet2.com back in 2003. With plenty of scope for moving sideways and upwards and no one route into the company, there’s ample opportunity to find your true passion and talent, with Jet2 helping to find space to fit your aspirations.
