You may not think of us as a data and information business but we're responsible for millions of daily journeys which can be used for data analysis. We use this data to inform our decisions about the transport development, and the products and services we deliver for our customers. With London's rapid population growth and pressure to deliver more with less resource, this work has never been more important. As a result, we're looking for apprentices to help us build new software tools so that we can analyse our data.
Five GCSEs, grade A*- C or certified equivalent, including maths and English language. You must be 18 by 1 September 2016.

Potential candidates should also be motivated to gain as much as they can from their placements within our development teams.
Once your apprenticeship starts, you'll also be able to work towards:
