Job overview

Our Engineers focus on the assets that form the foundation of our transport network's building infrastructure.

With our line upgrades, renewals, enhancements, and improvement programmes, we provide our customers with a bright, clean, functional, and welcoming environment that is safe and accessible to all.

"My apprenticeship with TfL has gotten me closer to achieving my dreams. I feel like I've gotten a head-start on life."

What you'll be doing

You'll cover the design, installation, commissioning and maintenance of Electrical & Mechanical (E&M) assets serving buildings of different types within the TfL infrastructure.

E&M assets include:

  • Lighting
  • Low voltage
  • Lightning protection
  • Domestic water
  • Gas
  • Heating
  • Air conditioning
  • Ventilation sub-assets

These assets are located within a range of places such as:

  • Tube and rail stations
  • Railway line side equipment rooms
  • Railway depots
  • Control centres/rooms

Road lighting infrastructure and road tunnels are essential to the operation of the TfL tube, rail & road infrastructure.

Where this career can take you

On successful completion of this scheme, you could move into a Band 2 Engineer position in one of our E&M sub-teams.

From here, you could have the opportunity to continue developing into one of our resident technical discipline experts, an experienced Senior Project Engineer or even a Senior Manager.

The current Director of Engineering and the Major Projects Director for TfL both started their careers as technician apprentices.

That demonstrates that our apprentices can aspire to senior management positions or anything else in between.

The qualification you will earn is accredited by the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE).
