It takes more than 28,000 people to keep London moving, so we need a variety of roles to make sure that happens. We offer opportunities for a range of disciplines, covering everything from graduate schemes to summer placements for penultimate year students.

All our schemes involve working on projects and you'll be given responsibilities from the start. Whatever scheme you choose to apply for, you'll gain hands-on experience and learn from other talented people as you go.

Your journey matters

Our graduate and placement opportunities require different skillsets and strengths. Some of the strengths may have been developed through your studies at university, others may come from the work experience you've had and some you'll have developed instinctively. They're the ones we're really interested in.

It's up to you to decide where you take your career, but we'll provide the exposure, support and development to help you on your journey.

Whatever journey you're looking to pursue, discover how we can help you embrace your strengths and passions and make an impact in your own way.


Here at TfL, we have one set of behaviours which link to the four areas which lie at the heart of everything we do: our people, our customers and users, our delivery and value for money.

These behaviours influence our work, our development our progress and our success, so it's important for you to understand what these behaviours are and why you need to be able to demonstrate them.
