What you'll be doing

This scheme offers a mix of strategic, engineering and operational placements. This will give you a broad grounding in engineering and a good understanding of what drives our business and how we deliver.

You'll be working alongside:

  • specialist engineers working across the whole lifecycle of a wide variety of systems
  • safety, quality and environmental professionals
  • railway operational managers
  • transport planners
  • marketing and commercial experts
  • other TfL transport modes such as DLR or road traffic management

Throughout, you'll be supported by a scheme sponsor and a professional mentor - both chartered engineers. We'll also team you up with informal 'buddies' who have similar backgrounds, interests and responsibilities to you.

The Learning & Development team will also be on hand to provide all you need to create an action plan that meets your unique technical and professional interests, and ultimately helps you to achieve incorporated or chartered status.

At the end of two years on the scheme you will be offered a role that matches your skills and experience to our business needs.

Training & development

The scheme paves the way for you to achieve eventual incorporated or chartered engineer status with the IET, or the Institution of Railway Signal Engineers (IRSE).
