We're looking for people who are
- Motivated to add value

What you'll be doing
Our Procurement and Supply Chain (P&SC) team is responsible for buying, obtaining and procuring every essential component that TfL needs to function as a business.
This includes everything from our trains and track, to the nuts and bolts that hold it together and the people that build it.
You'll learn how to buy strategically, ensuring money is spent in the most cost effective and efficient ways, for the best price and the highest quality.
You'll be working across a diverse range of projects that make up the delivery of the Mayor's Transport Strategy.
Your two-year development programme will consist of up to five placement rotations as a graduate.
We encourage you to gain well-rounded experience across all the P&SC departments. You'll have the support and guidance from your sponsor and scheme leader, who will help you in identifying the most suitable placements for you as an individual.
Where this career can take you
At the end of your scheme, you'll have achieved a CIPS Level 5 Advanced Diploma in Procurement and Supply.
You could roll-off into an Assistant Commercial Manager role in your desired part of the Commercial business area.
TfL will continue to fund your sponsorship for an extra final year to complete the CIPS Level 6. So you can become a Member of the Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply (MCIPS).
In five years, you can expect to have a well-established career as a Commercial Manager, with a succession plan to Senior or Lead Commercial Manager.
