Job - General
Position Type - Full Time
Assistant Engineer (Business Engineering)


Transport for London (TfL) Engineers are always looking forward. Join us in one of our Central Engineering, Transport System Engineering or Infrastructure Engineering teams and, as well as maintaining legacy assets, you’ll deliver new systems and solutions. There’s more to it than tubes, roads, buildings and bridges. This is about connecting communities and creating opportunities, so we’re ready for the 21st century and beyond.


Day-to-day, you will provide technical analysis and diagnostics within your field of expertise, as well as assisting with the production of designs, drawings, calculations and ongoing continuous improvement of assets to ensure a reliable and safe experience for customers. One day you might be working on developing whole life cost models for newly developed assets, the next you might be directing suppliers on site for engineering technology development projects.


You will have a good understanding of providing multidisciplinary professional engineering support in projects, particularly in the early part of the lifecycle e.g. technical R&D, conception, specification, design, construction and testing/commissioning to meet business outcome requirements. There will be numerous opportunities for professional development through working for both TfL delivery businesses (e.g. LU, Surface etc) as well as with other TfL professional services (e.g. T&D, City Planning etc). Additionally, this role also brings unique opportunities to deliver against our externally funded portfolio (e.g. InnovateUK/RSSB) developing an exposure to a wide range of partners and clients including SMEs and academia.


It’s important you bring a passion for the TfL Vision and strategy too. That’s because, wherever you join us, you’ll explore work of unparalleled scale, scope and variety across a unique range of projects, as you build your career and expertise. So come and bring on tomorrow, as an Engineer at TfL.


We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age or disability status.
