What will I be doing?


As a graduate, your three year development programme will be made up of up to six placement rotations. Our aim is to equip you with the range of skills and experience you need for your successful career. We also understand that everyone’s career is different, so every graduate’s journey is unique.


As a graduate, your work will vary from placement to placement however for all of them you’ll have the opportunity to make an impact on the millions of journeys customers make across London each day. You may find yourself working on maintaining and improving the structures and earthworks of London Underground. You might be working on site on the delivery of step-free access schemes to improve accessibility to the network. You could be given the chance to complete a placement on a major project such as the Silvertown tunnel river crossing. All these activities will directly make a positive improvement to many Londoners’ daily lives.


What do we look for?


Everything we do as an organisation is to ensure that our evolving city remains future-proof for millions of Londoners. Our talented graduates form a vital part of that vision, so it’s important that we find the best people to help us do this. We’re looking for people who are;

Where can this career take me?


A career with us can be very varied with opportunities across the whole of engineering for you to enjoy.


Typically, within five to eight years, you will be eligible for Chartered status. This could open up opportunities to be a Senior Engineer, Project Engineer or Construction Engineer responsible for making key technical decisions. After a further few years, you could be a Team Leader or Project Technical Lead, managing your own team and making strategic decisions on design and processes.



What training and support will you get?


Whilst on the scheme, we'll support your technical development through a wide range of on-the-job practical experiences and placements.
