TfL and Crossrail welcome new graduates

140 new graduate trainees have joined TfL and Crossrail across engineering, project management, transport planning, commercial, information management, finance and marketing roles. 

Those working for TfL will spend up to three years as trainees on a wide range of projects, including reliability, accessibility and frontline customer service. 

Crossrail trainees will join a two-year programme to help build Europe’s largest construction project. 

London’s Transport Commissioner, Sir Peter Hendy CBE, said: “Our transport network is currently moving a record number of passengers each year, and to upgrade and improve the services we deliver, we need highly skilled staff. Our graduate trainees will have the opportunity to work on different projects across our organisation to give them a real sense of what it takes to support 27 million journeys every day. I started as a graduate trainee in 1975 so I know that we can offer a long and fulfilling career with world class training.” 

Crossrail’s chief executive, Andrew Wolstenholme said: “Crossrail will transform rail travel in London and the South East. This is a fantastic opportunity for graduates to join and play a key role in delivering Europe’s largest construction project. The scheme is a great chance for graduates to work alongside world class contractors, designers and engineers and gain invaluable experience as they begin their careers.”
