– Jawad, Engineering and Technology Graduate


How long: 2 years
Where: London
Salary: £27,000

What you’ll need:
Candidates must already hold or be on track to achieve a minimum of 2:2 Batchelor’s or Master’s degree in electrical, electronic, systems or mechatronic engineering or a closely related subject accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET).


We’re looking for people who are:

  • An inquisitive mind
  • A creative approach to problem-solving
  • A curiosity to understand the root cause of a problem, developing solutions, whilst still striving for ways to improve and refine

What will I be doing?

As a graduate, your two year development programme will be made up of up to eight placements, each typically lasting three months.

The Electrical Engineering stream covers all aspects of the electrical assets that keep London’s transport system moving.  Your placements could include design of rolling stock upgrades, specification of electrical systems for stations, testing and commissioning for a new signalling system upgrade, delivering power systems for a railway extension, or assuring the safety of new electrical installations for traffic control systems.

Where can this career take me?

Upon completing the scheme we would expect you to progress into one of our functional engineering teams, aligned to a specific engineering discipline or specialist area.

Over time, we would expect you to be taking on more responsible assignments, leading engineering teams and liaising with internal and external stakeholders to deliver complex projects. This experience in turn will facilitate your application for Chartered Engineer status. Graduates can go on to undertake engineering management roles on multi-discipline projects of national importance, directly improving the experience of the travelling public and transforming how London moves.
