Job overview

Our Engineers focus on the assets that form the foundation of our transport network's building infrastructure.

With our line upgrades, renewals, enhancements, and improvement programmes, we provide our customers with a bright, clean, functional, and welcoming environment that is safe and accessible to all.

TfL Make the next move

London is one of the world’s most exciting and vibrant cities. We work hard to ensure millions of people can travel safely and reliably. With major investment in our transport system and the infrastructure that supports it, we’re doing everything we can to keep our city moving, working and growing.

"My apprenticeship with TfL has gotten me closer to achieving my dreams. I feel like I've gotten a head-start on life." - Connor Kavanagh, Building Services Apprentice

What you'll be doing

You'll cover the design, installation, commissioning and maintenance of Electrical & Mechanical (E&M) assets serving buildings of different types within the TfL infrastructure.

E&M assets include:

Lighting, Low voltage, Lightning protection, Domestic water, Gas, Heating, Air conditioning and Ventilation sub-assets.

These assets are located within a range of places such as:

  • Tube and rail stations
  • Railway line side equipment rooms
  • Railway depots
  • Control centres/rooms
  • Road lighting infrastructure and road tunnels are essential to the operation of the TfL tube, rail & road infrastructure.

What you'll need

  • A minimum of 5 GCSE's Grade A* - C or Grade 4 and above including Maths and English language
  • Plus, a minimum of three A levels at A* - C including Maths and Physics/Chemistry
  • You must be 18 years of age by September 2022 to be eligible for this scheme

Where this career can take you

On successful completion of this scheme, you could move into a Band 2 Engineer position in one of our E&M sub-teams.

From here, you could have the opportunity to continue developing into one of our resident technical discipline experts, an experienced Senior Project Engineer or even a Senior Manager.

The current Director of Engineering and the Major Projects Director for TfL both started their careers as technician apprentices. That demonstrates that our apprentices can aspire to senior management positions or anything else in between.

The qualification you will earn is accredited by the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE).

How long: Approximately 5.5 years

Where: London based hybrid working. Anticipated 1 to 2 days on average in the office- subject to working patterns and business requirements.

We've signed the Gradcracker feedback pledge.
