General Management Degree

(BA Hons) Management and Business

Job overview

At TfL, the things we do have a huge impact on Londoners and the visitors to our city. General Management is at the heart of everything we do and every decision we make.

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.

We never stop looking for ways to improve the service we provide to our customers. Whether that's giving frontline staff the tools and technology they need to give real-time travel information or making the transport network more accessible to all.

It's our managers who define the vision, set the strategy, and lead the way to delivering the improvements London needs. This scheme will be your gateway to a position of real seniority, and the variety of experiences to understand the area of the business that inspires you the most.

"Before TfL, I was a medical student and after med school I wasn't quite sure what I wanted to do. When I saw this scheme, what attracted me was that I could try a variety of things to find out what I like." — Rayhan Haque, General Management apprentice

What you'll be doing

You'll gain experience across a range of different projects from London Underground, Surface Transport and buses, to pedestrian and river boat services, providing opportunities for challenges, growth and development.

You could find yourself working behind a desk gathering and analysing data that will guide multi-million pound investment decisions. Or benchmarking TfL against other metros and bus operators from around the world, to see what we can learn from them and do better here.

Or you could be on the frontline, engaging with key business sponsors such as MPs or London Assembly Members, to explain our proposals and answer their concerns, while managing a team of staff and thousands of customers every day.

What you'll need

  • A minimum of 2 GCSE's Grade A* - C or Grade 4 and above including Maths and English language
  • Plus 3 A-Levels in any subject at grade A* - C or equivalent
  • You must be 18 years of age before September 2022 to be eligible for this scheme

Where this career can take you

Upon successful completion of this scheme, you could roll-off as a Customer Service Manager or an Assistant Business Strategy Planner, which could lead to further career development opportunities such as Trains Operation Manager or Business Strategy Manager.

On completion of the scheme, you'll get a Level 6 Chartership as a Charted Manager.

How long: 4 years

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