Our programme

The Arriva Graduate Programme is an 18 month programme developed in order to attract and develop young talent.

Together we are Arriva

Arriva is a business run by people for people, delivering high quality services to our customers.

During the programme, you will work within different business areas. Most likely, one of these assignments will be located in one of the other 13 European countries that Arriva operates in. You will attend a set of graduate events and training modules where you will gain knowledge about Arriva’s operations, strategy and business model and where you will meet Arriva’s senior managers and Graduates from other countries. In addition to your main assignments, you will be working on an international project together with other Arriva Graduates. You will be supported by a mentor throughout the programme and become part of an international Graduate network.

After the Graduate Programme we will continue to support your development and our expectation is to offer you a prominent position within the business after you graduate. Good performance will expose the great growth opportunities that Arriva can offer you.
