Together we move - Bombardier Transportation

Bombardier Transportation is a global mobility solution provider leading the way with the rail industry’s broadest portfolio. It covers the full spectrum of solutions, ranging from trains to sub-systems and signalling to complete turnkey transport systems, e-mobility technology and data-driven maintenance services.

Your tasks:

Maintenance is vital to the smooth running of the UK’s rail operations. Working alongside our customers, Bombardier’s Service Execution teams have forged a market-leading position in the important area of train life-care and support.

Working in partnership with our customers, train operators and asset owners, we are responsible for the maintenance and safe delivery of trains into service on a daily basis. Operating from our Fleet Maintenance Depots, we can provide total fleet maintenance and take responsibility for all customer requirements fulfilling high standards of availability and reliability. Our work enables thousands of passengers to safely arrive to their destination every day, all over the UK.

We are looking for individuals to join our Operations Management and Engineering teams in London. You will rotate around our Depots (East Ham, Ilford, New Cross Gate, Old Oak Common, Willesden, Seven Kings). You will complete a two-year intensive development programme whilst providing a tangible contribution to the success of the team. You will undertake a series of rotations around the company gaining an understanding of the business and the service operation lifecycle. Within a climate of innovation that yields value-based solutions, you will also support solutions to meet the customer requirements as part of the safety case and train presentation, support the identification and delivery of reliability improvements.

If you were to join us on the Operations management scheme, days can be incredibly varied. From taking part in key production meetings on depot with suppliers and customers, to getting out on the shop floor and working with the production teams to service one of our trains or to improve the processes we use to do so. Health and Safety is a crucial part of Operations Management and the scheme will teach you to embody our Safety-First Culture which exists across all Bombardier Sites – our priority is to keep all our staff safe. You will work collaboratively on many tasks with Customers, Suppliers, Manufacturers, Contractors, and Staff from other Bombardier Sites from across the country and sometimes even across the World. Over the two years your rotations will take you around multiple depots and business areas, with countless opportunities to complete high-level objectives, which have a clear impact in the day-to-day running of the business and the big picture organisational goals.

As an Engineering graduate, you will be engaging with new technologies and building your technical knowledge from day one. Your engineering work streams will be fast paced and dynamic, making every day unique. During the two year programme you will have the opportunity to rotate around our core services engineering functions including Product Safety, Reliability and Performance. Your responsibilities will include leading failure investigations, interfacing with customers and suppliers, learning the train systems and supporting fault finding activities. In each placement you will be an integral member of the team, working towards real deadlines and driving continuous improvement.

On the job learning is complemented by a modular personal development programme in your given career route. Supported by a mentor you will work towards gaining a relevant professional qualification.

Together we move.
