The scheme

It takes more than 28,000 people to keep London moving. So, as you might imagine, it takes almost as many different roles too.

Whatever your area of interest or expertise, we've a graduate scheme to suit. As well as all the support you need to build a successful career in your chosen field.

Every role within TfL is vital. So, we'll help you build up your knowledge and confidence so that you're ready to take on yours.

Initially you'll work on a range of placements, lasting up to six months each. They've been designed to equip you with the skills you'll need to understand your business area. After that, you'll move into your first role within TfL. We'll make sure that your development plan is tailored to your needs, as well as the requirements of your scheme.

You can be rest assured that our programme offers plenty of variety too. You'll enjoy a broad view of our organisation and the chance to meet different people across the business. We can only accept one application per year, so please think carefully about which scheme is right for you. Find out more about each scheme.
