Who are we?
We are a truly unique organisation, providing the travel system and infrastructure upon which London relies. Delivering almost the entire London travel network, we manage everything from the London Underground and London Buses, to London Riverboat Services, London Trams and 580km of the Capital’s roads. But we don’t just get people from A to B. The services we supply ensure the economic and social wellbeing of one of the world’s greatest cities. In fact, London relies heavily on the infrastructure and transport network that we provide.
Building for the future...
We’re not just thinking about today though. We’re also planning for tomorrow – building a transport network fit for a 21st century city. We played a vital role in preparing London for the Olympic Games, and in creating a more sustainable future for the Capital. To ensure we were able to do this, we secured a record £40bn settlement over ten years. This money will be used to improve and expand the network, and invested in some of the most exciting projects the Capital has ever seen.
Our Student Placements
There's no substitute for experience - and at Transport for London (TfL) we'll give you the opportunity to get that, even before you've graduated. With our student placements, you can experience work and life at TfL, and get real insight into our business and culture.
This year we’re offering year long student placements in the areas of Civil Engineering, Quantity Surveying, Project Management, Information Management and Transport Planning. In all of these areas we’ll be giving you real responsibility and getting you to work on real projects. You’ll be challenged and stretched that’s for sure, but we’ll be there to support you every step of the way. You'll need to be studying in a sandwich degree course, currently in your second year of study and looking for a Year in Industry placement.
