Underground Signal Engineering Technician Apprenticeship.
What will I be doing?
Apprentices will have the opportunity to learn from experienced and qualified staff through various placements across the organisation so as to gain a broad spectrum of knowledge through a hands-on approach to learning.
London Underground’s network covers a vast area from zones 1-9 and 11 different lines. With many interchanges and pressure on our network to be constantly “on”, ensuring our lines are running safely and to capacity is the responsibility of our signalling engineers.
Advancements in technology are making this role increasingly interesting. You’ll be working on one of the world’s oldest transport networks rolling out the most advanced technology, a truly unique opportunity. You may choose to specialise in design, construction or maintenance as your careers progresses. What do we look for?
Our talented apprentices form a vital part of that vision, so it’s important that we find the best people to help us do this. We’re looking for people who are;
• Analytical and logical thinkers
• Continuing learners
Creative and innovative
As a member of the team, we’ll give you responsibility and the opportunity to add value.If you’re excited by inspiring and influencing the future of London then this is the career path for you.
Where can this career take me?
This apprenticeship is just the start of your career, the roles and opportunities available to you are endless. Many of our apprentices progress after a number of years into managerial positions.Alternatively, you may want to remain as a hands-on engineer, growing in knowledge and experience and passing on your skills to the next generation of Apprentices.
The current Director of Engineering and Managing Director for London Underground for TfL both started as technician apprentices so it can be seen that the apprentices can aspire eventually to senior management positions.
