We’re the biggest train operating company in the UK. Our people choose to work here because of what we can offer you and your career. We’re investing in our people, ensuring that they have market leading skills. We’re working closely with our communities to ensure that we’re having a positive impact on the world around us. We run trains every day of the year and we need a great team to make that happen.
Our four-year engineering apprenticeship is a great chance to learn on the job, earning a real salary while you do. You’ll gain a nationally recognised qualification with great career prospects.
In the depot, you’ll learn a wide range of mechanical, electrical and electronic skills. You’ll learn fault-finding, testing, maintenance and repair, all backed-up by college study to make sure that everything makes sense.
You’ll join a group of apprentices starting at the same time and have their support throughout your apprenticeship. Your dedicated apprenticeship manager (and the rest of the engineering team) are supportive and friendly. The team work closely together, making sure that everyone is getting the most from their journey. Have a look at what some of our existing apprentices have to say about their apprenticeships at GTR:
