Description

What will I be doing?


As an apprentice, your 3-year development programme will be made up of up to numerous different placement rotations across the London Underground Network. Our aim is to equip you with the range of skills and experience you need for your successful career. We also understand that everyone’s career is different, so every apprentice’s journey is unique.


As a Lift & Escalator apprentice you will gain skills and experience across various areas on the London Underground network. You will learn to service, maintain, and repair all of our escalator or lift assets whilst the public sleep, as well as join the heavy refurbishment team and inspectors. Your placement plan will be issued and managed by your Apprenticeship Development Manager where you will be assured the maximum exposure needed to attain your knowledge and competence.


The apprenticeship scheme will involve working flexible hours to include early, late, night and weekend shifts.
