About you

You will be passionate about the creation of real-world technology and the benefits it brings for society, the economy and environmental sustainability. Those with degrees in engineering or STEM subjects will be particularly suited to this graduate programme, but we are open to a range of applications so long as you have a genuine passion to build a career working with technology. A background in rail is not needed, but an interest in making transport better for the customer is great!

You will be supported throughout the program to help you get up to speed with the product and rail domain understanding, as well as being assigned a mentor and buddy to help you along the way!

As a Graduate Engineering Project Manager within our Control Systems division you will:
• Get involved with day-to-day project delivery with the goal of managing a portfolio of projects to time, cost and quality
• Take on responsibility for client relationships

We are looking for you to be:
• Passionate about technology and creating resilient, high quality, IT systems
• Driven about what you want from a career with the flexibility to be the best you can
• Assured and approachable, able to build relationships and collaborate effectively
• Highly organised, resilient, and able to manage your workload and commitments
• Able to manage tasks and problems independently
• A technical problem solver with the ability to troubleshoot - simplifying more complex problems into simple questions to be answered

• Willing to challenge how things are currently done - not just accept things at face value/think beyond current practices
• A quick learner
• Attention to detail oriented
• Able to convey complex technical topics to non-technical people
