Transport for London doesn’t believe that a career gap should be a barrier to ongoing development and progression. They value the skills and experience you have developed during your career break and their Smart Sourcing programme will support you back into work at the right level. You’ll have the opportunity to refresh your technical skills and continuing professional development, while working on exciting projects that benefit people and communities across London.

Why TfL?

Millions of people rely on our network. For business. For leisure. For living. Right now, we’re delivering one of the world’s largest programmes of transport capital investment. You’ll bring the insights, proactive attitude and financial expertise to make it all possible. Keeping London’s growing population on the move takes billions of pounds – and a wealth of expertise, like yours.

It’s not just about trains and buses: TfL’s Property Development teams are shaping the future of London. As well as being responsible for 30 million journeys a day, they’re also one of London’s largest land owners. TfL owns around 5,700 acres of land across London including depots, and land above and around Tube stations. They have several sites ready for development over the next decade and working with the development sector, their plans will help to build the homes and communities London needs.

TfL reinvests all their income to run and improve their customer services. Increasingly, they are funded by commercial income from sponsorship, advertising, and real estate. From finding imaginative uses for disused space in stations, to innovative advertising partnerships or building new homes for Londoners, their Commercial Development team play a key role in generating the income that keeps London moving, working, and growing.
