About Go-Ahead

Go-Ahead is the leading provider of public transport in the UK bus and rail service sectors, delivering over one billion passenger journeys each year. Almost two million journeys take place per day on our bus network – as well as being London’s largest bus operator, we own eight regional UK bus companies. Currently a FTSE250 company employing 29,000 people across the country, we’re also expanding our international bus and rail portfolio. We are strong believers in local brands run by local management for local markets, and are looking for motivated graduates who will grow and develop into our future operations managers.

If you are a hard working, intelligent and ambitious student or graduate looking for a challenging graduate programme starting in September 2019 then Go-Ahead could be a great fit for you. Designed to quickly accelerate your development and career to a specific senior management role, the Go-Ahead graduate programme will give you responsibility for people, customers, reputation, safety, revenue and assets. Within two years we expect you to be accelerated into key management roles; highly qualified/certified, on track to be earning £35,000 to £40,000pa, managing hundreds of people and millions of pounds of budget and assets. With our Gold Award from Investors in People (IIP), we’re well-equipped to support you on your own journey whilst you support our millions of customers with theirs.

If that is the kind of opportunity you are looking for, and you are ready to roll your sleeves up and work hard for it, then you are exactly the kind of person we are looking for. We have three different graduate streams; Bus Management, Rail Management and Engineering, and a total of 15 roles available across the UK including London, Oxford, Newcastle, Brighton and more, all commencing in September 2019.
