Crossrail announces graduate scheme

Crossrail has announced a graduate scheme aimed at getting young people into the industry and addressing future skills shortages.

The two year scheme will take eight graduates a year for the next four years starting in 2013. Each graduate will gain training in a project, commercial, finance or people management role. They will also be given practical training at the Crossrail sponsored Tunnelling and Underground Construction Academy in Ilford.

Graduates will be recruited from courses in tunnelling, engineering, information technology, business management and administration. They will work towards a professional chartered status in their field at the end of the scheme.

Crossrail’s total funding envelope for delivery is £14.8bn. It will pass through 37 stations and run 118km. The project is committed to delivering 400 apprenticeships through its supply chain over its lifetime.
