A consortium of five world-class companies (Atkins, Balfour Beatty, Bombardier Transportation, EDF Energy and Thames Water), Metronet is investing a staggering £17 billion over 30 years, to renew the Tube.
Under a public-private partnership contract with London Underground, Metronet is providing new trains, track and signalling; modernising and refurbishing some 150 stations; and upgrading embankments, bridges and other structures.
This massive programme offers engineering graduates a unique opportunity. Graduates will experience hands-on engineering challenges involving trains, stations, signals, track, tunnels and bridges on nine of the 12 Tube lines.
COMITTMENT TO PROFESSIONALISM
Metronet is also charged with maintaining its share of the network, meeting ever-more demanding levels of customer service for London Underground and the 3M passengers who use it every day .
The size of this undertaking underlines the commitment and professionalism expected of engineers and graduate engineers alike. For a graduate, the opportunities to flourish are incomparable. Once on board, you can expect an annual starting salary of around £25,000.
Graduate engineers are plugged into professionally accredited training schemes and given the support of both a mentor and a professional sponsor from within the organisation (both experienced engineers).
Each graduate in civil engineering is steered through a three-year series of placements, courses, forums and seminars, which are collectively designed to build on their first engineering degree. It allows dedicated young professionals to hit the ground running with their careers, in turn encouraging quick progress towards chartered engineer status.
