Position Type - Full Time
Engineer - (Lifts and Escalators)
Location: Edgware Road

Contract type: TfL

Transport for London (TfL) Engineers are always looking forward. Join us in one of our Central Engineering, Transport System Engineering or Infrastructure Engineering teams and, as well as maintaining legacy assets, you’ll deliver new systems and solutions. There’s more to it than tubes, roads, buildings and bridges. This is about connecting communities and creating opportunities, so we’re ready for the 21st century and beyond.
Day-to-day, your focus will be on delivering designs, drawings, information, calculations and enhancements that keep vital, innovative and big-budget projects moving. You’ll make sure assets are safe, working and compliant; develop your own solutions; and be a trusted source of engineering advice for everyone, including our Heads of Engineering Delivery.
Applicable knowledge and experience within Lift and Escalator Systems, although desirable, is not essential for this role. The work within the team is extremely broad and encompasses core mechanical and electrical skills (including control systems) as well as project engineering, which is a key area and skillset. Associated knowledge and skills that can be transferred into the team are most welcome and will be equally considered. It is appreciated that L&E is a niche community, so development and support will be available to mould your core skills into the Lift and Escalator discipline.


The more teams you’ve led, the better. But it’s important you bring a passion for the TfL Vision and strategy too. That’s because, wherever you join us, you’ll explore work of unparalleled scale, scope and variety across a unique range of projects, as you build your career and expertise. So come and bring on tomorrow, as an Engineer at TfL.
We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age or disability status.

Please apply using your most recent CV and Cover Letter. We encourage you to apply for the position that is most relevant to your existing skills, knowledge and experience as shortlisting is carried out on the basis of how well you meet the criteria for the role.
