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.


A true technical expert in your field, you will develop and implement complex engineering solutions safely, and within cost limitations. Day-to-day, you will provide technical guidance and advice in your position as a trusted source of engineering expertise for everyone, including our Heads of Engineering Delivery. 


You will be a technical expert in all things Railway Rolling Stock related, with a solid commercial awareness of developments in Rolling Stock products, process’s and assurance best practices. You will have proven experience of implementing a risk based engineering approach through the full lifecycle, from initial specification, to design, through installation and testing, right through to decommissioning or disposal. You will represent TfL on all things relating to Railway Rolling Stock, and will advise and guide both internally and externally as a subject matter expert in this field. We are particularly interested in engineers with experience in railway braking systems, electrical systems or Tramway vehicles.


The more teams and projects you’ve led, the better. It’s also equally 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 a Senior Engineer at TfL.
