FirstGroup is the world's leading ground passenger transport company, with around 110,000 employees throughout the UK and North America and revenues of over £6 billion a year. We are the largest bus operator in the UK with a fleet of 8,500 buses and the UK’s largest rail operator, carrying over 280 million passengers a year.
Because we're committed to providing customers with safe, high-quality service every day, we’re committed to the people who provide it. Our graduates are seen as our managers of the future. We look carefully for individuals who thrive on rolling up their sleeves and accelerating their learning with early responsibility, breathtaking learning curves and the chance to take ownership. This is a place where you aren't sidelined for your mistakes, but you learn from them; where your role changes every day and where you develop the ability to deal with all kinds of people above and beyond your skills.
Whichever scheme you choose, you can be confident that you will be fully supported throughout the two year programme and in to a management role where you will continue to learn, develop and grow.
Everything you do will be underpinned by a comprehensive and on-going mentoring and coaching process, everyone here wants you to learn and we use buddies and mentors to ensure that happens. But the most important person driving your success is you.
Specifically, we look for graduates with at least a 2:2 degree. But the right people will have so much more to offer. Like the flexibility to travel around the UK with a variety of placements; plenty of energy and creativity; a clear focus on providing the excellent service our customers have come to expect. More than that, you're a real people person skilled in managing a team of employees, as well as working with a diverse breadth of colleagues.
We have graduate opportunities available in Operations, Sales and Marketing and Engineering.
