Go Ahead is an excellent company to work for. As a FTSE 250 with multiple operating companies there is great exposure throughout both rail and bus operating companies. Throughout my time I have formed good relationships with commercial leads across Group but also senior stakeholders in GTR. In terms of support there is multiple networks to reach out to if there are any issues and those put in place for myself have always been very supportive. The scheme itself has been going for a few years so there is always an older graduate there to help if needed.
It is an 18-month scheme which has three rotations over this time. The first is station management where I worked at two London terminals to run operations and people management. My current placement is crew management is in Ashford International where I manage the team of our on-board staff across the network. Lastly, I will work in a project related role.
