Job overview

TfL’s Professional Services teams focus on the employees at the heart of the business. Their world-leading transport modelling teams play a crucial role in TfL’s evidence-based decision-making processes. You will have the opportunity to gain experience across their transport modelling and data teams, ranging from strategic London-wide topics to local area micro-simulation of individual person movements. You will learn about the data that is available at TfL, how it informs their models & analytical tools, how to use their models & analytical tools, the interactions between them and how the outputs are used by stakeholders across TfL and beyond.

What will I be doing?

As a graduate, your 2-year development programme will be made up of up to 4 placement rotations, including at least one in each of our three transport-modelling and data analysis teams. The aim is to equip you with the range of skills and experience you need for your successful career. TfL also understand that everyone’s career is different, so every graduate’s journey is unique. Here’s an idea of what yours could look like:

Placement 1 – Operational Modelling and Visualisation

You will use one or more of TfL’s industry-leading highway network models. You will prepare the models, informed by data, to ensure they are suitable for the assessment. You will then undertake the assessment, analyse the outputs and use our visualisation capabilities to present complex modelling analysis in a manner suitable for their varied stakeholders.

Placement 2 – Public Transport Service Planning

You will undertake modelling and analysis to inform decisions about public transport service changes. You will use one or more of the team’s station, train service or public transport network models. You will work with stakeholders to identify the appropriate scope of work and with technical experts to ensure the models are used accurately.

Placement 3 – Strategic Analysis

You will work with data and tools at a London-wide level informing key questions around environmental challenges and how London may change in different future scenarios. You will work with their strategic transport modelling suite, MoTiON, or maybe one of emerging innovative forecasting tools such as their agent-based model and land-use transport interaction model.

You are expected to complete each of the placements outlined above. There is scope to tailor each placement to your skills and interests due to the breadth of work in each team. You will be expected to learn the basics of transport modelling and understand that data that is available to TfL and how it is used. Your placements may become more specialised, for example, data science, modelling or analytics if your interests move in that direction.

What TfL offer

You will enjoy excellent benefits and scope to grow. Rewards vary according to the business area but mostly include:

  • Free travel on the TfL network for you and a nominee who lives in the same household
  • Final salary pension scheme
