TransPennine Express (TPE) recognise the importance of having young people join the business from a diverse environment which represents the communities they serve.
“We have previously selected fourteen apprentices who are currently undertaking a two-year apprenticeship benefitting from learning the skills and knowledge needed to follow a career in rail. The apprentices are experiencing several different sections within TPE, including Major Projects, Service Planning, Customer Experience and Human Resources. As part of the training, each apprentice is also working towards a professional qualification, as well as the Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award.”
“We are committed to connecting and reflecting the diverse communities we serve across the north of England and Scotland. Our values are central to this, especially being ‘supportive of each other’ and as an inclusive employer we value individuals’ contributions, regardless of their age, gender, race, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, social background, religion, or belief.”
“If you know any young people that are interested in a career in the rail industry, let them know that they can register their interest in a TPE apprenticeship via the Early Careers Apprenticeships Talent Registration Page on the FirstGroup website. When vacancies become available, we will alert those that have registered and signpost them to the live vacancies through external promotions on social media campaigns.”
