Project planners are instrumental in keeping the projects and programmes that are improving London’s transport system ‘on track’.

Our Project planners are responsible for provision of accurate & meaningful planning information to the management team and key stakeholders. So, as a planner you’ll be reporting and monitoring progress of the project, forecasting future completion dates, and recommending the most efficient sequencing of the project to achieve key cost and time targets. You’ll also review and interrogate plans from TfL’s contractors to ensure they are delivering value for money.

You'll begin a comprehensive, structured training programme designed to introduce you to a variety of areas and give your career a real kick start. You’ll be learning from our experts to gain experience on capital investment projects, asset maintenance and operations. You’ll be working within teams that are directly managing the supply chain to deliver work that is reliable, timely and cost-effective.
