Five lucky university graduates will be selected for Transport for Wales’ first-ever scheme for coming and working for them for two years. However, applications will close on February 1st.

Anyone joining will get to participate in engineering, risk analysis, and transport planning, on projects such as the South Wales Metro. They will follow a program of vocational work, educational learning, and the opportunity to study for professional qualifications.

James Price, Transport for Wales Chief Executive, said: “I’m delighted we’ve launched our first ever graduate scheme and I encourage anyone who’ll have graduated by September 2021 to consider applying.”

“(Transport for Wales) is a young, growing organisation with bold plans to transform transport in Wales, so this is a unique and exciting time to join the TfW team. While our graduates are learning new skills and gaining some great experience, they’ll also see the impact of their work in their communities.”
