At Arriva we want to find the very best people to help us transform our business. As an Arriva Graduate, you will complete an 18-month programme which is designed to attract and develop future leaders. During the programme, you will have the chance to carry out placements in different business areas and work alongside experienced leaders, giving you a unique insight into our business and the skills you need to excel within it.

Our vast international business offers many opportunities across several locations and it is possible that one of these placements could be based in one of the 14 European countries that Arriva operates in. You will attend a set of international graduate events and training modules where you will gain knowledge about Arriva’s operations, strategy and business model and where you will meet Arriva’s senior managers and Graduates from other countries. As well as your main assignments, you will be working on a project together with other Arriva Graduates. You will be carefully supported by your mentor and will become part of an international Graduate network.

Working in the Commercial & Marketing team you will not only help to ensure that we operate commercially, making sure we are reviewing the networks, bus times and routes ensuring we are meeting the needs of the customers and achieving passenger numbers and revenue but also be involved in the marketing side of the business.

The type of projects, tasks and responsibilities that you will take on during the programme are in the range of:
• Marketing – Traditional routes of Campaign management, CRM and Advertising

After successfully completing the Graduate Programme we will work with you to find a suitable role in our business.
