Follow The Right Track For You Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship

September 2019 sees the official launch of our Degree Apprenticeship programme; say hello to Track to Success.

With a real job from day one, contributing to the success of LNER our Degree Apprenticeship is a unique opportunity for you to work full time (paid, of course) while simultaneously studying towards a full Chartered Management Degree Apprenticeship. Now for the best part.......Your degree will be fully funded by us!

It’s safe to say that working full time and studying for a degree is not for the faint hearted, so we advise you now that only truly ambitious, determined and hard working individuals need read on...

What does the programme involve?

The four-year programme offers you the chance to combine university studies with practical experience in the Rail Industry. By the end of the Apprenticeship, you'll have well-developed management skills that will set you up for a rewarding career with us.

You'll be combining studying whilst working in a number of placements in a variety of our business areas, across our route. This could vary from Customer Experience, Finance or Human Resources to Marketing or Safety & Operations! Rest assured wherever you are in the business, you’ll be tasked with some real-life business critical projects to truly get your teeth stuck into.

Do you have what it takes to join our team?

We're looking for ambitious and innovative candidates who have a genuine interest in developing a career in the Rail Industry. Studying for a degree while holding down a job in a fast-moving business like ours can be demanding and challenging. But the rewards will be huge. That's why we're looking for high quality people with real potential who can match our commitment and ambition.

If you’re joining us straight from school or college, you’ll need between 96-112 UCAS points to be eligible for the programme. If it’s been a few (or more than a few, we don’t mind!) years since you finished school and you’ve had some real-world work experience, we’ll look at this instead of your UCAS points.

For those who have already been lucky enough to achieve a degree in a business-related subject, unfortunately you are not eligible to apply. Don’t let this put you off, take a look at our website, where you’ll find a host of alternative opportunities.

Interested.......Applications will open Spring 2019. In the meantime, if you have any questions email futuretalentteam@lner.co.uk
