About the National Express Group Graduate Management Trainee Programme
After a comprehensive induction to introduce you to the business you will undertake a structured 12 month training programme which has been carefully designed to ensure you gain a detailed understanding of all the key areas of the bus or coach business and the career opportunities available in them.
Throughout your training you will have ongoing support from the HR Director, including regular review meetings, together with the guidance and expertise of a separate dedicated personal mentor. Our aim is to give you the tools, the encouragement and the help to succeed and make a real difference to our business.
At National Express you will not be just a number among a large group of trainees. We deliberately recruit a small number of graduates each year so that we can support you at every step, tailor the programme to your interests and needs, and work closely with you throughout your training and subsequent career.
Your programme will cover a wide range of business activities and functions including; operational management and leadership, marketing and commercial strategy, human resources, training and development, engineering, network planning, safety, finance, purchasing, payroll, technical support, revenue management and customer service.
A unique and very exciting part of our scheme is that, while your initial training will be based in the UK, you will also be part of a global graduate network with the opportunity to work in our international business units. In addition, you will be given the opportunity to obtain further qualifications, such as an MBA from a prestigious world-class university.
