Below, you’ll find the stories of graduates who have attended universities across London, before securing a job there and going on to achieve great things professionally.

Each works for an organisation that’s looking to hire graduates now – have a read and you could be following in their footsteps.



1. Tom – studied Civil Engineering at City University

Now a Signalling Design Development Interface Manager at Colas Rail




After studying Civil Engineering at City University, Tom had no doubt about staying in the capital, believing it would be the best place to advance his career.

“I always knew I wanted to work in London,” he reflects. “It's a vibrant city, with a wide range of opportunities to work in an ever-growing Engineering field.”

This led to him joining Colas Rail in 2011, where he embarked on a series of rotations to transform him into an expert in Railway Services. Fast-forward a few years and he’s finished the programme and progressed up the ranks to the position of Signalling Design Development Interface Manager - a role that involves looking after signalling nationally.

The European leader in railway is currently looking for grads with a 2:1 or above in an Engineering-related subject to join their Technical Programme. The two-year scheme will see you developing your skills and will help you on your way to becoming a Chartered Engineer.
