Hi all,

Has anyone applied for the TFL grad roles?
I saw previous threads but none for this year, so hopefully I'm not duplicating.

I recently applied for the commercial procurement one. I did all the tests, haven't heard anything back yet, but fingers crossed.

I've applied for the commercial procurement role as well.
when did you start your application ? By all the tests do you include the video interview as well?
I got an email today inviting me to do a video interview.I'm planning to do some preparations during the week and do the interview this weekend.

It kinda sucks though as there's only 4 vacancies in this role and even less in the others.

LMAO Well, that's unfortunate, I don't think I've got the role then. I haven't done the video interview, I was hoping for the invite after the application closing date.
Where did you see the vacancy numbers?

Don't say that. They could be just getting round to your application.

I emailed them about vacancy numbers as I was undecided of whether to apply for finance or commercial and they told me commercial had 4 whilst finance had 2. Bearing in mind that more people tend to apply for finance roles I thought my best bet would be commercial.

I've applied for the engineering and technology scheme and have also reached the video interview stage. I gave my first video interview for another company yesterday. It was a lot tougher than I imagined so I'll spend some more time to prepare for this one.

I actually got the email inviting me to do the interview yesterday, so i'm preparing today and and aiming to do the interview tomorrow. 4 vacancies is quite a small cohort; the assessment centre will probably be a smaller group. Arguably, that could be a good thing though for the people that get there.

hm I'm a little concerned, most graduate scheme video interviews are about competencies, so i'll be sure to prepare some examples, but this one seems to focus on the motivations, which I always find a little more difficult to explain lol.

The video interview went well, it could have been worse.

Maybe get used to thinking fast, I felt a bit behind, or like I could think of better ways to phrase something after the question was answered. But other than that, it was pretty straight forward- like I said above competencies & motivations😁

Any tips for the interview? I've applied for Mechanical Engineering so we wont be in direct competition

What sort of questions are there? Are any of them technical/specific?

My AC is booked for 29/11 - The email says you can choose a date/time but when I got to the booking page that was the only slot available/left(?)

Hopefully TfL start sending out more and more invites this week - Let us know when you get your AC date
hahahha thanks for the wishful thinking !!

I too am waiting to hear back from last weeks email after passing the video interview. I’m not too sure it means we’re on a reserve list otherwise I think they would have said, instead I think it’s just another shortlisting stage to see who they’ll invite to assessment centre in December. Hopefully we will hear back by the start of this week.
