Arriva London’s Women Engineers go for Guinness World Record
Next Tuesday the 23rd of June is ‘National Women in Engineering Day 2015’, and to help celebrate this, Arriva London will be sending two of their Engineers along to see if they can help create a Guinness World record on Horse Guards parade between 8.00 and 9.30.
The planned attempt at the Guinness world record is for ‘the most people performing a jumping high-five simultaneously’ and Arriva London’s Engineers Caroline Wilde and Brogan O’Brien will be joining in the fun, which is designed to 'high-five' the amazing achievements of women in engineering and technology, and showcase the exciting and hugely diverse roles they undertake.
Both Caroline and Brogan joined the Arriva London Engineering team from engineering roles in the British army. They currently hold engineering management roles within Arriva, Caroline is the Engineering manager of Arriva’s Clapton garage and Brogan the Assistant engineering Manager at Edmonton.
Both ladies are looking forward to being part of the event and hopefully becoming part of a new Guinness World record and another winning team.

As part of our commitment to developing our business, we invest heavily in training for all of our staff to offer the great customer experience. We also look at other ways in which we can develop our relationships with the communities we serve, and allow them the opportunity of learning about our processes and to meet some of the team.
Over the past few months we have been working with TfL, conducting Accessibility Awareness forums at our garages.
Doing the right thing, one of our four brand values, is what we have been doing for the last six years by encouraging all of our employees to give to their favourite charities through our Payroll Giving scheme - during this time, they have given more than £1,000,000 pounds to over 160 charities.
Going to school is something we all had to do, but going to school with a red London double-decker bus, and letting four classes from year one come on board to ask questions about the bus, is a privilege we experienced this week at Newbury Park Primary School in North East London.
Last June, Arriva London was delighted to have been re-awarded the TfL contract to run route W6 (Edmonton Green – Southgate Station) for a further five years, starting in January 2018 with brand new buses.
As the festive season approaches, we all look forward to the good-will of giving and receiving, and this was truly illustrated last week when members of our staff made a tour of London, on our open top bus, to meet representatives of some of their charities they give to through their Payroll Giving and celebrate #GivingTuesday.
