Arriva London’s Management Graduate programme a great success for Ayieshah Haziri
Arriva graduates go places. Our fast-track schemes in General and Engineering Management are available within Arriva London, our UK Bus division, UK Trains as well as in mainland Europe.
To run a company the size of ours, we need excellent managers and leaders within our businesses. As our operations expand, we are keen to develop graduates within our operating businesses who can help us deliver operational excellence for our customers.
The graduate programme is divided into two streams:
General Management Programme
And the more technically-led Engineering Management Programme
In both cases, the aim is the same: to create a pipeline of managers who understand our operational issues, recognise our business needs and know what it takes to keep us successful.
One of our recent graduates is Ayieshah Haziri who joined the scheme just over a year ago and is just completing her final placement before joining the company on a permanent basis. She tells us:
“Arriva’s a great place to work, everyone’s so friendly and makes you feel part of the team. It’s also a really exciting time to join Arriva. Times are changing and Arriva’s changing with those times, so as a young graduate now is definitely the time to apply.”
Watch the video to see more of her story, and find out what she feels are some of the benefits of working through the Arriva London Graduate programme.

Last summer, we were delighted to be awarded the contract from TfL to operate route W4 running from Oakthorpe Park Estate to Tottenham Ferry Lane estate, operating from Wood Green garage.
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.
