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 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.
Arriva London scooped three awards at the National Payroll Giving Excellence Awards held in November.
Arriva London collected three prestigious awards at the UK Bus Awards held at the historic Troxy cinema venue in Limehouse, East London.
This year’s Lord Mayor’s Show, on 11th November, was an amazing cause for celebration, not only to welcome in the new Lord Mayor, but also to celebrate another year of Platinum giving by our wonderfully generous Payroll Givers.
