Graduates & Young Professionals

Graduates & Young Professionals

A supportive and proactive environment for those starting out on their careers.

We do not apply a 'sit and watch' approach: from day one you can expect to be working on client projects under the supervision of experienced colleagues.

However, you will be surrounded by all the support you need to master your role and increase your technical knowledge of the international rail industry.

Time will also be devoted to helping you acquire valuable client management techniques and important ‘soft’ skills – delivering presentations, project management, people management etc. – to build up your commercial strengths.

Plus, you will gain all the benefits you can expect from a career in a respected technical services organisation like Ricardo, whether taking advantage of opportunities to work on international assignments or just being part of a global community of young professional developing their knowledge together.
