Human Resources Apprentice

Do you have the drive, enthusiasm and a passion to help take the North further? If yes, then come and be part of our amazing team here at TransPennine Express.

We are an intercity train company connecting people and communities across our cities and major towns in the North of England and Scotland.  Together we will continue to transform rail travel with faster, easier journeys that offer a step change in services with our fleet of new high-tech trains.

The North is a vibrant place to live and work and here at TransPennine Express our services are helping to keep the country moving.  If you want to be involved in something truly transformative, that will have a lasting impact on how we travel, then please join us and help us to take the North further.

As a Human Resources apprentice, you're gain a full understanding of the ‘people' side of the business.  Reporting to the Learning & Development Manager, you'll spend time learning how colleagues are recruited, trained and supported in their employee journey.  A series of mini ‘placements' will give you an excellent grounding in all aspects of how a busy HR & L&D team support line managers to keep a train company running smoothly.  You'll also spend time working in front-line roles, learning what it's like working at our stations and on board our trains.

You'll work toward a recognised HR qualification, which will, alongside your practical work experience, help you apply for a permanent role in HR.

To apply for this apprenticeship, you'll need to have the following characteristics:

  • A genuine interest in developing a career in HR and / or L&D
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills
  • The ability to act in a confidential and sensitive manner
  • A willingness to travel around the TPE network
  • An interest in working with people
  • The ability to work as part of a team
  • The ability to work accurately, with good attention to detail

To say thank you for all your hard work, we offer competitive salaries and some great rewards. There's a final salary pension scheme and big savings on rail travel: free TransPennine Express journeys for you and free leisure journeys for your family. You and your family can also get discounts with other train operating companies. Your job comes with 25 days holiday plus standard UK bank holidays as well as all kinds of benefits, discounts and a Cycle to Work scheme.
