You’re three steps away from your future.


Step 1 – Getting to know you

Send your application and take our online tests.

  1. TfL’s Strengths test
  2. An ability test – either a combined numerical, inductive and deductive reasoning test OR a mechanical test for some engineering schemes.

To prepare for this, think about the things you enjoy doing, the things you do well, and how they’ll be beneficial to the role you’re applying for.

Step 2 – Revealing your passion

Complete a short video interview.

You’ll film yourself responding to certain questions and prompts, then share the video with us. You can do the video interview at whatever time suits you – just choose a quiet place.

You can try it out first using this video interview practice link.
