People do not stand still at Arriva. We ensure their careers are able to grow as rapidly as our company. They are encouraged to continually develop with access to the training they need to get where they want to be.

Training to be the best
All of our employees are vital to our success. From drivers to engineers, we provide opportunities to help them achieve their full potential, including:

  • Structured, on-the-job training and induction programmes;
  • Personal development plans;
  • In-house learning centres;
  • Access to vocational training;
  • Online learning and development resources; and
  • Leadership, management and supervisory development initiatives.

Our focus is on developing long-term careers in the industry. As a result, many of our UK operations have already achieved recognition from Investors in People for our commitment to our employees.

Getting on board
Arriva supports early career development through work experience, internship and apprenticeship placements across a number of our businesses. In the UK, for example, we are a signatory of the Government’s Business Compact, which works to ensure all young people have fair and open access to employment opportunities.
