Graduates & Apprentices


We run a fantastic program every year taking on 3 new Graduates across Operations and Head Office. The program runs for 18 months and spans across all parts of the business giving our new colleagues a real flavour of the business as a whole with exposure to life in Head office, the Contact Centre, the Coach Stations, Garages and Depots. Since the scheme began we have managed to place 100% of our graduates into roles within the business, which is a fantastic achievement - some have even gone onto become directors!

National Express launched its apprenticeship program in 2014 and we now have 9 apprentices in our business who are either completing the scheme or in jobs as a result of it. Our NVQ programs run for either 1 or 2 years depending on the subject you have chosen.

As well as your team manager here at National Express, you will have the support of your local assessor who will help you complete your chosen NVQ, through continuous on the job learning and development. Whilst our Business Administration programme is based at our Head Office in Birmingham, our other two schemes are based around the UK.
