Sound good? Then why not read on.
RedTrack is a unique graduate programme. It offers a 4-year, fixed-term, full-time job that incorporates a 4-year degree apprenticeship programme delivered in conjunction with Manchester Metropolitan University. And the rewards are incredible.

3. The chance to achieve the Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship, which incorporates the CMI Level 5 Diploma in Leadership and Management. The Level 5 Diploma, awarded at the end of the third year, offers students an interim award and is in addition to the CMI Chartered status and a BA (Hons) degree awarded at the end of year 4.
Work with the best
Practical skills take time to learn. Thats why youll need to work 35 hours a week, and depending on your interest and ability, that could be in any area of our business.
Fancy yourself in finance? Our finance team would love to meet you. Want to be a station supremo? Weve got a station waiting for you now. Want to help the trains run on time, every time? Then our Control team is for you. And thats just for starters.
However, its not all fun and glory. Youll need to be flexible, organised and maybe even work shifts. Youll be doing lots of travelling up and down our network, as and when required and learning lots.
How it breaks down.
In year one youll work at the front line of the business with our Onboard, Stations, and Control and Resourcing teams.
In year two, youll spend 6 months in two relevant areas such as Finance, HR, Learning and Development, Recruitment, Sales and Marketing, Catering Logistics, Revenue Management, Production, Fleet and Engineering.
During year three, youll specialise in one area. Youll even get the chance to work within other Virgin companies.
In your final year youll specialise within one department and have a senior member of the VT management team as your mentor. Priceless.
