Eurostar Apprenticeship Programme - now closed
Thank you for your interest in this Apprenticeship Programme, please read below for more information.
In the world of train travel, Eurostar has been at the leading edge of innovation since 1994. Pioneers in more ways than one, Eurostar is at the forefront of train travel and has successfully introduced innovative services and engineering capabilities.
Engineering is critical to the business not only to ensure development and maintenance of its entire fleet, but also to allow the business to grow and expand into new markets.
During 2012, significant modification work on two trains allowed Eurostar to become the official carrier of the French and Belgian Paralympic teams, while ensuring they maintained a reliable service during one of the busiest periods London has ever seen.
Following its 20th Birthday in 2014, 2015 saw Eurostar’s introduction of the e320 train scheduled to enter commercial service. The e320 represents a major advance for international high-speed rail with the original order of 10 units now in the final stage of completion and refurbishments being completed across their existing fleet.
Eurostar is committed to business growth with a passion and focus on developing staff. As part of their ongoing recruitment and attracting future engineering talent, Eurostar offers a fully supported apprenticeship programme.
