Operations Graduate, Oxford Bus: Lucy

After completing a History degree at the University of Westminster, Lucy joined the Go-Ahead Group in September 2017 as an Operations Graduate and is now based at Go-Ahead London.

Lucy says:

"LA.jpgI was attracted to the Go-Ahead graduate programme because of the progression opportunities, and very much felt it is a great starting point for my career in the public transport industry. 

Operations is my core department and I have learnt how vital it is to get yourself involved with all aspects from day one in order to have an influence in creating your own career path. I am now in my second year based at Go-Ahead London managing people and dealing with logistics which allows me to having an oversight into the functions.

I would definitely recommend this  opportunity to anyone looking for a challenging and exciting career, especially women. We are doing a lot to encourage women into the Public Transport Sector, you can read more about this here. I currently sit on the Diversity Focus Group, looking at diversity as a whole and how it impacts everyone at work, what we can do to overcome any barriers and how to be the best we can be at Go-Ahead. I was really surprised to find the amount of females there were in the industry."
