New recruitment campaign launched for Edinburgh Trams

With the Edinburgh Trams set to expand in the spring once the Trams to Newhaven extension opens, the organisation have launched a new recruitment campaign targeting people from a diverse range of backgrounds.

Edinburgh Trams are looking for customer-focused individuals and are targeting people who share a passion for delivering a premium service for local residents and visitors. Salaries are up to £23,141 per annum and there is also an attractive employee benefits package.

Sue Bucher, Edinburgh Trams HR Manager, said: “We are now advertising for Customer Service & Ticketing Assistants, both on a full-time and part-time basis, which gives a great deal of flexibility to those with commitments outside of work. As well as a competitive salary, 33 days annual leave, overtime available at Bank Holiday rates, contributory company pension scheme, life cover, HSF Health Plan, and Cycle to Work scheme are offered. Naturally, they will also enjoy free travel on both the tram and Lothian Buses, plus an annual ridacard for someone else for just a one-off payment of £60 as opposed to £600!”

As well as an advert on a tram which invites people to “Glide to the Future”, this campaign also has extensive advertising which asks potential employees “How far can you go with Edinburgh Trams?”.

Lea Harrison, Edinburgh Trams Managing Director, said: “Our Customer Service & Ticketing Assistants are the first people visitors meet as soon as they arrive in Edinburgh, so they play a vital role in promoting the city as well as helping people to make the most of its tram system. Over the coming months, we will also be looking to hire extra tram drivers and engineers, proving more exciting opportunities to join our growing, fast-paced team.”

Working at Edinburgh Trams offers great opportunities for career progression too with more than half of current employees having had an internal promotion since they started.
