Those looking for graduate management jobs may be interested in the new scheme unveiled by the Greater Manchester Passenger Transport Executive (GMPTE), which offers two years of paid work.
Currently working on a £600 million expansion plan, the body is responsible for setting up transport policy for the area and allocating funding, and the three successful graduate applicants will work in several project management roles, according to Crain's Manchester Business News.
Graduates will gain work experience in various areas of management in a scheme which promises challenges, career potential and benefits.
Paul Griffiths, interim projects director for GMPTE, said: "At GMPTE we plan and deliver some of the biggest construction projects in the north-west. We want to hear from ambitious graduates who have the drive and determination to help us achieve our vision for transport."
Network Rail recently said it would double graduate jobs in 2009 as well as providing postgraduate courses in project management at University College, London and the University of Warwick.
