Trevor started working with TfGM in 1987 as a data collector on buses – despite having trained as a confectioner! During Trevor's career he has had the opportunity to progress to be a Senior Duty Manager.

“I would say that if you’re just starting out at TfGM, then this is exactly the right place to be. The organisation has lots of new challenges and there are lots of opportunities; you need to find them and embrace them".


Natalie joined TfGM in January 2013 as an apprentice in the Customer Relations team after looking at potential alternatives to university. “I didn’t really know what I wanted to do after finishing school so being able to join TfGM, as a 16 year-old, as part of the first apprentice scheme was a great opportunity. TfGM has opened a lot of doors for me with the two NVQ qualifications and the on the job experience it has provided".
