Edinburgh Trams is a key element of a modern and integrated transport solution for Scotland’s capital. Delivering ‘Excellence for Edinburgh’ is our mantra.

"Edina! Scotia's darling seat! " 

Robert Burns

In Burns' ‘Address to Edinburgh’, the city welcomes visitors from near and far and is filled with residents who contribute to its success as Scotland’s Inspiring Capital.

Ask anyone around here, we value innovation and everyone contributes. 

Our philosophy is simple; employ great people who will create a great workplace and ultimately, a great service for our customers. If you are willing to play your part and ask yourself, ‘what can I do differently?’, then applying for a job with us may be the first step in your new career journey. Like the city itself:

"There is no leaving Edinburgh, no shifting around, it stays with you always"
