Heritage Tram Technician

Blackpool Transport’s busy heritage department is looking to appoint a Heritage Tram Engineer to work with our dynamic team in our unique and historic Rigby Road Tram Works.

You will be a part of our highly skilled engineering team that maintain, restore, and conserve Blackpool’s iconic heritage tram fleet for future generations to enjoy.

The work will range from the overhaul of operational vehicles to complete rebuilds including the manufacturing of new parts when hundred-year-old originals are no longer available. Experience in Milling, Drilling, Lathe work and Boring is essential.

Working as part of a team, combined with some solo working using your own initiative, you will be an enthusiastic individual with a passion for excellence and a commitment to produce fine craftsmanship to an exacting standard.

The role will be primarily days, Monday to Friday, but at busy periods and to meet service demands, it will be necessary to work evenings and weekends. It is guaranteed 37 hours per week and the rate of pay is £14.58 per hour.


Who we are:

Blackpool Transport is a leading transport operator in the UK, operating Blackpool’s network of buses and modern light-rail trams. We are on a mission to connect people, businesses, and communities to a better future – through sustainable public transport.

We don’t sit still and our vision to be the most reliable and sustainable mode of travel on the Fylde Coast by 2025 is already coming to life. We’ll soon introduce the first-ever electric bus to Blackpool and have exciting plans to redevelop our historic depot on Rigby Road.

Whilst we have ambitious commercial objectives, we’re proud to be a key part of the communities that we serve and work closely with our stakeholders, partners and customers to deliver a high-quality bus and tram service.


Our company values are:

Safety First- We are focused on delivering the highest standard of service for the safety of our staff and customers.

People & Community Focused– We look after each other and we are invested in the people that we serve.
