Talent and Development

Crossrail is committed to developing its staff to meet the needs of the project and ensuring staff have the skills required to undertake their roles effectively.

Talent and succession planning allows Crossrail to consider the integrated team’s talent pipeline and identify development opportunities for staff so that when the time comes, they are prepared and ready to progress.  A learning legacy paper on Talent and Succession Planning reviews Crossrail’s approach to talent and succession planning across an integrated team to secure the programme’s delivery.

Crossrail is committed to developing the next generation of leaders through the Crossrail Leadership Development Programme. The programme is targeted at individuals who are in, or are soon to be in a management role, to make sure they have the skills to be an effective leader. A learning legacy paper on the Crossrail Leadership Development Programme outlines Crossrail’s approach to developing leadership talent within an integrated team.

Crossrail provides a range of learning and development opportunities to its staff to build the workforce capabilities, skills and competences required on the programme. A learning legacy paper on Learning & Development reviews Crossrail’s approach to learning and development across the integrated team.
