Network Rail helps bring the country together. It owns, operates and maintains Britain’s rail network, increasingly delivering improved standards of safety, reliability and efficiency. Network Rail’s investment programme to enhance and modernise the network is the most ambitious since the railways were first developed over a hundred years ago, delivering a 21st century railway for both customers and society at large.
Transport system of the future
Network Rail’s remit stretches far beyond the network of railway lines that run the length and breadth of the UK. From stations to tracks, signals, bridges and tunnels, it owns and manages a vast number of assets essential to the social and economic wellbeing of the entire nation. In order to meet the travel demands of an ever-increasing population, they’re expected to grow by at least 30% over the next ten years. In fact, they have funding secured for an infrastructure investment programme that could change the face of Britain. It’s going to take billions of pounds and hundreds of the sharpest minds in the business. Projects like Crossrail – the biggest civil engineering project in Europe, the £5.5bn overhaul of the Thameslink route, the £425m Reading remodelling project, the massive £600m Birmingham New Street project and the £300m new line from Airdrie – Bathgate will demand an expert group with a myriad of experiences.
Network Rail offers programmes built around graduates becoming the complete professional as many of the graduate programmes lead to chartered status with a professional body. Graduates gain unrivalled experience through varied placements; impact diverse projects (some of which are the biggest engineering projects in Europe); personally control the pace of their chosen speciality and develop their skills within its ever-changing environment.
