You’re a logical thinker who’s adept at finding creative solutions to challenging problems. Resourceful and hardworking, you’re comfortable managing your own time to ensure you get the job done. Using your strong interpersonal skills, you’re able to build relationships with colleagues, suppliers and customers. You are flexible and don’t mind traveling across the country to seek out training and development opportunities.
You’ll discover why Network Rail is the single biggest consumer of electricity and one of the biggest telecoms providers in Britain. By exploring renewable energy technologies and smart substation solutions, you’ll help us to make our electricity supplies greener and more resilient. You’ll work with cutting-edge technology and industry experts to develop your knowledge of electrification, signalling and telecommunications. You’ll help us to improve safety and reduce journey times by coming up with innovative solutions to industry issues.
A year long placement offers a unique opportunity to experience many parts of the business, and make a contribution from day one. The scheme is run by former graduates who act as coaches and mentors to our new recruits. There are only a small number of Year in Industry placements available which means, if you’re successful, you’ll be highly visible across the function. Many former year in industry students now hold senior positions within the company.
You must be in your penultimate year at university and on course to achieve a minimum of a 2:2 in an Institution of Engineering Technology (IET) accredited degree.
Our vision is a better railway for a better Britain
We aim to deliver a railway that is safer, more reliable and more efficient than ever before, to help build a thriving, sustainable economy.
Britain’s railway does more than transport passengers and goods. It brings people and businesses closer together, which creates new jobs, opens up new markets and stimulates economic growth. We want to provide the best possible service to everyone who relies on the railway – passengers, train operating companies and businesses nationwide. Rail is vital to Britain's future.
