Congratulations on joining the Network Rail team.
We appreciate that in times of change people who are offered a new role often feel a little uncertain of what the future holds. We'd like to make you feel more confident about your decision to join Network Rail by giving you as much information as possible to ensure you have a smooth journey.
Before you start with us, there are a few processes that need to be completed.
In the next few days you'll receive an offer pack which will include:
Once you have read the paperwork and made sure it's correct, please sign and return the relevant documents as soon as possible. This will affect your start date as we can only start the pre-employment checks once we receive them.
The medical form needs to be sent separately to HCC who conduct and review the medicals on our behalf.
If you have any questions about the paperwork, call our New Hire team on 0161 880 1100, then select option 5 and option 2.
Please be assured that all the information provided to us is treated as confidential.
When our New Hire team have received your paperwork, we will start the following pre-employment checks:
Where possible, please warn your referees that we'll be contacting them.
The Resourcing Specialist or your new line manager will contact you to confirm when the above checks are complete, only then can we confirm a start date for you. On average, this process takes 4-6 weeks, depending on the role.
Once you have started with us, we will invite you to a corporate induction; this event will take place within your first few months at Network Rail. In the meantime the Onboarding checklist is designed to prepare you for your first day and help you settle in to your new team and quickly become effective in your role.
We look forward to seeing you soon at Network Rail.
