  • Ex-Forces personnel

    If you're a self-motivated team player with good communication skills and a great work ethic, you'll fit right in at Network Rail

  • The skills and experience you'll have picked up in the Forces are easily transferable to the kind of work we do here. The big connection is safety. You’ll know that keeping yourself and your colleagues safe is top priority in the Forces. And it is for us too. After all, millions of people depend on us everyday to get them to their destination, safely.

    You may be used to a field-based environment working with big kit in all weathers. Or you may have been desk-based involved in planning and analysis, strategic design, systems, or electrical engineering. Dependent on your skills and experience, you may be suited to one of our engineering functions:

    • Maintenance
    • Asset Information
    • Track
    • Buildings and Civils
    • Construction
    • Signalling, Power & Communication

    Just like the Forces, we rely on a number of support functions. If you don’t feel engineering is for you, we’ve got plenty of other areas that you may be better suited to, like:

    • Commercial management
    • Finance
    • HR
    • Legal
    • Project management

    Join us and we'll give you every opportunity to develop a highly rewarding and long-term career, offering training and development that will make the most of your potential.
