What's in it for you?
You’re sure to be surprised and excited by the sheer scope, scale and variety of opportunities we can offer on a placement with us. For a general overview of all the placement schemes we have on offer, please download the graduate and placement brochure - you can find details of our individual schemes below.
Join us and you'll have enormous scope to progress your career, while helping to influence Britain's rail infrastructure, transport network and economy into the 22nd century. If you do well on your placement you could even walk away with an offer to come back and join us on one of our graduate schemes once you have finished university.
Our year in industry placement schemes are designed for students who are still currently studying towards their degree and need to spend a year in industry as part of their course. Candidates who have already graduated or are due to graduate before the start of the scheme are not eligible for these schemes and should consider applying for one of our graduate schemes instead.
Candidates studying on a Tier 4 visa will need to provide a letter from their education sponsor (University) addressed to Network Rail to confirm that the year in industry placement forms an integral and assessed part of your course and will not breach your tier 4 work placement restrictions. The letter should also include the terms and conditions of the work placement, including the work that you will be expected to carry out during the work placement and how you will be assessed. Please ensure you speak with your education sponsor to determine if you can obtain this letter from them before you start your application for any of the year in industry placement schemes.
Having attained a 2:2 or above at the end of your first year, you should be on course for at least a 2:2 overall.
If you join our Year in Industry placement scheme in

tools, technology and information to enable our colleagues to successfully run and
transform the rail industry.
