Expert training, thousands of pounds in your pocket and a lifetime of engineering possibilities. When you're transforming Britain's vast railway network, you get more than just an education. Over three fascinating, surprising, career-advancing years as an apprentice, you'll gain the kind of skills that can set you up for life.

We are now open to applications for our March 2018 Advanced Apprenticeship Scheme.  To view all of our recruiting locations please visit our Apply page. The closing date for applications is Friday 22 September.

All leave and holidays are scheduled by Network Rail.  We will be unable to accommodate any holidays or leave outside of the scheduled dates within the first 21 weeks of your apprenticeship.


Investing in our apprentices

We invest a lot in our apprentices because we want you to be the future of our business. There's lots of information in this section to help explain what you'll be doing and what to expect - please read through these pages to make sure this is the right opportunity for you before applying.

Are we a good match for each other?

With so many opportunities available, we understand that making the right choice can feel like a daunting prospect - that’s why we’ve developed a Match-me questionnaire. It will give you an overview of what it’s like to work at Network Rail and we’ll give you an indication as to whether you are likely to be a good match for one of our roles.

To take the quiz you'll need to register as a new candidate, but this doesn't mean you are under any obligation to submit an application.
