Ex-Forces

Armed Forces into Rail.

At Network Rail, we have a long history of supporting the Armed Forces. In particular, we are committed to helping Ex-Forces personnel reintegrate into successful civilian careers whilst supporting our already established Reservist community.

We were proud to have signed the British Armed Forces Military Covenant back in 2015, we were honoured by the Ministry of Defence with the Employers Recognition Scheme Silver award back in 2016 and the Employers Recognition Scheme Gold award in October 2017.

We admire so many of the attributes that someone from the Forces can bring to any role –

  • discipline
  • team work
  • leadership
  • ability to stay calm under pressure and change
  • comfortable in a fast paced environment
  • decision making with a high level of ambiguity
  • determination
  • flexible in an evolving environment.

All these qualities, which are essential in the Military, are also highly sought-after within our safety critical environment at Network Rail.

We work closely with the Career Transition Partnership and the Officers Association to ensure everyone making the move is fully supported.

Joining us could be the perfect route into a new successful civilian career, create a profile and sign up to Network Rail's job alerts to find your perfect second Career in the Rail industry.
