Why Network Rail?

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 here and 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.
