Our recruitment policy

We aim to recruit the right people into the right jobs at the right time

As well as helping us to meet our immediate needs, we believe this is an approach that encourages people to stay with us and develop their careers.

Equality, diversity and inclusion policy

Anyone who meets the requirements of the job is eligible for employment within Network Rail irrespective of age, disability, employment status, gender, health, marital status, sexual preference, membership or non-membership of a trade union, nationality, race, religion, social class or other non-job-relevant personal characteristics.

We make every effort to eliminate discrimination, direct and indirect, from our recruitment and selection process. Where applicable, reasonable adjustments will be made at each stage of the recruitment and selection process as required to reduce any potential barriers faced by applicants and to give them equal access to employment opportunities. 

Disability Confident Leader

Network Rail is accredited as a Disability Confident Leader, sponsored by the Department for Work and Pensions. Where a disabled applicant meets the essential criteria for any or our vacancies, they will be guaranteed an interview.
