Diversity and inclusion

We’re continuing to build a more diverse and inclusive organisation representative of the passengers we serve

We are becoming a company that is on the side of passengers and freight users.  To do this it is essential we become a more open, diverse and inclusive organisation, harnessing the skills and expertise of all our people and attracting the best talent to help us have a safe, accessible railway for everyone.

We want to be on the side of the passengers and demonstrate our leadership across the rail industry. We will be an organisation that is easy to do business with, and one where our people are proud to work. 

To achieve these ambitions, we will work to increase the diversity of our workforce so that we represent the passengers that we serve up and down the country – because everyone matters.

We will continue to provide an environment that helps everyone to be the best that they can be.  The differences between us are what add depth, strength and creativity to our work, allowing individuals and teams to harness their talent and capabilities and help improve our railway.

We aspire to make the best use of our people’s talent and capabilities and to provide real opportunities for their professional development. 

There is more to do – but the success of our work on diversity and inclusion, and the excitement of being part of the biggest transformation of Britain’s rail industry in history, are starting to make Network Rail an employer of choice.
