Network Rail seeking volunteers!

We're looking for volunteers with accessibility expertise to join our Built Environment Accessibility Panel.

The purpose of the panel is to help make sure any major building works, stations designs and our other amenities across the UK are accessible and as inclusive as possible, helping us to deliver a better railway for a better Britain.

Membership of the panel will be voluntary. A small meeting allowance, travel and expenses will be paid. Members of the panel will be trained in the Government Railway Investment Panel (GRIP) project plan and reading drawings.

The panel will meet up to eight times per year in London. On occasion travel may be required to visit major projects. Please see the draft terms of reference.

Volunteers wanted

We are looking for two people to join the panel who have:

  • A knowledge of the built environment planning processes and projects would be an advantage.
  • Interest in accessibility to transport infrastructure, in particular interest in the accessibility of rail built environment.
  • Personal experience of protected characteristics (as defined in the Equality Act 2010) and understand the requirement for inclusive design.

What we will offer

  • Involvement in helping us make Britain's rail infrastructure accessible and inclusive for all.
  • The chance to develop new solutions for inclusive access.

If you are interested, please email your CV or employment / voluntary activity history and a paragraph on what expertise you believe you could bring to the panel to Karen.Venn@Networkrail.co.uk.

The closing date is Tuesday 30 May 2015. Interviews will be held in June. OR
