Network Rail offers two overarching routes for graduates and, after graduates join Network Rail, they will be able to follow any number of different career paths.
The two routes are:
If you’d love to get your hands on real projects out in the field rather than being confined to the drawing board, this could be your perfect destination.
You might find yourself using high-end technology, like our ultrasonic testing equipment, or contributing to new innovations, like battery-powered trains. And with plenty of freedom and responsibility open to you, your future will be whatever you make it.
Within engineering, we have three specific schemes: Civil Engineering, Electrical and Electronic Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering.
If you’re self-motivated, comfortable with change and keen to get stuck into a real role from the start, our business management programme might be for you.
Back that up with plenty of drive, energy and passion, and you’ll be able to influence where we go next as well as exploring all sorts of new opportunities for your career.
In business management, we have a number of different schemes available: Finance, general management, Health, Safety and Environment, Human Resources, IT and Business Services, project management, Property and Supply Chain management.
Network Rail also offers placement opportunities, with roles available in both engineering and business management.
