About Network Rail
Network Rail is at the heart of revitalising Britains railway. From Crossrail Europes largest civil engineering project to investment in passenger stations and major programmes of electrification, we are involved in some of the most ambitious and diverse ventures that this country has ever seen.
Our route covers key lines for commuter, cross-country and long-distance travel both north-south and east-west for both passenger and freight services.
Passenger numbers are growing rapidly across the route and are expected to increase by 30 per cent by 2023. Ongoing work in the route to boost network capacity includes junction improvements, additional track, and train lengthening schemes, all as part of the national Railway Upgrade Plan.
At Network Rail, we are dedicated to becoming one of Britains best employers and believe this starts with placing the candidate at the heart of everything we do!
Our ambition to be responsive to passengers and freight users, drives us every day and were empowered to do the right thing for those who use the rail network. We actively challenge unsafe practices and take responsibility for addressing risks, resolving issues and protecting safety and wellbeing.
