We have big plans for the railway – and for our people.
We have £47bn earmarked to invest in landmark projects and initiatives between 2019 and 2024 as part of our Railway Upgrade Plan. We’re hoping you’ll choose to join us and help turn our plans into reality; to create a world-class railway and really make a difference to rail travel in Britain.
We’re already making history through some of the largest engineering projects in Europe: Elizabeth Line (previously known as Crossrail), Birmingham New Street Station, London Bridge, HS2 and Thameslink. Our award-winning architectural developments are helping to regenerate towns, cities and businesses, whilst new train lines are connecting communities.
The scope and scale of our operations and transformational projects is huge, offering incredibly varied opportunities to advance your career. But we don’t just do rail; there’s digital technology, retail and property management too. We offer a diverse programme of graduate schemes as well as flexible placements for undergraduates. –– Investing in you

You’ll have access to state-of-the-art training and development facilities and be rewarded with a range of generous bonus and pension schemes to help you plan for the future.
