What do we do?
Network Rail own and operate the railway infrastructure in England, Wales and Scotland on behalf of the nation. That’s 20,000 miles of track, 40,000 bridges and viaducts and thousands of signals, level crossings and points. We also manage rail timetabling and 18 of the largest stations in England, Scotland and Wales.

Why do we do it?
People depend on Britain’s railway for their daily commute, to visit friends and loved ones and to get home safe every day. Businesses depend on the network to get their employees to work on time and move their goods around the country and to ports.

We work around-the-clock to provide a safe, reliable experience for the millions using Europe’s fastest-growing railway each and every day.

Our engineers are shaping the future, designing and building infrastructure that will transform the railway for future generations.

There's more to us than you think!
To make all of this happen, we have around 40,000 employees in over 4,000 unique job roles from engineering to human resources, social media to project management, environmentalists to signallers- making Network Rail a very interesting place to work!

We have locations across England, Scotland and Wales so because we are a national organisation there are opportunities everywhere for you to start a career with us.

As well as our apprenticeships and graduate programmes, we have lots of opportunities for you to take part in while you are at school. Including our STEM Engagement activities which you can do online, at home and in the classroom! We also offer a lot of support in developing employability skills to help you to get ready for the world of work!
