Rail Infrastructure Job Opportunities

Public spending on the transport sector in 2013/14 was in excess of £20 billion, with £7 billion being spent on Railways alone, indicating a wealth of employment opportunities for those looking for a second career in Project Management, Risk Assessment and Planning – Areas that officers are well equipped to transfer their own skill-set to even if they have never considered this sector before.

Chris Ackerman, Programme Manager at Network Rail, discusses how the industry will continue to grow, with the opportunities for officers whose core skills are highly valued by employers in this sector, including Network Rail themselves. This growth is underlined by the recent commitments by the Government to support HS2 and Pennine & Midland upgrade programmes, meaning that sustainable and rewarding careers in this sector are a viable option for any officer.
