The OA senior officers break-out session was extremely well attended and featured senior executives from Carillion, Network Rail and ISS Labour sharing advice about securing senior roles within rail.

Simon Higgens , CEO of ISS Labour, said “Rail is still all about safety, heavy machinery and intensive use of manpower, so there are huge similarities to moving from the Armed Forces into the Rail sector”
