Our passengers and freight users are at the heart of everything we do. We help connect people to their friends and families and get goods to their destination safely and efficiently. We’re an organisation where people matter. When you're part of our team, you matter to us and you matter to millions. Watch our video to find out more!

About the role (External)

This is a new role which has come about as part of our drive to modernise our maintenance function. Whilst it would be great to have applicants who have experience of rostering staff, we’re happy to consider applications from candidates with the right mix of skills including:

  • Can manage various activities at one time, with knowing how to prioritise in order to get them done
  • Remains calm under pressure
  • Confident using IT especially excel and word, also the ability to learn a new bespoke roster system

Since this is a new role, we’ll offer a comprehensive, tailor-made training package including:

  • An introduction to the railway, how we’re structured and how we work
  • Effective & Efficient Rostering classroom-based course, to give you all the skills you need to set you up for success in your role
  • Training in Fatigue Management standards and how to carry out fatigue checks
  • Sites visits to depots, to meet maintenance colleagues and to understand any local processes and access requirements
  • Introduction to relevant stakeholders (including Section Managers, Section Planners, Section Supervisors) to understand the business requirements
  • Formal excel training

Also, if you’re interested in completing an Apprenticeship, talk to us about including this in your development plan.

Diversity and inclusion are more than just buzz words for us. We’re constantly striving to make sure we provide a welcoming and safe environment for everyone.
