Through four rotational placements, you’ll gain experience of the railway through one of the largest asset bases in Britain. You’ll make a contribution to some of our major engineering projects, such as the Great Western mainline, the Great North Rail Project or Digital Railway. You might get experience of maintaining a variety of bridges and structures, or be responsible for specifying innovative building materials and techniques to improve reliability and sustainability. You could deliver management solutions for complicated inner-city assets, or establish inspection and maintenance requirements for embankments and cuttings running through the countryside.
Why you should choose this placement?
A short-term placement offers a unique opportunity to experience many parts of the business, and make a contribution from day one. The scheme is run by former graduates who act as coaches and mentors to our new recruits. There are only a small number of summer placements available which means, if you’re successful, you’ll be highly visible across the function.
Many students go on to make successful applications to the graduate scheme and now hold senior positions.
This scheme runs from June to August 2020 for 10 weeks.
