Rail / Permanent Way Headhunters

With an estimated investment of £38 billion between 2014 and 2019 by Network Rail, as well as significant investment in projects such as High Speed 2, the rail industry is likely to face significant demand on resource over the coming years.

As well as infrastructure projects, network enhancements, improved safety and modernised trains, much of the investment is aimed at improving efficiency with a further 20% in efficiencies targeted for 2019 on top of the 15.5% achieved between 2009 and 2014. In addition, increasing technological advances coupled with increasing consumer demands, also present significant challenges to the industry.
