Rail / Permanent Way Headhunters

Following record levels of investment in the rail industry over recent years, the government is set to continue investing billions of pounds as part of the biggest rail modernisation programme in a century. With HS2 along with major commitments to levelling up the economy across the whole of England, the rail industry will continue to face significant demands for high quality resources.

As well as new infrastructure projects, network enhancements, improved safety and modernised trains, much of the investment is aimed at improving efficiency with billions being spent on renewing existing infrastructure to improve reliability and punctuality. In addition, increasing technological advances coupled with increasing consumer demands, also present significant challenges to the industry.

  • Technical Director
  • Senior Engineer
  • Senior Project Manager
