About Network Rail

The rail industry is getting bigger every year. We’re growing with it, and you could too.

Millions of passengers rely on us every day, which gives our people the rare opportunity to combine working on some of the UK’s largest infrastructure projects, innovating with new technology and helping to shape the future of our nation.

Owning, operating and developing Britain’s railway infrastructure makes us a major player in this sector. With over 20 of the UK’s largest stations, 20,000 miles of track and 30,000 bridges, tunnels and viaducts all under our control, we’re able to offer apprentices a future that’s both exciting and stable.

“We’re investing more in engineering projects than any other UK organisation.”

Our Level 3 Engineering Apprenticeship gives you all the support and training you need to take the first steps in a great career. You’ll earn a competitive salary, study towards impressive qualifications and play your part in delivering billions of pounds’ worth of projects designed to improve the journeys of families, friends, colleagues and businesses.

The first phase of the programme has a bit of a university feel to it — you’ll live, learn and laugh with other apprentices in one of our dedicated training centres. After this, you’ll head home to your local depot. Here you’ll be trusted to get out and about on the network specialising in electrification and plant, overhead lines, signalling, telecoms, track or off-track.

“We’re looking for enthusiastic people to become the future leaders of our team.”

If you’re passionate about engineering and have the drive to learn the skills that will make you a successful engineer, an apprenticeship could be perfect for you. If you’re a natural problem solver, with a keen eye for detail, we’ll show you how to take these skills to the next level. We’ll show you how to lead people, how to lead teams together we can lead the industry into exciting new territory.

Our Level 3 Engineering Apprenticeship is open to anyone who’ll be aged 18 on or before 27th March 2021. And there’s no upper age limit, so don’t worry if you’re a late starter.
