The available apprenticeships are in Network Rail’s operations team, which manage the day to day running of the railway and work to keep trains running reliably and safely for passenger and freight operators.

The 18-month long scheme will see participants get hands-on experience of working in a busy railway environment and is a great starting point for a career in the rail industry.

In the role, apprentices will learn all about what’s needed to keep the railway running 24/7, including spending time in stations and signalling centres, as well as learning about routine maintenance and how to respond to incidents during times of disruption.
