Applications open for 2014 Network Rail graduate scheme

Network Rail has extended its work placement scheme as applications open for the 2014 graduate scheme intake.

Graduates can join Network Rail in a range of careers, including project management, group business services, engineering, finance, and supply chain management.

Work placements will be available to 28 undergraduates through a year in industry, in London, Birmingham, Milton Keynes, Rugby and Manchester.

Mike Bickford, head of resourcing for Network Rail, said: “The best candidates for our graduate programme have had excellent work experience where they have developed the skills and behaviours needed to succeed in the work place.

“Offering undergraduates placements helps us identify candidates that show real promise and means we can secure top talent and save money in recruitment. Building this sort of pipeline for future leaders of the company helps us deliver a better railway for everyone.”
