Switch up your playlist with the first #WeAreRTM podcast, gain exclusive insight into the leaders running the rail industry their opinions on recent headlines, visions for the future and meet the personalities behind the job titles. It's not your average interview.

Anna-Jane Hunter, Network Rail’s director, North of England rail, joins hosts Emily Rodgers and Matt Roberts, giving a deep dive into her role, women in rail and the supply chain alongside some more light-hearted podcast antics. 

Two proud North East voices, alongside Emily’s own North West background, shines through as we chat in detail about the investment into the North and provide our listeners with an unprecedented behind-the-scenes access to a key figure in the industry. 

Covering such a range of topics in the timely half-hour sitting, this episode provides an all-access pass to the supply chain and rail industry individuals which simply can’t afford to ignore. Interested in tenders or perhaps leaving a local legacy following a project work? So are Network Rail, so why not listen in to one of the company’s key figures for Northern outreach giving her views on the same. 

It’s not all supporting either. Anna-Jane might be a ‘Network Rail bod’ as she describes it, but listen in as she gives a real genuine, honest assessment of her organisation and the state of rail and rail work in the region. There are no punches pulled, with talk of Network Rail’s need to quickly innovate and seize on transferable skills. 

The podcast might be industry-focused, with a core message supporting the supply chain in furthering their rail knowledge, but that doesn’t stop the laughs and light-hearted fun flowing throughout. 

Our guests may be important figures at the head of key decision-making organisations in the industry, but we’re all just people too at the end of the day. As such, want to hear about Anna-Jane’s favourite music, the significance of bacon butties and listen in to her attempting our rail pub quiz, tune in just as keenly!
