The Role

Exciting opportunities await you in Scotland!

As part of our Examination team based in Glasgow, you’ll have the unique opportunity to be part of the team that examines the condition of railway civil engineering assets across Scotland to ensure their safety in continuing in use.

The Civils Examinations Framework Agreement (CEFA) team provide insight to enable Network Rail to continue the safe, efficient and optimal management of the capability of its earth structures assets.

By gathering intelligence around the condition of them and how they are developing and changing, this will form the basis of decision making for future intervention and safety of the structure to prevent functional failure. These assets are part of the heritage of our country, and we need to ensure that they are safe to meet today’s needs as well as tomorrow’s.

Your involvement matters. Keeping our railway running on time, maximising track access capacity, whilst ensuring the safety of our trains and travelling public makes a genuine difference to people’s lives, often in the very community where you live. 

The railway sector has always been one of our core sectors and because of our success in building and maintaining the railway, we’re an industry leader in Rail services, passionate about using our skills to make a difference and continuing to win further exciting projects for you to get involved with.

We’re proud of what we do, that’s what makes a career with us unlike any other.

What will you bring?

As a Graduate, other than your relevant degree, we don’t expect you to bring prior experience of engineering or the Rail industry with you when you join us; we will give you all the skills and opportunities to become a technical expert that you could hope for.

  • Full driving licence

In return:

We place great value on all our people and the contribution they make to our business, so it’s important that our rewards make us all feel valued here. If you’re happy, you’ll think better.

It’s a simple formula but one that puts your wellbeing as a top priority, that’s why we recognise individual needs and offer a flexible reward and benefits package that puts you first, including:

  • Starting salary of £26,500
  • Exceptional development and progression plan
