At the heart of everything are our employees and our suppliers, with whom mobility truly begins. Join us at our major site in Derby and take pride in working on quality, leading-edge projects that drive your career forward.

At Bombardier, we see trains as more than a mode of transport. Ours is a challenging, innovative, important industry, and we see trains as the future of eco-friendly travel; as outstanding examples of design; and as exceptional feats of engineering. They're also highly complex projects that need brilliant people to bring them to life and keep them running smoothly.

Your tasks:

Maintenance is vital to the smooth running of the UK's rail operations. Working alongside our customers, Bombardier's Service Execution teams have forged a market-leading position in the important area of train life-care and support.

Working in partnership with our customers, train operators and asset owners, we are responsible for the maintenance and safe delivery of trains into service on a daily basis. Operating from our Fleet Maintenance Depots, we can provide total fleet maintenance and take responsibility for all customer requirements, including refuelling, cleaning, depot management, full maintenance requirements and spares provision, fulfilling high standards of availability and reliability.
