"The Colas Rail Graduate Scheme has given me invaluable experience of working for a major business."

Started 2009 (Future Leaders Programme)

Discipline: Mechanical

Operations Director S&C – Track

Will's experience with the Leadership Graduates Scheme

"It gives huge opportunities for graduates coming into our business."

The Colas Rail Graduate Programme has given me exposure to a variety of areas of the business, at all levels, within the rail industry. You can expect to go through three 8-month rotations, which will be across the different locations and divisions, depending on the demands of the company and the direction that your skills take you within the business.

As a graduate you need to be able to slot straight into a working environment, and have the versatility to take on individual projects or work closely in a team. You will be expected to work with all levels of management and with the client, and will be expected to contribute from day one. You will receive varied and comprehensive training throughout the programme and see a real emphasis and enthusiasm from Colas Rail for you to progress within the business.

You can expect to be exposed to a variety of the rail industry’s working environments, from large Modular Track Renewal sites, High Output Track Renewals and Ballast Cleaning Systems, various Depots, Departments and Head Offices. As you rotate through the business you will work with, and learn from, industry-leading professionals from the outset. This role will require someone who is adaptable, flexible and prepared to travel.

The Colas Rail Graduate Progamme has given me invaluable experience of working for a major business, and has presented me with a clear career path that promises quick progression to operational management.
