Our Insight

Network Rail runs Britain's rail infrastructure. Gradcracker's Carla and Jessica visited their HQ in Milton Keynes and were really impressed by the campus-style nature of the facilities: shops, library, gym and gaming areas! There was a really vibrant, friendly and open atmosphere.

Watch/listen to the videos and podcasts below to get a real insight into Network Rail. (Also, after our visit, we recorded a webinar with Network Rail that's well worth a watch.)

We get to know our advertisers by talking to their employees and working with their recruiters on content for their company hubs. We often visit their offices, spending a full day touring their facilities, and hear what they’re getting up to during calls and webinars.

This gives us a real ‘insight’ into their working environment, their culture and the things they are working on. We also learn about their recruitment processes and the things each company looks for in their ideal candidate.

All of this is useful stuff for you to know if you’re considering applying to them – so we thought we’d share it with you!
