Network Rail is seeking to recruit seven engineers of the future from Wales and Borders to join its hugely successful apprentice scheme from September this year. Places are available in Hereford, Llandrindod and Machynlleth for the three-year Advanced Engineering Apprenticeship Scheme, which is open to applications until Monday 12 March. The apprentices will play a vital role in the 20,000-strong team of front line engineers and technicians who fix and maintain Britain’s rail infrastructure. They will have the opportunity to ‘earn while they learn’, gaining valuable work experience, transferable skills and recognised qualifications along the way. The scheme has been running since 2005, with a total of 2,000 engineers completing the scheme, and is open to anyone who will be aged 18 on or before 29 September 2018, with no upper age limit. Andy Thomas, route managing director for Network Rail in Wales and Borders said: “We are committed to attracting new people to the railway and to developing their potential. Our advanced apprenticeship scheme is the ideal platform for this. “The 1600 people working for Wales and Borders are our greatest asset and central to delivering a safe and reliable railway for our customers and stakeholders every day.” Stephen Stokes, 28, from Abergavenny, is currently completing the advanced apprenticeship scheme in signalling and is due to complete his training in Autumn 2019. He said: “The scheme has opened up some great opportunities for me. I have been accepted for an IET (Institute for Engineering & Technology) bursary and I have also signed up to become a STEM ambassador, where I will be able to encourage young people to pursue their dream of becoming engineers or technicians. "I have a new purpose now, and am proud to say I work for Network Rail. I always stress to colleagues I meet through the scheme how  important it is to not only find a job that you are good at, but also one that you enjoy and fuels your passion." The first 21 weeks of the scheme are spent living and learning at Network Rail’s state of the art training centre in the Midlands. Apprentices then spend the rest of the scheme working from a depot close to home, specialising in disciplines such as electrification, signalling, telecoms and track. With hands-on projects and dedicated support, apprentices can also study for further qualifications and gain chartered membership of a professional engineering institute. Apprentices are guaranteed a job upon completion of the three-year course and more than four in five of those who started on the scheme a decade ago are still working for Network Rail today. The scheme also has a far higher retention rate than the national average for engineering. 75% of those that complete the scheme choose to go into employment with Network Rail, compared to the national average for engineering of 55%.   Visit  networkrail.co.uk/careers/apprenticeships/   to apply or for more information.    Source: Network Rail Media Centre
A significant number of Carillion’s Network Rail contracts have today been acquired by Amey Rail Limited, after the company went into liquidation last month. The successful sale provides reassurance to many in the rail industry and continuity for projects around the country. The transfer of Network Rail contracts operated by Carillion Construction Limited to Amey Rail Limited includes projects in the East Midlands, London and North West England. For many of the Carillion employees working on and supporting Network Rail projects, this is good news as the sale is likely to safeguard over 700 jobs and provide security for many other companies within the rail industry supply chain. Matthew Steele, commercial director Network Rail said “This is a positive step for the industry, ensuring the delivery of a number of major rail projects across the country whilst safeguarding an expected 700 jobs and the wider supply chain. We look forward to working with Amey to enable a smooth transition and ensure the ongoing safe working on our sites.” “We do recognise that this has been a very unsettling period for the employees of Carillion and would like to thank them for the continued commitment to the delivery of these projects.  We remain focused on the transfer of remaining projects and employees to new arrangements over the coming weeks and months.” Network Rail continues to work closely with the Official Receiver’s special manager - PwC - to seek long term transition arrangements for the remaining contracts and staff. Whilst this process is ongoing, the remaining contracts continue to be delivered under our arrangement with PwC to enable an orderly transition. Last month, it was agreed that PwC will pay Carillion employees’ wages for work done on and supporting Network Rail’s contracts until after Easter and many of the construction companies smaller rail suppliers were paid the arrears they were owed to ensure the continued delivery of important projects.   Source: Network Rail Media Centre
Network Rail engineers will work around-the-clock this Easter to deliver more than £23m of infrastructure improvements across Scotland’s railway. Over 2,500 staff will work around 40,000 hours on projects across the central belt, in the south west and in the north east of Scotland. In the central belt major investments will include rebuilding Livingston South Station and continuing work on electrifying the Edinburgh-Glasgow via Shotts line. More than a kilometre of new track will be laid on the West Coast Main Line at Carstairs and further progress will be made on a £100m signalling system renewal around the south of Glasgow. In the south west, engineers will be laying new tracks and working on improvements to drainage systems underneath the West Coast Main Line at Lockerbie and in the north east, engineers will be altering five bridges between Aberdeen and Inverurie as they prepare  to double-track the railway. Across Britain, more than 15,000 railway staff will be out delivering £118m-worth of investment at more than 400 locations as part of Network Rail’s long-term plan to create more reliable infrastructure and improved facilities for passengers. Mark Carne, chief executive at Network Rail, said: “This Easter, thousands of rail workers will be working round the clock to deliver crucial upgrades to the rail network as part of the £50bn Railway Upgrade Plan. “This huge investment programme will provide faster, better services and help relieve over-crowding to respond to the huge growth on Britain’s railways. “While most of the network is open for business as usual, some routes are heavily affected and so we strongly advise passengers to plan ahead this Easter.” Source: Network Rail Media Centre
