Network Rail is at the heart of revitalising Britain's railway. We're making rail safer, more reliable and more efficient than ever before. It's a big challenge, and every talented individual in every different team takes responsibility for doing their bit. We're all accountable for making the best of every duty. Of course, we're also accountable for helping each other thrive. Together, we're making a railway fit for the future. And as the network continues to grow, you'll grow along with us.

Maintaining and improving the rail network is complex work. It involves thousands of people in hundreds of roles, carrying out an extraordinary range of duties. With clear and safe work plans to follow, and all the resources they need, they bring an efficient, effective, safe and compliant approach to their work. This means customers nationwide benefit from a railway that is safer and more reliable than ever. And that brings us closer, quicker, to the railway of the future.

Combining exceptional organisational skills and a winning way with people, you'll produce all kinds of detailed plans. You'll help to ensure a section of the network benefits from efficient and effective works.

You'll be responsible for developing detailed, fully resourced work plans for an Infrastructure Maintenance team. You'll also provide accurate and effective general administrative support to the Section Manager and his people. We'll look to you to optimise all agreed work activities for a Section. Put simply, you'll produce plans that help us do the best job possible with the teams and times available.

It's a varied role that will see you producing everything from Safe System of Work plans through to draft quarterly plans. In addition, you'll set up and maintain a range of systems, databases and records. What's more, you'll personally manage weekly Plan-Do-Review meetings.
