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. Luckily, our Infrastructure Maintenance delivery teams benefit from clear supervision and support from experts.

This keeps them engaged and enthusiastic. It means they're committed to safety, efficiency and reliability. And that means customers nationwide will enjoy all the advantages of a world class railway.

Assisting an Infrastructure Maintenance Section Manager with the inspection, maintenance and renewal of assets, you'll supervise the delivery of associated work and help with the management of staff. It's an excellent opportunity to use all of your specialist knowledge while developing valuable leadership skills. It's also an extremely varied role.

We'll look to you to undertake inspections, and prepare work and resource specifications and method statements. Providing accurate and detailed information, you'll keep a range of systems, databases and records fully up-to-date. Checking the quality of work and making sure assets are compliant to exacting standards, you'll enjoy the scope to identify and propose asset renewal work. You'll also allocate resources to works, and oversee both the quality of people's work and their welfare at work. As well as enhancing your own skills, you'll help others with their development. Crucially, you will champion the highest standards of safety in every aspect of your team's work.
