About Network Rail
Network Rail is at the heart of revitalising Britain's railway. More than 4.8 million rail journeys are made to connect people, every day. Network Rail plays a pivotal role in this as we own, operate and develop Britain's railway infrastructure. In the last 20 years the number of people travelling on the rail network has doubled, and the rail network, our stations and our platforms are dealing with more passengers than they were ever designed for. Our multi-billion-pound Railway Upgrade Plan represents the biggest investment programme in the railways since Victorian times.
As Network Rail transforms the UK landscape, we are looking for people who want to be involved in this change. The ideal candidate should be able to handle competing tasks and lead a team of like-minded professionals in delivering our annual audit plans.

You will provide practical risk management, internal controls and process improvement solutions whilst gaining valuable experience and exposure working with a variety of senior stakeholders, with opportunities to grow your career in other parts of the business.
