We promote an agile working policy and the role will require some travel, occasional overnight stays and potential secondments.

Due to our recent successes in being awarded a number of key Network Rail framework contracts for the duration of CP6, we are seeking to grow our existing design teams (primarily based in York, Manchester and Sheffield) in order to meet the increasing project requirements of our developing forward order book and to support our current key clients in the delivery of ongoing and future rail projects.

This is an exciting opportunity to join one of our friendly and experienced signalling design teams at the early stages of the new Network Rail control period, and become part of a growing team with a great opportunity to work on a number of high profile projects across the UK, supporting some of its key railway engineering delivery organisations.

Working for one of the major consultancies within the UK rail sector, you will collaborate with an experienced group of signalling designers which have been involved in some of the most significant projects undertaken across the UK rail network.

As an integral member of the team, you will have an opportunity to increase your knowledge; undertake new and stretching opportunities; support projects both within the UK and internationally, whilst also being able to raise your profile and showcase your talents within a global engineering, management and development consultancy focused on guiding its clients through many of the planet's most intricate challenges.
