Further information

With an impressive range of assets and a portfolio of ambitious projects, Network Rail Energy Services has big opportunities available to Electrical Power Distribution Engineers at all levels.

When it comes to careers in the energy industry, Network Rail might not be the first name you think of but as one of the largest energy distributors in Britain, our network is literally alive with electricity. We use over 3 TWh every year with an annual bill of over a quarter of a billion pounds and as part of our electrification plan we’re investing billions of pounds to power a better railway for a better Britain. Now you can be a part of it all.

The Energy Services Distribution team is responsible for developing Network Rail’s electrical distribution system asset policy, technology strategies and specifications. The team also provides asset and utilities management, and business planning support to the Routes, as well as general technical support to all Network Rail functions. As a Distribution Engineer, you’ll provide vital technical input, support and advice - ensuring we provide excellent energy services to customers and suppliers. You’ll also help to develop the policies, standards and specifications associated with the energy sub system. You may also be asked to provide the company with technical expertise and resources for testing and commissioning of new or altered electrification and plant systems and equipment.

To join us as a Distribution Engineer, you’ll need an HNC/HND and substantial, relevant engineering experience. If you are an Incorporated Engineer with a degree or equivalent qualification, you could join us as a Senior Engineer. With significant experience and Chartered Engineer status, you could take on the role of Principal Engineer, with responsibility for technical direction and team leadership. Strong knowledge of policies, standards and legislation are essential at all three levels.

If you are HNC/HND qualified but do not have an engineering track record, you may be suitable for an Assistant Engineer role, with a focus on supporting information management, project delivery and asset inspection.
