Further information

With an impressive range of assets and a portfolio of ambitious projects, Network Rail’s Energy Services has big opportunities available to System Design 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.

As a System Design Engineer, you’ll join a collaborative, customer focused, accountable and challenging centre of electrical system design excellence, responsible for the engineering development (pre-GRIP to GRIP 3) of new electrification schemes and traction power supply upgrade projects. The team is also responsible for setting policy in relation to electrification system design, and developing route based Traction Power System Strategies and managing a number of network configuration processes relating to isolation documentation, protection settings, and major feeding diagrams. You will be involved in our assurance responsibilities, and potentially also be required to work on research and development.

To join us as a Systems Design Engineer, you’ll need an HNC/HND and significant AC or DC railway electrification experience, specialising in electrification system design. 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.
