Further information

Right at the heart of revitalising Britain’s railway, Network Rail is involved in some of the most ambitious and diverse ventures that this country has ever seen. Our Infrastructure Projects (IP) function plays its part by providing cost effective renewals and enhancements on our railway through the professional control, management and delivery of capital projects. A regionally-based business, in addition to four regional delivery units (current work includes Crossrail and the redevelopment of King’s Cross station); IP’s scope includes a national Signalling division, Thameslink and Railway Communication System programmes

As a Design Engineer within a multi-disciplinary design team, you’ll get involved in a range of railway schemes projects from feasibility right through to detailed design. Schemes cover all areas of the UK and many will include site visits and inspections and design for both new and existing structures (buildings, canopies, platforms, footbridges etc). Developing AutoCAD drawings; supervising and managing subcontractors; liaising and consulting with external authorities – all are elements of this challenging role. In summary, it’s a great chance to undertake design services between GRIP Stages 2-8 or RIBA Stages A-L in a successful, emerging design office offering excellent long term career opportunities.

To rise to the challenge, you’ll need a Civil/Structural Engineering degree, experience of carrying out structural inspections and an understanding of CDM regulations. We’ll also be looking for proven design experience using Eurocodes (concrete/steel) with any exposure to the railway infrastructure, undertaking Form 001/002/003 designs being an advantage. Ideally used to completing structural assessments for concrete/steel/masonry structures, the ability to proactively participate as a member of an integrated design team alongside Engineering Technicians is also preferred.
