At Northern, we play a vital role across the North by providing a reliable and friendly train service that connects hundreds of thousands of people to work, leisure, education and more. Our customers trust us with over 2,300 services every weekday, and we travel to almost 550 destinations.
But our vision is about more than just train travel. It’s about setting a new standard for customer experiences. And that means building a different kind of workplace. One that values individuality and celebrates differences. Somewhere we can work together, have fun, and get stuck in to making our customers’ lives easier. A place that goes out of its way to create incredible opportunities for everyone to grow, and be the best we can be every single day.
So, if you’re smart, forward thinking, passionate and full of fresh ideas like we are, you could play your part in making it happen.

Engineering experience isn't essential, but some knowledge of train maintenance would be useful. What's important is that you have management expertise, ideally in materials or contract management. You'll also need to be the kind of person who can make decisions when it really matters, and you'll bring lots of drive and motivation to the role.
