Asset Engineer (Structures)
Up to £40,000 pa depending on skills and experience
• Play a key role in our Civil Engineering team
• Join a team that’s right at the heart of our work
• Drive our ongoing success and keep us running smoothly
If you’re looking for the most exciting opportunities in engineering, your search ends here. Revitalising Britain’s railway, our remit’s as vast as it is challenging – we’re involved in some of the most diverse, ambitious ventures Britain has ever seen, including Crossrail, Europe’s largest engineering project. Add your expertise to ours, and you’ll help us transform the way people travel.
Our civil engineering assets include bridges, tunnels, coastal defences, earthworks and drainage. The newly created Kent route has many critical assets including tunnels, rock cuttings, clay embankments and a variety of coastal defences including Folkestone Warren. You will play a key part in making sure these assets are compliant to policy and process and be part of a small team of structures engineers. You’ll also play a key role within major projects in Kent such as Thameslink and Crossrail.
You'll input into examination, evaluation, maintenance and renewal of structures as well as providing engineering expertise on structural matters. As a key member of the team, you'll enjoy real freedom to take swift and decisive action as you see fit.
So if you have substantial experience of railway civil engineering and proven abilities in structures (in particular bridge) asset maintenance, this is a fantastic moment to join us. And in return we can promise tremendous career development potential and real opportunities to shine.
Ideally an Incorporated or Chartered Civil or Structural Engineer (or holding equivalent qualifications), you should have a sound knowledge of structures engineering policies and standards. An understanding of safety management systems and risk assessment techniques is a must.
Our engineers are second to none. Through our work, we deliver the projects that keep Britain moving – resulting in better value for its train operators, and an improved experience for the millions who depend on these services every day.
Network Rail welcomes applications from a diverse range of candidates regardless of background, disability or gender and is committed to creating a workforce as diverse as the communities we serve.
