Scotland's Railway is a Career in the Making

All Aboard for the National School and College Leaver Show 2023

The rail industry in Scotland employs over 13,000 people. We're made up of around 150 different organisations and suppliers from across the industry, who believe a better railway for Scotland is possible.

From engineering to finance, business to IT, project management to procurement, ecology to planning, and whether it’s working on-site or office based, there’s a diverse range of exciting jobs that each play their part in helping to run, maintain and develop Scotland’s Railway for millions of passengers and freight customers.

Whether you’re a school leaver, graduate or apprentice, come along to meet our team and find out more about the possibilities of being part of Scotland’s Railway. Network Rail will be attending with industry partners QTS, Story Contracting, Amco-Giffen and Bam Nuttall to showcase the range of jobs and career paths this dynamic industry has to offer.
