Colas Rail is one of the world’s leading providers of rail infrastructure services with a great reputation within the rail industry and our company is growing at an impressive rate. By joining Colas Rail you will be giving yourself a real opportunity to establish your career within one of the UK’s most heavily invested sectors, with a company that is going places. We have a longstanding tradition of developing our talent and giving graduates the opportunity to take their career in their own hands.
We are looking for bright, enthusiastic people who are able to work both independently and as part of a team. There are three main programmes that we recruit for on an annual basis:
- Future Leaders programme - A 2 year programme that aims to produce high quality operational managers of the future.
- Commercial Graduate programme - A 2 year programme that aims to build our next generation team of Surveyors.
- Technical Graduate programme - A programme that aims to focus on training a new team of skilled engineers.
Developing our people is key to Colas Rail’s operational success and we believe that the investment we make in training and development is vital to maintaining our competitive advantage.
We are committed to offering training and development to ensure that every possible opportunity is available to our staff. 25% of our business leaders are from our industry-recognised Future Leaders Programme (FLP) and the Graduate programmes we run are equally as important to closing the skills gap facing the industry.
We offer structured training schemes for graduates and all employees are encouraged to pursue, on their own initiative, continuing education and training, particularly when this leads to vocational and professional qualifications relevant to their work.
At the forefront of everything we do. We have an absolute commitment to safety, health, environment and quality.
Profit is freedom. We look after our shareholders and guarantee that they see value for money and a profitable business.
Quality is key to competitiveness. We believe in delivering on time and on budget a high quality product, which we are proud of.
We have respect for our colleagues, our clients and the environment.
