Area of Responsibilities



  • As an industrial placement student, your main focus will involve providing valuable support to the team in the design and management of rail infrastructure projects, for clients such as Network Rail, Nexus and Translink. The rail engineering sector is a rapidly growing field within the industry, offering a wealth of opportunities to learn and innovate. Your tasks will be diverse, encompass various technical aspects and give you the opportunity to witness the scale of different projects and how to take theories in the classroom, and use them in the real world.
  • You'll help us to deliver effective and professional services for a range of varied and high-profile clients. While you'll have a great deal of responsibility from day one, we'll give you the chance to take on more as you progress and broaden your skills. 
  • We ask that you are flexible on location as you may at times be required to work from other locations across the UK. This is dependent upon the needs of our clients and business. 
  • You'll learn from others and begin creating your professional network ready for when you graduate. There are regular learning sessions with our leadership team, opportunities for site visits to local projects and all kinds of social events that will support your learning and development.
  • Our aim is to welcome as many students back into our other programmes, be that another internship or potential graduate position. This placement is the stepping-stone to your future.
