You will have experience in the development of Engineering standards either relating to track plant or other interfacing disciplines (vehicles, tack, signalling etc.) this should include an understanding the ‘system effect’ of these updates and involvement with stakeholder consultation. You will have a working knowledge of health and safety legislation particularly that pertaining to the use of work equipment and machinery this should be coupled with experience of the track renewal/maintenance environment. You will have a good understanding of the classifications of railway machinery and have been involved in projects relating to the procurement and/or approval of railborne plant.
