“If you can dream it, you can do it.”
‘Transform the future’ – something our female engineers speak passionately about – is the theme for this year’s International Women in Engineering Day.
Each 23 June, we join organisations and groups worldwide in celebrating women’s vital contribution to the field and promoting engineering as an exciting, dynamic and rewarding career.
This year, we have launched a film, Just Like Me, to inspire girls and young women to explore engineering:
“Now is the best time to be an engineer.” – Tara Scott, principal engineer, track
“Find what you burn for.” – Rikke Carmichael, head of air operations
“If you can dream it, you can do it.” – Dorota Durazinska, project engineer

With so many career opportunities across the railway, “your passion can come out,” says Tara Scott, principal engineer, track.
We have locations across Britain and a huge range of disciplines at all levels.
In fact, huge investment in rail infrastructure, advances in engineering and technology, and world-class training mean now is the best time to embark on a career on the railway.
Our apprenticeships programme gives newcomers three career-advancing years that offer far more than an education. Find out about earning while you learn, qualifications and becoming part of the next generation of engineers.
Our standout graduate and placement schemes provide boundless opportunities.
Read everything you need to know about our graduate scheme, undergraduate placements and the application process here.
Our huge and vital operational function delivers the services that ensure safe performance of the railway, including managing the systems and processes that keep the rail network working. Their work encompasses:

We’re always working to excite future engineers about the railway.
Our new Awesome Railways resources for schools will teach more young people about careers on the network.
The Awesome Railways leaflet and animation tells children why railways are vital to Britain and why science, technology and maths (STEM) are so important to their development.
