Delivering community benefits
through our work

Finding tomorrow’s railway people today

We are about supporting the communities we serve, helping under-represented people, backing local charities which make a difference to so many people, and inspiring the generation of tomorrow to build them into future rail industry leaders, managers, engineers, technicians and back office personnel.

We have a strong and effective social value policy in place to do all of that, and we are always looking at how we can do more.

Inspiring tomorrow's leaders wider personnel

With 120,000 people needed to work in the railway industry over the next ten years, we are working hard to attract the TRS colleagues of tomorrow.

We’re working collaboratively with educational institutions across the UK to not only speak to younger people at both primary and secondary levels and inspire them to consider a career, but also to give them real experience of working on the frontline with training provided.

Supporting colleagues and the community

We have a strong sense of duty to support charities - making a difference to the communities we serve, while also creating partnerships with organisations that can provide vital support, especially from a mental health and wellbeing perspective.

As well as a signatory of the Armed Forces Covenant and encouraging those from military backgrounds to consider a rail career, we also support the Royal British Legion.

From a mental wellbeing perspective, we have partnered with Mates in Mind to provide support to all colleagues, supply chain partners and our customers.

Creating opportunities for our local supply chain partners

Wherever we are working in the UK, our team works hard to ensure that we are providing local jobs for local people – whether that is employing them ourselves or working with small to medium enterprises (SMEs) and other supply chain partners to provide them with specialist roles.

As an SME ourselves, we understand the challenges businesses face and, as a company working with tier one contractors with SME action plans in place, we support our customers to make sure those action plans are realised.

Inclusivity at every level

Working with under-represented groups and communities in rail is essential in improving the diversity of our workforce. It encourages better ways of thinking and working for the betterment of the industry

We work towards equality across our business, with clear career progression paths so everyone knows what is available.

We have programmes to encourage women and those from BAME communities to consider a career in rail, both in the office and on the frontline, and set out clear development opportunities to inspire them to consider a career in what is often recognised as a male-dominated industry.
