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.
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.
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.
