Network Rail is on the hunt for new apprentices in Ipswich

Published on : Friday, April 7, 2017

2The company is currently working on its ambitious Railway Upgrade Plan and is changing the way it works with more local decision making, providing plenty of opportunities for budding engineers to get stuck into a wide range of projects that will transform the way people travel around the region.

 

The scheme is open to applications until Friday 12 May, offering a fantastic opportunity for young people and those looking for a career change to earn whilst learning, gain valuable qualifications and skills and build a career in engineering.

 

Apprentices are guaranteed a job upon completion of the three-year course and more than four in five (83%) of those who started on the scheme a decade ago are still working for the organisation today.

 

Owen Flanders was one of those apprentices, who lives in Ipswich and is now a senior asset engineer based at Stratford in London. Working on one of the most heavily-used freight paths in Britain, which also sees around 32 million passenger journeys a year, Owen started out as an apprentice in 2007. As well as climbing the career ladder, he has gone on to achieve a Master’s in engineering at the University of Birmingham, also funded by Network Rail.

 

Owen said: “I’d encourage anyone who is leaving school or wants to change their career to think about an apprenticeship. It’s given me a good knowledge of the job, and helped me to get where I am now. I’ve been able to apply what I learn in the classroom to real life experience out on the track, and this spurred me on to study for a Bachelors and then a Masters degree. I’ve always been ambitious, and the apprenticeship has shown me that I can have a job and get an education at the same time.”
