Project managers

With $155 billion to be invested in rail in the next decade, strong project management skills will be essential if we are to make the most of this period of growth. There is strong demand for experienced project managers that can navigate large and complex construction projects from planning through to completion.


Engineering skills are in high demand in rail and include design, construct and support roles across our rail systems. Engineers play a critical role in leading innovation and project development and maintenance, with a strong focus on technical excellence.

Construction and maintenance

The current wave of construction projects across Australia and New Zealand has ensured high demand for key construction and maintenance roles in the industry. These roles are essential as the industry builds, upgrades and maintains tracks, tunnels, bridges, signals, stations, railway crossings and more.
