With over 1.5 Billion passenger journeys annually, the UK rail industry accounts for over 20% of passenger journeys within the UK. With significant further investment expected within the sector, owing largely to the creation of the High-Speed Rail 2 project as well as major electrification works across the country, the sector is seeing unprecedented demand. There has never been a better time to work within the Rail Manufacturing sector.
Key industry players operating in the UK:
Network Rail, Bombardier, Siemens Rail, Hitachi Rail, Atkins, Alstom Transport, Crossrail, HS2, Wabtec Rail
