Who can you help?
Northern plays a vital role in the north of England by connecting tens of thousands of people, to work, leisure and education. Our aim is to connect people to opportunities by providing a reliable and friendly train service. We have made significant progress since we started but there is much more that we want to achieve and you can be a part of it.
How can you help?
We will be at the event promoting job opportunities ranging from train drivers, conductors, station staff and office support roles. Many people just see working for a Rail company as a job for the boys, but we have 100s of ladies working for the company and we'd love to create more opportunities for woman in our industry, the focus is to create a work force that reflects our customer base so diversity is key.
What makes you unique?
We have very ambitious plans to transform and modernise the way people travel, and we are looking for ambitious people who can help us to deliver the best service possible to our customers who are travelling across the Northern of England.
