Nick Pascazio, Network Rail Scotland’s Head of Human Resources, said: “We’re currently building the best railway Scotland has ever had and to do that we need to recruit and retain the best people. The railway is an exciting and fast-growing industry and Network Rail can offer you a rewarding career whether you are returning to work after a career break, a school leaver, a graduate or looking for a change of career or industry.

“Rail travel is more popular now than ever before, with more than 96 million passengers travelling in Scotland each year and our industry makes an important contribution to keeping the country and its economy moving.”
