Our Rail Safety team have had great success in supporting mainline railway projects and in the future are anticipating growth in metro system projects. To support a strong market demand and the ongoing development and growth of our team we are looking for a senior rail safety consultant to join us.

  • Act as a Technical Lead/Integrator responsible for coherent delivery of our programmes to our clients.
  • Support business development activities through stakeholder engagement and managing key client relationships.
  • Lead or provide technical input to proposals/bid.
  • Given the breadth of services and markets in which we operate this role will also provide you with the opportunity to apply your safety expertise in sectors other than rail.

To support these responsibilities, we are looking for an individual with at least several years experience in the rail safety domain and knowledge in a number of the following areas:

  • Safety Case development for rolling stock, electrification, signalling, ERTMS, high speed rail or other forms of infrastructure
  • Safety Management System development and application
  • Hazard identification methods and risk analysis
  • Accident / Incident Investigation
  • Independent Safety Assessment
  • Key rail safety legislation and standards e.g. CSM RA and CENELEC 50126, 50128 and 50129

If you are interested in joining the team please submit your CV along with a covering letter detailing why you feel you’d be a good fit for this role.
