About the opportunity

Are you looking for a new and exciting challenge? If so, this is the opportunity for you. My client currently holds a principal contractor status working with Network Rail but have yet to receive the rewards of having that status. Due to this reason, they are now looking for a rail director to join the business and really help their rail division grow and develop. The role will involve Business Development with Network Rail, Pre-Construction & tendering as well as overseeing all the delivery. Their rail division is currently turning over £300,000 PA and they would like to get this into the millions. They have the in-house capability to deliver rail projects they just need someone to lead them. The types of rail projects you will be working on will be platform extensions, groundworks, concrete structures and bridge maintenance.

They currently operate at a turnover of £30M PA and are looking to grow in other parts of Civil Engineering. They are in a great financial situation with no debts and money in the bank. The owner of the business comes from an Engineering background and was on the board of directors for one of the largest Civil Engineering contractors in the UK.


It is essential you have experience working on Network Rail projects and have strong relationships with people in Network Rail. We are fairly open to someone from an Operational background, Pre-Construction background or a Business Development background.

It is preferred that you have experience working for a Tier 2 Rail Contractor (UK based) working on infrastructure projects.

Benefits and rewards
