Milton Keynes

The Power Systems team have an opportunity for an Engineer to provide technical engineering input, support and advice related to traction power systems and/or electromagnetic compatibility (EMC). 

The successful candidate will support and provide advice on the design, modification and assessment of the ac. and dc. traction power systems when operated with new or modified timetables and/or the EMC interfaces with rolling stock, signalling and telecoms equipment.

In addition, you will have the opportunity to be involved in national and international Research and Development projects focused on innovative (including renewable) power sources, improving energy efficiency of the railway, improving reliability and design aspects of the traction power systems, as well as, EMC investigation and assurance.

The successful candidate should demonstrate a good knowledge of electrical power systems and will ideally have a sound level of simulation and mathematical modelling skills (such as Matlab, Fortran), as well as, the capability of carrying out test data analysis for testing on the traction system and testing for EMC purposes. Knowledge of, or interest in, traction power system analysis, short circuit analysis, protection studies, harmonic studies, electromagnetic compatibility analysis or similar activities would be advantageous. 

Network Rail is committed to the wellbeing of its employees. In addition to rewarding careers, we offer excellent benefits, are sensitive to work-life balance and encourage volunteer days.

Network Rail has the fastest growing railway in Europe and there are more people travelling by rail today than at any point since the 1920s. In fact, there are now a million more trains running every year than there were just five years ago.

Britain relies on rail. We operate 20,000 miles of track, 40,000 bridges, tunnels and viaducts, 17 major stations, 8,200 commercial properties and 2,500 stations leased to train operators.  Every day Network Rail gets 3 million people to their destination and thousands of tonnes of goods moved around the country. Rail is a greener and safer mode of transport so it's no surprise that our railway has seen passenger numbers increase more than 40% in the past decade alone. These numbers are expected to double by 2034. That means we have to run more trains, more often and more efficiently. And we need even more talented people on board to efficiently meet that challenge.

Our future is equally bright. We're in the midst of the largest expansion of our network since the railway boom of the 19th Century. This is one of the most exciting periods in the history of the railway. And you could be right at the heart of it.

To keep up with our growing network, we need to ensure that we’re always looking for the best and brightest candidates to join us. If you’re ready to shine, ready to launch a career where you’ll see real impact on the UK’s rail industry, and ready to challenge yourself with the support of Network Rail, take a look at what our scheme can offer you.
