Graduate Engineer Analyst
Birmingham (Head Office)
Salary: negotiable depending on experience & potential
Virgin Trains is the only UK TOC to operate a fleet of tilting trains and the Fleet Management Group’s (FMG) job is to provide the right number of these trains in a safe, clean, and reliable condition to our customers, every day. As the Graduate Engineer Analyst, you will support this vision by initially joining the Data Analysis Team for between around 24 months to gain a solid grounding for your development into a Professional Engineer responsible for Engineering Change and modifications on our fleet of 125 mph ‘Pendolino’ and ‘Super Voyager’ tilting trains. This will include analysing on-train data, infrastructure data, operating system data and customer feedback relating to fleet issues and suggested ideas. In addition to this you will support the delay attribution process, energy analysis and reporting on the above data sets. You will also prepare concise and precise reports.
It is likely that you will graduate, or have already done so, with an accredited STEM degree that includes a statistical element. Preference will be given to those candidates with Masters level. We will be looking for a Graduate Engineer Analyst who shows initiative and ideally has some knowledge of the UK railway system and rolling stock. We will look to enrol you on the Railway Delivery Group (RDG) Graduate Scheme and expect you to attend appropriate courses and placements, some of which will involve working away, to enable you to gain Chartered status. Once qualified, the Graduate Engineer Analyst will be expected to be included in the FMG on-call roster.
You will need to be comfortable in communicating with all functions within the organisation, with our Train Service Providers, Network Rail and industry bodies. You will be an excellent team player to work seamlessly within an existing team. We’re looking for someone who will develop into a well-rounded engineer and able to think laterally. It is likely that you are highly competent in the use of Microsoft products including Excel. You will need some flexibility in terms of hours and work location but will be mainly based in Birmingham. Salary is commensurate with qualifications, experience and likely potential.
