Railtex 2023, the UK rail industry’s showcase event, calls at Birmingham’s NEC on 9-11 May
As ever, visitors can expect to see an impressive array of technologies and innovations, along with many specialised products for the efficient and safe operation of the rail network. On top of this, the event is a great opportunity for anyone looking for a change in their career.
Visitors looking to break into the rail industry or take their career to the next level would be wise to visit the Careers, Talent, and Skills Hub, hosted by RailwayPeople.com.
The Hub will provide a dedicated networking area for all employers, job seekers, and anyone at the start of their journey into the rail industry. It offers a space for visitors and job seekers at any stage of their career to drop by and meet employers from leading organisations in the rail industry. Careers teams from across the sector will be on hand to give helpful advice on graduate/apprenticeship opportunities, CV writing tips, and general advice on the rail career pathway.
Representatives of Network Rail and its partners on the East Coast Digital Programme (ECDP), will also be at Railtex 2023 to showcase ECDP and its benefits. Visitors will be able to see demonstrations of a driver simulator (showing the benefits of digital signalling from the perspective of a train driver) and the ‘Digital Twin’ tool that assists in the maintenance of digital infrastructure.
The Careers, Talent, & Skills Hub is supported by:
