At Northern, we play a vital role across the North by providing a reliable and friendly train service that helps hundreds of thousands of people to go do their thing every day. And when it comes to our people, we’ve created the kind of diverse working environment that strives to represent the communities we serve. That means we could have an opportunity for you - whoever you are and whatever your thing is.
It’s all about being better and doing better. Here, we value individuality, and we love working together and having fun. We’re also investing in the latest tech and working hard to modernise the way we do things, which means it’s an exciting place to be.
So, whatever your thing is, the possibilities are truly endless. All that’s left is for you to join us - and go do it.
Everything you need to learn, develop and grow
Whatever you want from your career, we’ll invest in you to help you achieve it. You could be looking for a placement year that gives you hands on experience. Or you could be looking for an Apprenticeship in Driving, Conducting, Engineering, or even Rail Operations. Or you could have your sights set on something else entirely.
Either way, we offer loads of training, in-depth inductions, and everything you need to help you learn, develop and grow. Our office roles also come with flexibility, and our front-line roles work in shifts. All so you can find a work-life balance that suits you.
