LET’S BUILD A FUTURE
At Colas Rail, we’ve made safety, quality, and sustainability our legacy. Across every part of the railway lifecycle, every day, we use our shared values, culture of care, and daring mindset to impact infrastructure forever.
Now, we need more people to create their own legacy alongside our multi-faceted team – whether you’re at home on the rail or coming to our industry for the first time. Working at Colas Rail is joining a collaborative team at the forefront of its industry. But, more than that, it’s your opportunity to do work that leaves a mark – and rise to the challenge of creating the future of mobility.
What sets us apart is the way we prioritise safety while daring to be different. For us, they’re deeply intertwined. When you feel safe and confident about your role, your team, and your career, you’re poised to push ahead – to make daring choices, share new ideas, and exceed expectations.
From day one, you’ll be empowered to do your best work and encouraged to share your unique perspective. You’ll be at home in a team where everyone’s equal and approachable. And you’ll be in control of your own career and growth with training and professional development.
It’s a place where everyone is welcome, every day is different, and every opportunity is in reach. And a place where you can leave a legacy that lasts for generations.
Safe workplace. Daring culture.
