Technical excellence and innovation empower Arup to reshape rail engineering.

Arup’s skills encompass every element of rail engineering from high-level planning to detailed design and specialist expertise in signalling and track design (permanent way), power and operations.

Our rail experience inspires trust worldwide. We have been instrumental in complex and groundbreaking projects such as the UK’s High Speed 1; in extensive signalling and modelling, as for Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC); and in pit-to-port freight logistics. We have worked widely with rail and transit operators including Hong Kong’s MTR Corporation and New York’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority.

We also go beyond expectations of excellence to design technically creative solutions that push the possibilities in rail further. Whether for intercity, suburban or freight lines, rail systems are complex undertakings that require close cooperation. Arup’s long-established practice of holistic working creates truly integrated rail teams that produce better solutions together.

Our Rail Business is unique. Today we can provide just about every service that a client in the rail sector might want, but more than that, we can provide it in a joined up, integrated form that can give added value to our client’s business. This is in distinct contrast to many of our competitors and contractors whose rail businesses focus on narrow areas such as track and power, and who operate in functional silos. Add to this our creativity and innovation, and we provide a level of service which sets us apart.

In the UK we are now looking to recruit in a number of disciplines in our main locations of London, Manchester, Bristol and Solihull. These include; Permanent Way design, track design and rail systems engineers. These roles offer individuals the opportunity to be part of a local team as well as a global business, providing individual expertise as part of a wider multidisciplinary team.

Alongside a competitive salary we offer a suite of flexible benefits including private healthcare, profit share, contributory pension scheme and holiday trading.

If you are interested and would like to apply, please send a CV and covering letter to simon.stoker@arup.com including the location and type of roles you are interested in and we will contact you to discuss further.
