Electricians recruitment agency listing

The role of the electrician within a railway environment involves maintaining and repairing electrical equipment and systems in trains, in signal boxes and in stations.

This page lists a number of UK based recruitment agencies with particular experience in filling railway electrician roles.

One of the most common ways to enter the electrician profession is through an Apprenticeship scheme. This enables individuals to work towards an industry recognised level 3 qualification, such as: a Diploma in Electrotechnical Services (Electrical Maintenance), or Installing Electrotechnical Systems & Equipment (Buildings, Structures and the Environment).

This role can also be prepared for by taking a college course, such as a Certificate in Electrical Installation - Level 1, which can help gain entry to an Apprenticeship, or a higher level course.

Many electricians who work for railway firms such as Network Rail or one of the various train operators, do so after a time working as an regular electrician.

Many electrician jobs are outsourced to small companies, rather than created in-house, although roles may arise within Network Rail etc.

Working hours tend to be 37 per week, although overtime may be required, particularly if there is an emergency situation that requires immediate work in order to help restore the railway to full operation.

Salaries start at £17,000, and can rise substantially with experience, especially in the specialised railway field.
