Rail jobs for Wales

Transport for Wales is set to create 60 new jobs, as it continues with a £5 billion investment programme to transform the transport sector throughout the Wales and Borders network.
A major part of the plan is the development of the South Wales Metro — a multi-modal integrated public-transport network.
Transport for Wales Rail Services will be responsible for the day-to-day management of railway infrastructure assets, renewals and asset operations management for the next 14 years (starting this autumn), so it is building a team that will be based at its new Treforest Estate facility near Cardiff.
Simon Rhoden, infrastructure services director, said: “The South Wales Metro will revolutionise transport for local communities and improve connectivity across the region.
“We are currently recruiting for a range of skilled jobs in our infrastructure team and welcome applications.
“It’s great to be part of the on-going operations and maintenance of the Cardiff Valleys railway where we are transforming a network that will not only improve the lives of people in Wales but also offers opportunities for employment.”
