What Roles Do We Recruit For?

Our rail recruitment agencies employ expert teams of consultants that contain individuals who specialise in a multitude of different roles and backgrounds. 

With major improvement works and new line construction happening around the ever-expanding London transport network, our offices in Brighton and Crawley take on added significance given their already close proximity to the country’s busiest rail lines.

Our valuable Leicester office provides a stellar outlet for industry specialists surrounding the Midlands and Birmingham area. This area now has added relevance with the proposed £80bn HS2 plans a high priority on the government’s agenda with Manchester, Liverpool and Leeds at the hub of the new Northern Powerhouse project.

In response to these upcoming major changes, Search has had to adapt and take on board everything that our existing client portfolio feeds back to us in order to succeed as a leading rail recruitment agency.
