Railway Track Maintenance Engineer (Infrastructure and Permanent Way Team Member)

Although welcome, no previous experience is required for this brilliant opportunity to help keep a vital spark of British Heritage alight.

Our Organisation 

Based in the heart of Bury, we are the East Lancashire Railway, a lovingly restored heritage railway which journeys for twelve miles through picturesque scenery from Heywood in the East to Rawtenstall in the North.

The future is bright here at East Lancashire Railway. There is so much potential to be unlocked from our range of offerings, and as a non-profit making company any surplus is reinvested straight back into our infrastructure, including the restoration of our heritage traction and rolling stock.

The Role – Railway Track Maintenance Engineer 

Reporting to the Permanent Way Team Leader, you’ll work as part of a team of Engineers (and occasionally work alone) to maintain the track and structures to ensure safe operation of the railway.

You’ll maintain all relevant records regarding track condition and safety for the Infrastructure department, ensuring health and safety compliance in a safe workspace whilst identifying possible hazards.

Our Requirements – Railway Track Maintenance Engineer

  • Full driving licence
  • Willing to undertake training in track work and plant (if not already done so)
  • Good computer skills, with working knowledge of Microsoft Excel
  • A team player, with the ability to work autonomously using your own initiative

Although not essential, as full training will be provided, experience gained in either the permanent way, rail, or construction industry, would be advantageous, as would experience conducting risk assessments with knowledge of modern safety standards.

The Package

  • Permanent contract
  • Salary of £20,000 per annum
  • 28 days annual leave, inclusive of bank holidays
  • Free travel on East Lancashire Light Railway services
  • Company pension scheme
  • Plenty of social activities

You will be based at our site in Bury, working Monday to Friday 8am to 4pm with occasional weekend work required to ensure engineering coverage for special events.

All applications for this Infrastructure and Permanent Way Team Member role are to be submitted online.
