Rail transport is vital for our continued success and growth through our many projects including METRONET to meet the public’s needs and expectations. Moving millions of people needs the skill and commitment of a talented workforce.

NCOs must be available for shift and/or weekend work as required, and work to a 24 hour day, 7 day a week roster.
What’s on offer?
