The graduate development scheme will see Network Rail working with the Civil Engineering Contractors Association (CECA) and the Association for Consultancy and Engineering (ACE) to create a cross-industry programme of training and experience for civil engineer graduates.
The agreement was signed by Paul Clark, Network Rail’s senior programme engineering manager, Mike Cocks, CECA’s UK rail director, and ACE chairman Graham Nicholson, at The Infrastructure Show at the NEC in Birmingham.
The agreement will allow graduates working for Network Rail to spend time with other civil engineering organisations and vice versa, providing a cross-industry level of experience.
