Engineering opportunities ahead of Metro expansion

Ahead of a major network expansion, the operator of West Midlands Metro continues to step up its recruitment activity and is now looking to fill six engineering roles.

Midland Metro Limited currently has vacancies for an Electrical Engineer, Rail Services Engineer, Maintenance Team Leader, Infrastructure Maintenance Planner, Infrastructure Technician and Reliability Technician.

Claire Scrimshire, Metro’s Head of HR, explained: “As we plan for the opening of extensions to Wolverhampton Railway Station and Edgbaston later this year, we’re looking to recruit talented engineers for a variety of roles requiring differing levels of experience.

“The opening of the extensions are part of a wider £1.3 billion investment programme by West Midlands Combined Authority and Transport for West Midlands that will see further expansion in the years ahead, making this the ideal time to join our dynamic and committed team.”

All advertised roles offer competitive salaries and a benefit package that includes free travel on the Metro and bus for successful candidates and their partner, pension, life insurance and discounted gym membership and car servicing.
