Job Description

ScotRail has played a critical role in keeping people moving during the pandemic, with services helping get key workers and others to where they need to be. There has been significant investment across the network to electrify lines, and on new and upgraded trains. This helped to deliver ScotRail’s highest ever score for customer satisfaction in the most recent National Rail Passenger Survey. With more than 5,000 employees, we are looking for people who are focussed on our customers, to continue delivering the best possible service for people throughout the country.

At ScotRail, we proactively embrace diversity across our workforce.

We recognise that we are under-represented in terms of women, young people, disabled people and people from ethnically diverse backgrounds.
