Alstom

Description

Employing 6,000 people within the UK & Ireland, we are the leading supplier of new trains and train services, and a leading signalling and rail infrastructure provider. Alstom have built, or are building, just under 40% of the UK mainline train fleet; as well as the entire fleets in service with London Underground and Dublin Luas.

We design and build trains at Derby, the UK’s largest train factory; and operate major sites at Widnes, Crewe, Ilford and Plymouth, and 30 train services depots across the UK and Ireland.

Now we are also part of a joint venture to design, build, and maintain the next generation of very high speed trains for HS2, delivering Europe’s fastest operational train, capable of operating at maximum speeds of 225mph (360 km/h). The fleet will be 100% electric and be one of the world’s most energy efficient very high speed trains with aerodynamic design, regenerative power and the latest energy efficient traction technology.

Our Signalling and infrastructure business is underpinned by the winning of framework contracts for 2 of Network Rail’s 5 regions, with a potential value of £750 million for projects across the Southern and Eastern regions. Recently we have helped deliver the underground section of London’s Crossrail, the large Bristol Area Signalling Renewals and Enhancement project and the Leeds Station Capacity Upgrade programme.

People are our greatest asset

The development and career management of our people is critical to the success and growth of Alstom. Talent Management refers to our ability to identify and develop the full potential of our people, foster engagement and boost performance to reach Alstom’s goals.

Agile, Inclusive and Responsible

We are defined by three strong values and very strict ethical rules. We cannot be efficient if we do not work as a team. We do not deserve to have customers if we are not worthy of their trust.

To implement our strategy, we must also reflect the diversity, nationality and culture of our customers and the passengers who use our trains. Diverse nationalities, cultures and mindsets make for a stronger workforce and a diverse internal culture is fundamental for fostering efficiency.

Our HR policy is founded on key concepts that include equal opportunity, respect for diversity, dialogue, as well as health and safety.

As a 'Disability Confident' employer, we will interview all disabled job applicants who match the essential criteria of the job description or specification: if you require any reasonable adjustments, please let us know.
