Addressing the future workforce of the rail industry

Our Managing Director, John Hall, was featured in the Rail Freight Handbook 2019-20 Edition. It was a two-page feature where the issues of attracting the “PlayStation Generation” being a difficult challenge were addressed, as the innate nature of the industry means that there is a presence of hard labour.

However, advancements in the inclusion of new technologies within the industry are going to help change all that. 

There are also mentions of the new apprenticeship levy as part of the Government strategy to increase industry skillsets and productivity within the UK. This movement towards apprenticeships is about making a choice to go into vocational training rather than University; a more attractive option due to the increase in tuition fees and the removal of educational grants.
