Careers at NTS
Hear from our team what it’s like working at NTS
Rail – Operations Manager
The biggest part of my role is traincrew management including the management of competence. I am often out on the rail network carrying out operational audits and assessments.
I write and review Methods of Work for Operations in Yards or Sidings, and the Risk Assessments that go with them and carry out briefings to promote safety awareness.
Sometimes you’ll find me driving trains or carrying out train preparation duties. It is important for me to maintain my own competence and Train Drivers Licence for assessment purposes. Keeping my ‘hand in’ also helps me maintain understanding, build relationships with traincrew and assist Commercial operationally with new business contracts.
I’m currently undertaking a Level 5 Apprenticeship in Excelling in Operational Management.
You will often find me at Hinton House, Regents Court, a depot, or working from home. I work closely with pretty much all teams across NTS. Any one day might involve document drafting, legal advice, negotiations, budgets, work allocation, governance, collaboration, constructive challenge and stakeholder management.
My role is really varied and covers the entire business. I particularly enjoy business partnering with people to achieve an end goal – be it an agreement on a contract or the completion of a transport.
I also enjoy the short-lived satisfaction of completing a task – before moving on to the next one.
NTS is a modern and inclusive employer where people are proud to work and feel respected, included and able to perform at their best.
