Military 2 Rail ProgrammeSiemens Mobility is once again recruiting for its successful Military 2 Rail programme.
Join our six week programme
Starting on 3 January 2022, the Military 2 Rail programme is an intensive 6-week development programme aimed at bringing military personnel into the rail industry and developing their career outside of the military.
Training will be delivered from our Rail Infrastructure business unit's office in Chippenham before successful candidates will move to their permanent roles. The training will consist of railway specific competencies and enhanced but bespoke basic training in a chosen discipline.
We value your skills
It’s always a time of uncertainty for military personnel when their life in the Armed Forces is coming to an end. At Siemens, we’re committed to helping service leavers make the smoothest possible transition to civilian life.
We’re one of over 1,500 organizations in the UK to have signed the Military Covenant through which we pledge to make sure that the Armed Forces community is treated fairly and can optimize their highly transferable skills. We also work closely with Career Transition Partnership , attending regular events.

Frequently Asked Questions
The selection process will include an initial CV screening process. If you are successful at this stage, then this will be followed by a conversation with the in-house Talent Acquisition (TA) team to discuss your motivations, expectations, etc. From here your application will be shortlisted to the hiring manager who will determine if they wish to extend an invitation to an assessment centre. If you are selected to attend the assessment centre and are successful at this stage, you will then be contacted by the TA team to discuss an offer to join the programme.
The assessment centre will be a 1½ day event. The first half day you will have the opportunity to understand more about the Rail Infrastructure business, the programme and meet some the team. The second full day will consist of interviews, and group activities to help us understand the best candidates suited for the program.
Up to £100 will be re-imbursed to you for the cost of attending the assessment centre. This will include travel, accommodation, and any other necessary expenses.
During the training element of the programme, you will be offered a daily/weekly expense limit for food. Accommodation and travel costs will be covered by the business.
Your evenings are your own time, aside from any homework or revision that may be set by the trainers, so this would be at your own discretion. However, we would expect you to be fit for work each day. Regular drugs & alcohol testing is conducted in the rail industry, so random testing should be expected.
