Train driver jobs

Train driver depots are based all over our network (including the London Northwestern Railway area): Birmigham New Street, Bletchley, Coventry, Crewe, Leamington Spa, Shrewsbury, Soho, Tyseley, Watford, Wolverhampton and Worcester.

Train drivers

Our train drivers play a key role in ensuring our services run as smoothly as possible. So, whether you’re a qualified train driver with experience of driving on Network Rail infrastructure, or starting a new career on our training programme, our drivers are committed to providing an excellent service to all passengers.

Creating a more diverse railway

At West Midlands Railway, we are also committed to creating an inclusive environment for all, and aim to encourage more diversity in the railway. That is why, we collaborated with Butterfly Books and other rail operators to create a brand-new children's book called 'My Mummy is a Train Driver', to inspire the next generation of train drivers (and its readers) to consider a career in the railway.

Train driver management

Our driver managers lead a dedicated team of train drivers and ensure operational safety whilst contributing to improving train performance and achieving customer satisfaction targets. Confident in making decisions and influencing business initiatives, driver managers use their own driving experience to help develop the skills of others.
