Level Crossing Safety Manager at Network Rail

How to become a Level Crossing Safety Manager

There are many entry routes into a career in engineering, including studying for a degree at university or doing an apprenticeship.

You could start out as an apprentice in the rail industry. In the course of your apprenticeship you’ll learn safety procedures and may complete a qualification in person track safety (PTS), which could then lead onto another qualification in level crossing safety. This in turn could lead to a position as a level crossing attendant. From there, you can work your way up to becoming a level crossing safety manager.

If you choose to study at university (a mechanical engineering degree would be particularly useful for this role) it will help your application if you have relevant work experience in the railway industry. Engineering-based roles can help you develop the mechanical engineering skills that are so important for this role.
