Nexus and Metro have joined forces with Newcastle College’s Rail Academy to host a full day of activities on Tuesday 9 October. To celebrate Rail Week 2018, representatives from Metro and Nexus Rail have planned a full day of presentations, demonstrations and workshops for young adults who are interested in a career within the rail industry. This will provide a great opportunity for many to consider their options and hopefully consider a career with us in the future. The day will begin with welcome speeches by three keynote speakers. These senior managers, who have been in the industry for most of their careers, would like to share their experiences as well as what the future holds for light rail in the North East. We will also be staging four workshops throughout the day to enable people the opportunity to understand the diverse range of careers but more importantly behaviours, approach and responsibilities. We are also planning a number of tours for a ‘behind-the-scenes’ look at a number of venues and these will be made available to those attending the workshops. If you are interested in attending the event on Tuesday 9 October and would like to know more, come along and join us. Registration starts at 0900 hours.
