Says Andy Milne, editor of RailStaff, ‘The rail industry has an urgent need to recruit new people, students, school leavers or simply people switching careers later in life. Encouraging newcomers is important. This is the category that shows we appreciate new people investing their careers in the rail industry. We wish LPA every continued success in the industry. Their support is very much appreciated.’
The Newcomer/Graduate of the Year highlights the achievements of new people from schools, universities and other industries seeking a challenging and rewarding career in the rail industry.
