Shorterm backs Rail Manager Award

Shorterm Group, specialists in recruitment and technical support services for the engineering industry, is proud to be sponsoring Rail Manager of the Year at the RailStaff Awards 2014.

Steve Gallucci, CEO at Shorterm Group says, ‘We are proud to be sponsoring this prestigious award. With over 35 years experience of supporting the rail industry we are all too aware of the value outstanding frontline managers bring to the day to day performance of the network.’

An accredited provider under RISQS (formerly Link-up), Shorterm provides managers, engineers, safety critical and support staff across a wide range of rail projects throughout the UK.

In addition the company is also the leading provider of engineering staff to the rolling stock sector.

Says Asif Ahmed, Director, Rail Media, ‘People who understand what the rail industry needs – where and when in terms of staff – add real value to the ever increasing portfolio of projects and organisations taking forward an expanded, better performing network.

I am delighted Shorterm is supporting this top award. Railway managers face a unique set of challenges as passenger loadings increase, freight volumes grow and more capital is invested in expanding capacity. Making it all happen is the responsibility of us all but the onus of meeting budgets and deadlines falls on front line managers.

It is a hard task and the RailStaff Awards goes some way to recognising these often misunderstood heroes. Thank you Shorterm.’

Shorterm is a service led, customer focused organisation that is committed to continuous development of rail managers, engineers and staff at all levels.

With extensive rail engineering expertise Shorterm is able to provide a dynamic and innovative service to its clients, and is perfectly placed to undertake small or large projects efficiently, professionally and most importantly, safely.

Shorterm Group’s diverse rail offering includes:

  • Permanent Way Engineering
  • Signalling & Telecoms Engineering
  • Rail Welding & Grinding
  • Rolling Stock Technicians
  • Depot & Fleet Management
  • Rolling Stock Design Engineers
  • Overhead Line Electrification


  • Safety Critical Personnel

• Electrical & Mechanical Engineering • Rail Training & Assessment Services.

Lawrence Dobie, Shorterm Group’s Director of Rail says, ‘The RailStaff Awards 2014 will be a wonderful celebration of the extraordinary men and women who make the rail industry a success. Outstanding managers are key to that success. At Shorterm Group we continue to rise to the challenge of providing the rail industry with the skilled people it needs to grow. I am proud that we are sponsoring Rail Manager of the Year.’
