Nick Rowe, Carrington West Rail Director and joint business owner says, “When we set up the rail team our vision was to become one of the leading UK providers of recruitment solutions in the sector. Our commitment to achieving this has resulted in us partnering with a stellar list of leading multi-disciplinary design consultancies, Tier 1 contractors and railway operators. I am immensely proud of the team and the high quality of service we provide. Working with organisations such as Network Rail on significant projects is something we are honoured to be part of. “
MD, James Fernandes says “We have a great track record of working in the transportation sector and it is an exciting time to be working in rail as we enter the next phases of UK rail infrastructure investment.”
The partnership forms an integral part of delivering Network Rail’s wider strategy to make improvements to the UK’s rail network to improve customer experience and meet environmental and sustainability goals during CP6 and CP7.
Technical recruiter Carrington West was founded in 2011, and the rail team was created in 2015 by Nick Rowe. The team quickly grew and today is a leading provider of contract and permanent design, engineering, project management, site management and trackside workers.
