Transport for Wales has announced the creation of 60 new jobs as they continue with their £5bn investment programme to transform the transport sector throughout their Wales and Borders network
A major part of the plans is the development of the South Wales Metro – a multimodal integrated public transport network which will transform rail services, local bus services and active travel.
Transport for Wales Rail Services will be responsible for the day to day management of railway infrastructure assets, renewals and asset operations management for the next 14 years with effect from this Autumn and are therefore looking to build their team offering 60 new jobs to be based at their new Treforest Estate facility.
They are looking for highly skilled and experienced individuals for a wide range of roles including engineers, operatives, administrative and managerial.
For all those interested, there will be an Open Day on 16 July at The Park Inn, Radisson Hotel on Mary Ann Street in Cardiff, running between 8.30 – 17.30.
Simon Rhoden, infrastructure services director, said: “The South Wales Metro will revolutionise transport for local communities and improve connectivity across the region. We are currently recruiting for a range of skilled jobs in our infrastructure team and welcome applications. It’s great to be part of the ongoing operations and maintenance of the Cardiff Valleys railway where we are transforming the network that will not only improve the lives of people within Wales but also offers opportunities for employment.”
James Price, CEO said: “Transport for Wales is transforming the transport sector in Wales, through the implementation of our £5bn investment programme.
“Transport is fundamental to the economy in Wales and as we develop our £738m South Wales Metro, we are providing job opportunities for skilled individuals in our Rail Services team.
“I’d encourage people to visit the website for further information or attend the Open Day on the 16 July.”
