Case study

Network Rail

The Challenge

Network rail have been a member of VERCIDA for over 3 years and they were having particular issues around attracting females to apply for a role within Network Rail.

VERCIDAs challenge was to attract more female led signallers in what is seen to be a white male dominated job role to apply for signaller roles at Network Rail.
