Govia Thameslink Railway was formed in 2015, combining four train operating companies - Southern, Gatwick Express, Thameslink and Great Northern - to carry out the biggest rail transformation in decades and create a modern railway that meets the needs of passengers today.

We employ more than 7000 people across the UK. Our HQ people are planners, project managers, people managers, skilled professionals and administrators from hundreds of different backgrounds and industries. The railway has always offered solid career prospects, but you might be surprised by how diverse our team really is. Our aim is to support and develop our people, whatever their core skill set. It is a dynamic industry, at a very exciting time.

We're committed to attracting and retaining talented people. Our communities are diverse and widespread, and we feel privileged to influence the lives of the UK's biggest rail travel population. It takes a lot of different people to run our railways, from social media to engineering, occupational health to planning and everything in between.

It's an exciting journey, with an industry that has moved on from the Victoria steam era to a time when trains are at the height of emerging global technology.
