It is well documented that parts of the UK’s rail network are close to capacity. Increased demand for passenger and freight services means that investment and improved processes are essential for a better, safer rail network.

Spencer Ogden’s Rail division delivers temporary, contract and permanent recruitment services across the rail industry, meeting health and safety demands and helping to power the future rail network growth.


From 2014 to 2019, investment into the existing Network Rail infrastructure is set at more than £25billion, with the key focus on introducing electrification, lengthening platforms, building innovative stations and continuing track renewal programmes.

1.7 billion journeys are made on the Network Rail Infrastructure every year – more than twice the number made 20 years ago.” London Underground has carried more customers and run more train services in the past 12 months than ever before – a staggering 1.3 billion journeys, demonstrating the growing need for a strong and skilled workforce.”


Crossrail, Crossrail 2 and High Speed 2 (HS2) are the major infrastructure projects that will be taking centre stage over the next few years, but these require a workforce and the demand for skilled rail professionals is at an all-time high.


We understand the impact that the influx of personnel will have on the UK Rail industry and the overall safety culture on our networks. Ensuring that you are ahead of the game and have the right people in your business to drive and support this growth is our priority.

Providing our clients and candidates with the most up to date information and resources for training, competence management, assessments, standards, rule book updates and current safety initiatives is all part of our service.

Our RISQS approval for 23 product groups relating to the provision of temporary, contract and permanent recruitment services means that we can meet all of your recruitment needs. We also hold primary sponsorship status under the Sentinel Sponsorship Scheme and help to manage the safety process and risk for network managers, passenger and freight operating companies, rolling stock organisations, main infrastructure contractors and more in the rail supply chain.
