Inland Rail Jobs on Offer

The construction of the Narrabri to North Star section of the Inland Rail is bringing significant benefits to our region. Currently it is providing unique employment opportunities to residents in the North West with the Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC) and Trans4m Rail hiring local workers.

“We’re now in an exciting time. As major construction activity gains momentum in the region over the coming months, there are opportunities for local businesses and individuals to take action and get involved.” said Local member for Parkes and Minister for Regional Health, Regional Communications and Local Government Mark Coulton

“More than 500 people are expected to directly work on the construction of Inland Rail from Narromine to North Star – many of these roles will be filled by locals who have the opportunity to deliver a major piece of infrastructure that will provide long-term benefits for our region.”

ARTC Inland Rail Chief Executive Officer Richard Wankmuller said the use of local suppliers is front of mind for ARTC. “There will be many more opportunities as Inland Rail progresses, so we encourage local businesses of all shapes and sizes to submit their interest,” Mr Wankmuller said. “We need the right people and businesses to be involved to deliver the work on-time, on-budget and with minimal disruption. If you are a company, a partnership or a sole trader and you think you have a service that could benefit us, it is crucial that we hear from you.”

A work-ready program will be rolled out in the coming months and consists of rail industry training, a range of general civil construction units and site exposure to ensure participants receive a strong introduction to the construction industry.

Trans4m Rail are currently looking to fill a range of professional, trades, labour, operator and entry level roles, and further details are available on the employment opportunities section of their website. You can also sign up for email alerts for new job listings. Inland rail also has a listing of currently available positions on the job vacancies section of their website.
