We are Keolis Amey Wales, the provider of Transport for Wales’ Rail Services. We are a joint venture comprising French multinational, Keolis, a leading global operator of progressive public transport systems; and leading infrastructure support specialists, British multinational, Amey.

In 2018, Transport for Wales awarded us the 15-year contract to run the railways across Wales and the Borders on their behalf. Our plan, however, is about more than just running the railways. We are creating a transformative travel experience around Wales and the Borders, one that will help shape the future of a nation. 

Our vision is to create a world-class railway that will enable Wales to prosper for generations to come. Delivering this depends upon the quality of our 3000 people and the environment we create for them to thrive and realise their unique potential.

As one of two Head of Drivers you will hold a critical role within our organisation. Responding to our Operations Director, you will be responsible for over 350 plus drivers and the direction, leadership and development of our Driver function. You will embed a culture of continuous improvement, ensure safety and efficiency are behaviours that are widely embraced, and you will prepare and position us for the ongoing transformation of the railway.

If you are a proven leader, with rail experience at managerial level, and are a comfortable communicator with stakeholders and staff at all levels, including Unions, then please read the attached candidate brief for further information about the role.
