About East Midlands Trains
East Midlands Trains is part of Stagecoach Group plc, which also operates South West Trains, Sheffield Supertram and Manchester Metrolink – plus bus services in the UK and the US.
Our Engineering department are the unsung heroes of the company, working 365 days a year 24/7 to keep our trains in great condition for our customers. We have three depots across our network, Etches Park in Derby, Eastcroft in Nottingham and Neville Hill in Leeds. The team at each depot are responsible for the different types of trains we run so each of them are looking for slightly different sets of skills.
We currently run an apprenticeship programme aimed at people wanting to build a career in Engineering.
Our apprentices in Engineering complete a three-year apprenticeship programme and then go on to work as full-time senior team members within our depots.
The East Midlands has a long and proud heritage of railway engineering and it’s important that we keep investing in the future of the maintenance side of our business – ensuring that we have the skills in place to continue our excellent track record in vehicle safety and reliability.
