Direct Rail Services is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA). Since its formation in 1995, DRS has developed and maintained an industry leading reputation for providing safe, secure, reliable and cost effective services within both nuclear and non-nuclear related markets.

As a profitable, dynamic business with a £75 million turnover per annum and over 400 staff, DRS has sustained and developed critical UK Nuclear transport capabilities and supported the decommissioning activities for the NDA and UK Nuclear Mission. Whilst it has diversified into other services, its raison d’etre will remain firmly focused on the transportation of specialist nuclear materials.

As Engineering Director, you will provide technical leadership in the delivery of rail engineering services across DRS, ensuring customer satisfaction, safety and profitability. You will contribute to the mechanical and engineering requirements of the business, developing technical capability and delivering DRS’s locomotive and rolling stock strategy. As the technical engineering authority, you will drive innovation, provide assurance and ensure the flexible, efficient management of DRS’s fleet of locomotives and rolling stock.

You will have an incontestable track record of leadership and achievement in engineering, combined with the knowledge and understanding of delivering complex technical specifications and requirements in a comparable highly regulated environment.

The challenges facing DRS are numerous, but your influence, insight and judgment, will combine with your specialist expertise to add significant value to the Executive Team.
