Do you share our passion for the environment and technology, and to improve rail to make sure it plays a bigger role in transport decarbonisation? Do you know how environmental and economic policy at the EU level can transform markets and have knowledge of/or a strong interest in rail? And do you have experience in influencing European policy? If you do, this may well be the job for you.

Transport & Environment (T&E) is looking for a talented and dynamic Rail Policy Officer. The EU has one of the densest railway networks in the world but Europe’s rail system is underperforming. EU rail is dominated by former monopolies, lagging in IT, not interoperable across EU borders, heavily politicised decision-making, and insufficient investment. Rail can play a role in advancing a much more efficient transport system; it also offers an alternative to vehicles and planes. If the rail sector is to play a big role in the decarbonised transport system of the future much needs to change.

Rail is a challenging sector to modernise. We need a Rail Policy Officer to support our technical and political work at the EU level to improve railways. We need convincing and compelling economic, political and legal analysis, reports and presentations to convert complex information into advocacy and media friendly material. We need to convince European lawmakers to set ambitious but achievable goals to modernise the rail sector. The policy officer will be expected to work independently within the rail team but with close coordination with team members and colleagues from other T&E teams.
