Specialists for railway industry

Your direct connection to specialists

Are you looking for support in the recruitment of railway experts?

The future of the railway industry is characterised by rather dissatisfied customers, a price and competitive pressure, a difficult supply chain situation as well as investment needs. On the other hand, ongoing urbanisation and rapid population growth in large cities and metropolitan areas make the railway indispensable as the primary means of transport.

The railway industry contributes significantly to the climate-friendly shift of traffic from road to rail. No other motorised means of transport is as climate-friendly as the railway. And this holds an enormous potential for the industry. A stronger focus on rail transport offers the possibility of reducing CO2 emissions by around ten million tonnes per year, which corresponds to the annual CO2 footprint of one million people.

No one can predict whether we will soon be travelling around by Hyperloop. However, one thing is certain: Infrastructure expansion, innovation and digitalisation make the rail industry an important factor in climate protection and future mobility. And so the railway industry is driving both infrastructure and digitalisation projects – and often confronts companies with a shortage of skilled workers. Offering specialised recruitment services, Hays has the right solution for this.

Always one stop ahead: The railway industry as a high-tech domain with great potential for the future 

The railway industry is currently tackling several challenges at the same time. Apart from zero emissions, energy efficiency, intermodal connectivity and quiet logistics, it must also focus on digitally connected rail systems at international level and the associated cyber security.

Despite record investments by the federal and state governments in rail infrastructure, the right course for targeted implementation is lacking. Slow planning and approval procedures are additionally slowing the industry down.

In order to meet the future requirements of the rail industry, specialists must have diverse expertise

  • in digitalisation of the railway industry 

  • in infrastructure expansion

  • in IT sector

  • in innovative battery, hydrogen and hybrid solutions

  • in environmental protection

  • in infotainment offerings

  • in predictive maintenance or loading monitoring.
