A new recruitment campaign is encouraging women to consider a career with Sydney Trains as a driver or guard.

Female train driver and guards

As a train driver or guard, you will see Sydney from a whole new perspective, interact with customers daily and have the chance to pursue further opportunities within Sydney Trains.

Currently, six per cent of Sydney Trains drivers are women and 14 per cent work as guards.

Minister for Transport and Infrastructure Andrew Constance said the days of shoveling coal on steam trains is long gone.

“We are challenging more women to seriously consider a career as one of our train drivers or as a guard,” Mr Constance said.

“This is a great opportunity for those who want a career change, who are looking to get back into the workforce, or just want a new challenge doing a job that they can enjoy.”

Applications for driver positions close on 12 March 2017, while guard positions open on 10 March and close 26 March 2017.
