Description

Australasian rail industry: skills of the future

The Australasian Railway Association (ARA) and KiwiRail invite young professionals who work in rail and their managers, as well as those interested in pursuing a career in rail to attend the Young Rail Professionals Forum to be held in Auckland on Tuesday, 18 June 2019. The Forum will be held alongside the New Zealand Rail Conference 2019.

The Forum aims to recognise how best to maximise the value, importance and qualities of young professionals in the rail sector. Specifically, the theme for this Forum is Intelligence mobility. Technologies transform the nature of rail jobs: are you ready for a change? Collectively, the rail sector must harness the right skills required for the future, to ensure the industry's viability and relevance.

The rail industry in New Zealand and Australia has entered an exciting period as a result of unprecedented investment and expansion. This transformation provides industry with the unique opportunity to embrace change and improve age diversity in the rail workforce, and we believe that everyone has a role to play in the journey.
