As lockdown restrictions ease and we start to consider travelling again, the future of cross-Channel operator Eurostar remains uncertain.
Eurostar is seeking financial support from the UK Government, citing higher access charges here as a reason.
The French Government has pledged to provide support for the operator, while £200 million has been provided by one of its shareholders, Caisse de Dépôt et Placement du Québec (CDPQ) and Hermes Infrastructure.
Registered in the UK and supporting 3,000 jobs either with the business or in the supply chain, the company is, however, 55% owned by SNCF (French state rail), 40% by CDPQ/Hermes and 5% by SNCB (Belgian state railways).
So: Should the UK Government provide financial assistance to Eurostar?

IT / telecomms consultant with UK rail sector experience

  • Job added:   25 April 2020
  • Salary:   £600/day plus expenses
  • Location:   Nationwide
  • Job Type:   Temporary
  • Reference:   211993295
  • Company:   CV-Library
We are a specialist IT consulting firm working across the public and private sectors.

We are seeking an experienced IT consultant with specific knowledge of the UK rail sector to work on a major project alongside our existing consultants.

The specific rail sector experience we are seeking includes:

* Fibre and mast provision, operation and support

* How these function technically in a live rail environment

* Knowledge of the organisational structure of rail post devolution and Putting Passengers & Freight First (PPFF);

* The challenges and considerations of track side deployment

The ideal candidate will be flexible and willing to travel to client premises (when, of course it is safe to do so, which probably will be some time - quite possibly after the completion of this project).

We are running a number of client projects remotely, so for the foreseeable future we would expect that the vast majority of the work would be done remotely using tools such as Teams and Zoom.

If you have the required experience, please apply with a CV asap.

Many thanks for your attention
