You've got to be in it to win it!

Whilst we await news concerning the legislation required to formally set up Great British Railways, that does not mean that the transition team (GBRTT) is resting on its laurels.

As announced earlier this week, GBRTT is looking for looking for senior leaders working in both the rail and non-rail supply chain to join a new Commercial Partnership Sounding Board. The purpose of this Board will be to encourage businesses, particularly those in the supply chain, to input into the ongoing GBR design process. 

Whilst there are 10 places up for grabs, membership of the Board will rotate on a six-monthly basis so there are plenty more opportunities to be involved.

This really is an opportunity to have your say and to help shape the guiding mind of the railways.

No time to waste though as the deadline for applications is 27 January, applications can be made via the link below:
