The CEO will lead the Institution through its next, exciting stage of development.

It has been transformed in recent years – building on this is key to the role. The Permanent Way Institution is a 21st Century open-entry professional engineering institution with a strong customer service culture. It is tailored specifically to the rail infrastructure engineering industry and enjoys broad support. It is dynamic and fast-moving, providing excellent services to over 3000 members. Developing these services still further to meet the needs of members is its central aim as the ‘go to’ place for rail infrastructure knowledge and support. Its offering of professional registration for rail infrastructure engineers is highly successful and a major growth area.

The CEO leads a small but highly competent team. The role demands sensitivity to the needs of the Institution’s wide stakeholder base; individual members, corporate members, volunteers, rail infrastructure industry clients and suppliers. An appreciation of the rail infrastructure industry is vital.

Further information on the PWI is available on our website and from the Operations Director, Kate Hatwell (, 01277 230031). A letter of application outlining your suitability for the role and ambitions for the PWI plus a CV (not more than three pages) should be received by Kate Hatwell not later than 09.00 on Monday 22nd October. Interviews will take place in London on Thursday 1st November.
