Alstom is a world leader in delivering sustainable and smart mobility systems, from high-speed trains, metros, trams and e-buses to integrated systems, infrastructure, signalling and digital mobility. Our heritage in the UK goes back over a century and we are committed to working closely with Government to not only revive the UK’s rail manufacturing industry but revolutionise it through the development of green technologies of the future.
In January 2021, Alstom acquired Bombardier Transportation, the new business is now the UK’s largest private sector rail transportation group, with responsibility for supporting around 67% of the UK’s rail fleet. By significantly increasing in scale, we can play an even more pivotal role in delivering sustainable transport systems, designed and built in the Midlands and North of England.
Our Derby factory, dates from 1876, is the largest anywhere in Alstom. It is the only UK factory able to design, build and test trains for domestic and export markets:
Alstom aims to be a great place to work for all, and welcomes applications from all parts of the community to build a truly inclusive workforce. To support this, we signed up to the WISE 10 Steps and as part of our “Voices of Alstom” network groups we started the “Voices of Women” group, who developed several work streams to:
Encourage young females to participate in STEM activities:
Improve the recruitment, retention and progression of female employees:
Alstom publishes its Gender Pay Gap report annually and aims to build on the above initiatives to improve this in the coming years.
“Alstom recognises that diverse teams perform better. They are more innovative, understand our customers better and help us to hire and retain talent. By working with WISE, we aim to attract female talent to create these diverse teams and make a positive impact on the industry as a whole.”
