We have an exciting new role for an IT Project Manager to join our team in Glasgow on a fixed term basis for an initial 12 months.  In June 2023 Scottish Ministers took the decision to end the franchise agreement they had with Serco and bring the Caledonian Sleeper service under the management of Scottish Rail Holdings. Under the Franchise model all shared services (technology and people) were provided by Serco and were deeply integrated into the Serco business. 

There is now a requirement to exit these services within an 18-month period and transition all infrastructure, systems and business applications. To do this a programme of work will be established encompassing multiple projects.

  • Chair and manage internal and external meetings related to projects

Whisking guests from the bright lights of London through the night to the iconic cities of Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Inverness, and Glasgow or to the jaw dropping scenery of the west Highlands of Scotland around Fort William. We are proud to serve the UK's most remote railway station too, Corrour.

Caledonian Sleeper sets new standards in overnight rail travel, offering a choice of affordable seats, private guestrooms, some with en-suites and double beds, as well as our much-loved Club Car to around 200,000 guests per year.
