Description

Eurostar is part of the Eurostar Family group of companies alongside Thalys. We are at the cutting edge of rail engineering, and we pride ourselves with working with industry leading suppliers and consultancies. Eurostar has two fleets of high-speed trains; you will have the chance to use your engineering knowledge to deliver innovative solutions and help Eurostar become Europe’s most loved travel experience.

Two decades ago, we changed the way people travel from the UK to Paris and Brussels forever. We are the only high-speed train that directly links the UK to France, Belgium and the Netherlands and since 1994 we have carried over 210 million passengers.

Today, we have created a generation of travellers who think nothing of hopping on the train after breakfast and relaxing in a Parisian bistro by lunchtime.
