Jobs, careers, opportunities – we’ve got what you’re looking for

Welcome to Southern’s career and job pages where you will find plenty of information about our recruitment process and the wide variety of jobs and careers at Southern. We are a passionate, customer-centred organisation and, whatever job you do within Southern, your focus will be “making every journey better”. We want honest, innovative people who are equally passionate about customer service and have the ability to work together safely to deliver results.

Customer facing roles

Staff helping passengersWe’re more than just stations, trains and railways; there are a wealth of jobs that help us to support our 157 stations and the 2322 trains that we run daily. Our roles include Platform, Gateline, Salespoint Assistants and Customer Experience Managers and many of our current Station Managers started within these roles. Our train crews and security teams continue that customer focus, so we look for the same passion from our Train Drivers, Conductors, Revenue Protection and Rail Neighbourhood teams, all of whom have high customer visibility.

Service support

Train engineerThis part of the company includes Train Planning, Performance, Engineering (mechanical and electrical) and they all support our customer facing teams. Then there are Train Carers who do so much to prepare our trains and whose work has won nationally-recognised awards for cleanliness. Opportunities also arise in Finance, HR, Marketing, Procurement, Project Management, Safety, Training and Development. People in these areas support our staff with the tools to perform at a high level.

In essence we are one great team but don’t take our word for it, see what our own employees say.
