I joined Amaro in 2013 and have not looked back. They are an incredibly supportive company to work for.

They invest heavily in their staff and believe in bringing people through the ranks by giving them the training and skills needed to progress.

About Rob

Beginning his railway career in 2001 working for Freightliner as a Shunter and Carriage/Wagon Fitter, soon after, Rob moved on to GB Railfreight as an Assistant Train Manager before progressing to the position of Train Driver.

In 2010 Rob become an Assistant Installer with Railtech, gaining his licence in 2012 before leaving to join Amaro Signalling as an Installer in 2013.

Since then, Rob has gained an Installation Team Leader Licence and worked as an Installation Site Supervisor before earning a well-deserved promotion to his current position as Construction Manager.

Rob works on many of our more challenging signalling projects including those awarded to Amaro via Network Rail’s CP6 Minor Signalling Frameworks. Over and above his office-based role, however, Rob has achieved his SSSTS certification, is an experienced SSOW planner and holds a current COSS ticket.

On a day-to-day basis, Rob’s key responsibilities include…

  • Monitoring, inspecting, and assuring the quality of works undertaken on-site, correcting where necessary and monitoring and managing non-conformances
  • Ensuring site works are conducted safely, efficiently and to a high standard, minimising the impact on the environment and operational railway
  • Undertaking site-based risk assessments
  • Ensuring arrangements for access, possessions, and worksites have been made
