  • c2c supports Women in Rail and The Big Rail Diversity Challenge as it is events like these that help promote EDI and the importance of having a diverse and inclusive workforce

    Historically there has been a skills gap and lack of diversity in the rail industry which is why we want to remove barriers by promoting the benefits of a more diverse and inclusive workforce and tackling the under-represented areas.

    Our vision is that ‘we will be chosen by customers, and valued by our stakeholders’ and our mission is to ‘serve our community by providing a safe, dependable and affordable railway’. In meeting this vision, we know that our business and the service we provide to our customers is driven by our people. We simply couldn’t deliver what we do without the commitment and dedication of our staff.

    We will continue to develop a diverse workforce who bring a range of experiences and perspectives and promote a culture of inclusivity – where every employee feels able to bring their best self to work.
