Great Western Railway (GWR) provides high speed, commuter, regional and branch line train services. We help over 100 million passengers reach their destinations every year – across South Wales, the West Country, the Cotswolds, and large parts of Southern England.

We are making history in GWR. No other UK train company is seeing this level of investment and transformation to enhance the customer experience as we introduce more trains, more seats, and provide shorter, more frequent journeys.

  • We are clear about what makes us different – it is our people, united by a set of shared values that will guide us through this period of unprecedented change. It’s the way we do things.

    To realise our transformation and achieve our purpose of revaluing rail in the hearts and minds of the travelling public, we know that we need a strong, diverse workforce.

    We’re renewing our focus on gender diversity, putting in plans to attract, support and develop women that will help us become a better, more inclusive business.

    With the support of our Executive Team, the newly-formed GWR Women In Rail Forum – represented by men and women from across our network – will drive action to improve our gender balance and help get people talking about key issues.
