London North Eastern Railway (LNER) is on a mission to transform rail travel for the customers and communities we serve. Our modern Azuma fleet of trains continue the LNER tradition of setting new, higher standards in comfort, reliability and customer experience. LNER calls at more than 50 stations along the East Coast route, totalling 956 miles including major towns and cities between London, the East Midlands, Yorkshire, North East of England and Scotland.
At LNER we are committed to creating a truly inclusive culture that enables all colleagues to bring their true selves to work and reach their full potential, as well as ensuring the attraction, development, and retention of a diverse colleague base, reflecting the communities we serve.
We understand the importance of creating an environment that values and embraces the contributions of all individuals, regardless of background.
Supporting initiatives like The Big Rail Diversity Challenge allows us to encourage and celebrate the inclusion of all in the rail sector. Women, LGBTQIA+ people, and ethnic minority groups have historically been underrepresented in the industry, and we recognise the need for change. By participating in events that promote diversity, we aim to inspire more people to consider careers in rail, break down barriers, and provide equal opportunities for everyone.
We believe that a diverse workforce fosters innovation, creativity, and collaboration. By attracting a wider range of perspectives, experiences, and skills, we can better meet the needs of our diverse customers and communities. Through our partnership with Women in Rail, we strive to support the advancement and development of women in the rail industry, enabling them to thrive and contribute to the sector’s growth.
