Additional Information

SNCF Réseau, the subsidiary of the Railway group SNCF, in charge of railways infrastructure, has announced 2,800 hirings in 2018, mainly to compensate departures in retirement. However the company estimates a net job creation of 250 positions for 2017 and estimates the same trend for 2018. For the same reason, the company is also currently recruiting 1,000 employees, following a first wave of recruitment for 1,750 employees which took place from January to August 2017, including 200 positions in the Ile-de-France region. In total, the group expects to recruit 2,000 employees and technicians and 800 managers and engineers. SNCF Réseau invested €5.2 billion this year for the modernisation of its infrastructures: the "performance contract" signed in April with the government allocates €34 billion for improvements between 2017 and 2026.
