Our trains and network are evolving to meet the needs of our customers now and well into the future. We’re continuing to integrate technological innovations that help us deliver a smarter and more sustainable network.


About the team 


The Engineering and Maintenance Interface (EMI) Team is the single point of contact into Sydney Trains for all core TfNSW cluster and third party (non-rail organisation) projects, providing project management and interface solutions. The primary purpose of this unit is to interface between Sydney Metro, TfNSW, External Third Parties and Sydney Trains ensuring the key stakeholder interests are considered and in turn ensuring no adverse impact to system or asset safety or network reliability and availability.


The EMI Team is here to support, guide and help external stakeholders (Sydney Metro/TfNSW/third parties) throughout the lifecycle of their project, from initiation through to handover.  The Team is also here to protect Sydney Train’s and Transport Asset Holding Entity (TAHE) interests, operations and infrastructure, and ultimately supporting Sydney Train’s vision to keep Sydney moving by delivering safe, customer-focused, and reliable rail services.


The EMI Team resides in the Asset Management Division within the Sydney Train Engineering and Maintenance Branch.


The opportunity


Right now, we have a 3 year fixed term opportunity for a Program Manager Metro Interface to join us in Asset Management to manage the interface for the Sydney Metro program, at the locations where Sydney Metro will modify or interface into the Sydney Trains network.


This key interface focused role also leads the client-side program management and co-ordination of the multi-discipline Sydney Metro project to ensure Sydney Trains, Engineering and Maintenance requirements as operator and maintainer are incorporated throughout the project lifecycle, and that the project meets the needs of the people of NSW. 


What you will be involved in:

  • Provide guidance to Metro, Sydney Trains stakeholders and contractors on Sydney Trains processes, standards, Safety Management System, guidelines and contractual aspects of applications and proposed works.
  • Manage, monitor and coordinate the review and approval of all documents required to be able to work in, and around the corridor ensuring that all works are performed in a manner that will not impact on asset integrity or rail safety.
