Our commitment to the rail sector goes beyond general staffing. That’s why we created MDA Rail - a division dedicated to supporting the industry.

A strong rail infrastructure forms the backbone for so many industries in the UK, and requires talented people to drive it forward into growth and improvement.

Millbank are committed to supporting the development of the rail industry, which is why for 20 years we’ve delivered key services through our highly respected specialist division – MDA Rail.

Our MDA Rail division is split into three parts: Recruitment; Isolation and Possession Planning and Management; and Training.


Rail is one of the key industries served by our dedicated technical recruitment teams. More than just recruitment, our internal expertise in providing specialist services to the rail industry sets us apart from the general staffing businesses operating in this sector.

We provide bespoke resourcing services to some of the biggest rail operators and engineering businesses in the UK. Whether permanent or contract, we match the best candidates to their ideal roles.
