Your shiny new office within the Metro Tunnel awaits

Your shiny new office within the Metro Tunnel awaits

17 Nov 2023, James Ireland

In our biggest recruitment drive ever, Metro is looking for more than 100 new staff to work in the five new Metro Tunnel stations. 

Applications open on 22 November, with Station Master, Senior Station Officers and station assistance roles available at Arden, Parkville, State Library, Town Hall and Anzac stations. 

The recruitment drive was announced on Thursday by Premier Jacinta Allan, Minister for Public and Active Transport Gabrielle Williams and special guest Geoff Jacks. 

Geoff has been with Metro for 51 years, and has worked at 240 train stations, including many that no longer exist.  

He was there in 1981 when the City Loop opened and has seen many city shaping projects being completed across his five-decade career. 

Station staff play a key role in helping thousands of passengers get where they need to go every day quickly and safely.  

As the search for staff begins, work is continuing at pace on the Metro Tunnel – creating room for more passengers, taking cars off our roads and cutting travel times to Parkville and St Kilda Road by up to 50 minutes a day. 

The Metro Tunnel will create a new end-to-end rail line from Sunbury in the north-west to Cranbourne and Pakenham in the south-east – through a new tunnel under the city, freeing up space in the City Loop.
