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.
