As the IRO in Australia and New Zealand , we are working to strengthen the profession and support all our members in growing their networks, learning and development in the railways.

We are currently focusing three key areas for our members and for all who work in railway operations in Australia

Membership:  If you work on the railways in Australia or New Zealand, you are now eligible for free Affiliate membership with IRO.  Please click here – to join for free. Please select ‘Australian Subscription £0’ on the payment page.

Strengthening connections:

Whether you work in Auckland, Perth or Sydney, in passenger or freight, we want to make sure you are meeting others in the industry to share knowledge, stay on top of the latest industry advancements and build a strong network.  As a member, you will be invited to our regular events and participate in conversations about the industry and your career. We would encourage you to share your experience with newer members within the rail industry and to join IRO in Australia or New Zealand to help build these connections.

Education and Development: The IRO is dedicated to helping all its members advance their learning and credentials. As part of our ongoing work, we will be looking to strengthen the educational offering to rail community in Australia and New Zealand. More news on this at  our upcoming events.
