Working Here



As a member of the TRA, you’ll receive an excellent benefits package. This is hard to match in the private sector, and stems from a deep-rooted belief that employees are entitled to excellent rewards and a pension they can rely on when they finally retire.

When you join us, you’ll have the opportunity to take on a unique and incredibly important role, protecting British industry. You’ll also benefit from:

– An outstanding pension plan, enhanced by significant employer contributions

– Generous annual leave entitlement: 25 days, rising to 30 days after five years’ service

– Flexible working

– First-rate maternity and paternity leave, and childcare vouchers

– A comprehensive benefits package, including season ticket loans


We offer the comprehensive, structured training plan that challenging roles deserve.

You’ll start with a two-week induction programme, complemented by comprehensive technical training delivered by a specialist provider using a variety of classroom events and workshops. It’s structured to give you the confidence to operate effectively in your role – and if you’re an investigator, to enable you to start reviews shortly after joining us.


The TRA will be based in Reading, just 25 minutes from London by rail, and a great city in its own right. Whether you’re a resident, commuting from outside or relocating, Reading offers a city experience with the enviable quality of life that comes with a countryside setting.

A tech hub, Reading is one of the top 25 business centres in Europe (FDI ‘European Cities of the Future Awards’ 2018/19). Close to Heathrow Airport, and soon to be served by the new Crossrail ‘Elizabeth Line’, Reading is supported by excellent high-speed transport. You’ll also find a world-class university, some of the best schools in the country, and thriving culture, alongside house prices and a cost of living that’s notably favourable in comparison to London.

A proud, thriving hub, supporting UK businesses and jobs: Reading is a fitting location for the TRA.
