Flexible and open: The candidate is given the opportunity to go around the company for the first 6 months and explore different departments, how they work etc. - you will learn a lot about the industry and why they are desperate for new engineers!

Each engineer will get a choice in which discipline they want to specialise in, after getting experience of each one (for electronic/electrical engineers, this will either be signalling/telecoms, or electrification and plant).
Be careful about organising particular placements as some people are too busy and do not have the time or much work to give you (get advice from other/previous graduates, use the sharepoint for ideas).
What is the annual salary for this role? Starting salary: £27,000 - £29,000
Current salary: £27,000 - £29,000
What hours do you actually work, on average?
08:00 - 16:00
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role? Application Advice: Be prepared to travel for training throughout the scheme! You will have a contracted location, however, the first 6 months require the candidate to be proactive in finding smaller placements in different areas of the company. Then the candidate will have 6 month placements.
Interview Advice: Gain an understanding of the railway; the industry, the customers (TOCs, FOCs...). What made you interested in the industry to apply for the role?
Explain how you are a team player: everything in the railway relies upon colleagues.
