Job Review
Graduate Engineer (Signalling), Rotation placements at Network Rail
at Network Rail

What are the best and worst things about your job? Best:
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).
Worst:
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.
Basic knowledge on electronic circuitry (for electronic/electrical engineering scheme).
