What hours do you actually work, on average?
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
Be passionate about TfL ("every journey matters") as well as for the detail of rail engineering itself. TfL assesses people on different competencies such as valuing the customer, making safety a priority, personal development, team focus, thinking commercially etc.
Your application will only be decided by engineers in the assessment centre (final) phase, the first steps are more character-focussed.
Do you have any interview tips?
Be very clear and direct. Consciously mention factors such as safety, cost, customer-benefit even when answering technical questions (for example, if asked about challenges of automating the underground, go into great technical detail but also consider strike action and customer safety etc.)
