What are the Best and Worst things about your job?
The opportunities to learn and develop. Exploring the entire organisation from the front line to management is really exciting.
Naturally, the railway is a big place. Sometimes it involves a lot of travelling which can get a bit boring. I always line up some work or videos to watch when on the train.
What is the annual salary for this role?
Starting salary: I'd rather not say
Current salary: I'd rather not say
What hours do you actually work, on average?
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
Really express your interests and achievements. It's fantastic doing so well at university, but it's the extra-curricular stuff that makes you unique. Write it down!
Do you have any interview tips?
The interview process is not something that can be rehearsed, which is great! Everybody enters on a level playing field and are offered the opportunity to show off their personality. It is important to remember that the interview is designed to find compatibility between candidate and company.
