We are Virgin! In January 2014 we started a joint venture between Stagecoach and the Virgin Group as the shortlisted bidders for the new InterCity East Coast franchise. In November 2014, the eight-year franchise was awarded to the Stagecoach/Virgin joint venture company and commenced operating on 1 March 2015 trading as Virgin Trains East Coast.

We have invested in brand new trains and technology; 2018 will see the introduction of our brand new Azuma trains. Azuma is coming with more seats, more leg room, faster Wi-Fi, on board entertainment and faster journey times.

What do we have on offer??

We are looking for shunters to join the Virgin Trains East Coast team at our Bounds Green Maintenance Depot, near Alexandra Palace, North London.

Shunters form a crucial part of the depot’s overall performance and you will be joining the business at a very exciting time. You will be working a four-shift pattern, covering 24/7 duties.

Employee benefits currently include free Virgin Trains East Coast travel and a range of other discounts and offers, as well as a competitive pension scheme.

What will you do??

You will be working on our existing fleet, helping to marshal the vehicles for maintenance, or re-form them ready for service. You will also become familiar with the operation of the signalling panels, liaising with King’s Cross signal box, as well as operating Ferme Park servicing sidings where vehicles are also fuelled.

The Essentials
