    A career as a signaller

    I think a lower grade position is good at building up experience. I have applied for lower grade boxes in the past and been unsuccessful, so I’m just glad to be given an opportunity regardless of grade. Money is nice but as you said isn’t the deciding factor.

    A career as a signaller

    I’m an external applicant and due to start a grade 7 role in an IECC. That’s certainly a bit worrying. Was it a lot of trainees that had to leave?

    A career as a signaller

    Does anyone know what the failure rate is for a new signaller, I.e the number of people that are sacked as they are not up to it (either at signalling school or on the job). also how hard is it for someone off the street to get to grips with a grade 7 iecc with no prior rail experience.
