    Thanks, you too. I was also a bit confused so I also emailed HR and was advised that I would have to do the tests. I think these extra tests are specific to this role only so if you apply for any other positions then they will count your original tests.

    A career as a signaller

    Hi Questiontime, I had the same query as you. It looks like they are recruiting slightly differently for this vacancy. I have also completed the usual shl tests and they are currently still valid. The current ones have been taken into consideration for a couple of applications that are also...

    Hi High Dyke, Thats pretty comprehensive, I was aware that there was different types of relief but not exactly sure of the differences. Thanks for taking the time to reply, it is very insightful.

    A career as a signaller

    Hi Tom, Just a bit of info if you don't mind. As a relief are you there to mainly cover things like holidays, meal breaks, training and sick leave? Does this tend to mean you work a disproportionate amount of nights or are the shifts fairly random? Also do you have periods where you might work...

    Think it might be this one. https://iebsprodnwrl.omcs.networkrail.co.uk/OA_HTML/OA.jsp?OAFunc=IRC_VIS_VAC_DISPLAY&p_svid=2183970&p_spid=7001280&refsh=0 Is this post being readvertised? I am sure they were looking for relief signallers here a couple of weeks back.

    A career as a signaller

    I have applied for a few positions recently, the only one that had a different application process is the Grade 2 future vacancies for the eastern region. This had 6 questions instead of the usual 69. I think that this maybe because the recruitment for these roles is being done centrally as the...

    LNER Trainee Driver Jobs

    It is an SJT where you are presented with a scenario and you select the best and worst options, and they let you know pretty sharpish if you are not progressing.

    Trainee Depot Driver East Midlands Trains

    Is that the one where you have to arrange them in size order? If so I failed that one, I missed breakfast so ate three of the biscuits and couldn't complete the test.

    Where did you hear that? I have heard nothing. If there was a course in April you would probably know by now if you were on it. It takes time to do medicals, references etc. Also with the varying degrees of notice periods people serve, resignations would probably need to be handed in by next week.

    Thanks, and good luck. I take it you are for a depot in the northwest? I wonder if they will change venue depending on the location of the depot recruiting.

    Freightliner Various Trainee Drivers

    You are right, it is not first come first served. It is based on your interview score and vacancies are decided on business needs. For example, if you have two vacancies at a depot that needs recruits, they are offered to the two people with the highest scores, if they are not able to accept...

    I wouldn't be surprised if that course has been filled already. I have no evidence of this but I believe there must be a number of people in the talent pool that are not aware of this site or are not active on these boards. Therefore we have no real knowledge of exactly how many of us are still...

    Agreed, got to try and stay positive however difficult that may be. This time last year I was absolutely ecstatic, that has faded slightly, but I have to keep the faith. There was one other guy that mentioned he got a call in October @KeviWill Does anyone know how he got on? With the recruiting...
