Tell us about it... Even for internal applicants it can be a pain to apply for jobs.I have to say the NR application form is one of the worst I have ever had to use! It's terrible!
Up until last year those of us already qualified had to complete the same application form and assessment tests as someone applying 'off the street'. Luckily NR management saw sense and realised that too many suitably qualified signal(wo)men were being disadvantaged by the application process.
Trust me though, it still isn't easy. With these resignalling schemes in a frequent state of change people are just playing a game of musical chairs, but the chairs are getting fewer and fewer!
