Hello everyone,

I am 23 and currently working for an organisation that is within the rail industry. My role, which is my first job as a graduate, is mainly based in communications and marketing. I have developed a genuine interest in operations and very keen to start working for a train operator where I can learn more and find out where my strengths lie.

I have missed the boat to start on a graduate scheme this year and really don't want to wait until 2017. I wondered what advice those of you who work in the industry would give to someone in my position? I am checking the careers pages of my local operators in the Midlands weekly but am not sure what exact roles someone in my position should be looking for. I have a limited knowledge of rail from what I have picked up in my current role and am unsure as to whether this would limit the level of jobs I should apply for.

Any advice you have would be much appreciated - thank you!

Have you checked on the Network Rail website? they seem to have a lot of opportunities open at the minute.

I would also ask to have maybe a 5-10 minute chat with your management team / manager and see if they have any advice
