Can you post the job description? Someone may have a similar job but called a different name and that may help identify the actual role.

The name of the location and company may help us as well!

I can tell you what I think it is... But AGA may have some very different ideas as to what a "Depot Protection Assistant" would be.

Depot Protection Assistant is exactly that really, you are responsible for applying depot protection to roads within the shed, which means applying boards/flags, and operating a switch which prevents the shed signals from being cleared. You'll be instructed by the depot manager on what roads to protect as the trains come in, and then once all the work has been done on the units you'll have to release them so they can be moved. Expect a lot of walking up and down as you place stop boards each end of units
*used to work at that depot so fairly familiar with that role*

One of the two possibles I was expecting, the other being providing protection to people who are not fully qualified to work that depot.
