    Ah good idea. You don't have that one do you please?

    I don't like to chase but i'd just like formal confirmation so i can politely turn down the other job.

    Hey wils180... thanks for the reply. Managed to open it from my laptop.. don’t think it liked it on my phone. There’s so much uniform?! Silly question but do I need it all?

    oh right i see haha! and yeah there's loads isn't there, don't know where i'm gonna put half of it! you don't need it all, there are a few optional items at the bottom of the list in the shaded grey bit, you also get two choices of shirts when you only need one for example, but everything else you need haha

    Amazing!! Thanks TomCo91, congrats too!!!!

    Ordering my uniform? What are the points?! Also wondering why I only have an allocation for dresses and not trousers/skirts? Any suggestions?

    Thanks very much! Can't wait to start haha, as i bet you can't either!

    With regards to the uniform issue - I would probably just drop them an email on the address provided on the uniform ordering portal and explain the error. Would assume from that they've just set it to a female allocation rather than male :D

    No worries at all. Yes it does seem like a long way off yet but sure it'll come round quickly enough! May see you on the 20th or at some point that week - Who knows :)

    Thanks! I’ve heard it’s either Swindon or Bristol! I’d definitely prefer Bristol though!

    Hello both, and welcome to GWR.

    IF you are both TMs - you will do your corporate induction and retail foundations in Swindon, then the rest will be at the SPM training school. You will get a lovely excel spreadsheet type report telling you what training courses you will have to do, how many days they are and where they are a bit nearer your start date.

    If you want any information please feel free to DM me

    I think you can do it through clicking on my profile. The old forum was so much easier

    That's cool! I have a few questions re TM Training. Do you know if the training is just monday to friday 9-5? and do you know where paddington based tms do the rest of their training, i.e. not SPM?

    Hi guys,

    How long after getting your 'fit to work' certificate did you get your formal offer ?

    Thanks in advance!

    There is a training centre at Reading which is where I believe East region staff would go. Inductions still likely to be at Swindon
