    I'm heading to Chester on Wednesday. For the recruitment day! I'm really excited to down there. I was just wondering if anyone could give me any sound advice on what I should take with me

    CV?
    Cover letter?
    Etc etc

    Thanks in advance

    I would think the main thing is a few copies of your up to date CV, hope it proves a worthwhile day for you

    I know someone that went to a jobs fair at Manchester Airport and purely from his day there got himself a good job and that was 3 years ago, he is still there and loves it

    I strongly suggest a little research on that....

    Chester depot right? Not Manchester ?

    I think he's getting at the fact it is no longer arriva operated , now run by someone else a bit of research perhaps required. Good luck

    sure it will be Chester, my previous comment regarding "Manchester" was of course an airport jobs fair and nothing to do with where you are going, just used it as an example of how very beneficial they can be

    I did mean that Arriva no longer operate the W&B contract, things like that will be asked if you at the various stages so basic research is vital if your serious about getting a job in this industry.

    It's definitely not Arriva. My tip: do your research. Competition is high for jobs. You need to cover the basics at a minimum . Good luck.
