Afternoon all,

So I have a interview coming up for Network Rail for a Team Leader (work delivery signalling) however the job description gives very little away about what the job actually involves. Is there anyone out there who could give me a little more detail on what exactly I would be doing if successful. My work past isn't in the rail industry however I do have a wealth of experience in managing teams of people and working in a team. Also if anyone has any advice for my interview it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks all

PTSO or platform depending on the weather
I'm guessing you will need to know a lot about railway signalling and electronic engineering, on-site safety and the safety of your colleagues, particularly as you are likely to be out and about on the track in all weathers in a safety critical role.

You may be good at managing people but if you know nothing about the work you are involved in, then you won't have any respect from your workforce.

I expect the panel will want to know what experience you have that is specific to the role (other than managing people.

Never really understood why people apply for a job without knowing its details before hand.

It's case of having to apply for anything and everything. I'm ex Army and since moving up north have found it quite difficult to secure a permanent job. The job description was very vague and didn't tell you a great deal so it wasn't a case I didn't know the details there just weren't many details to start with.
