Hi Folks, I'm currently considering applying for the above and I'm beginning to research the role. It would be good to hear what the job is actually like from persons who have been or are currently in that role. Through a previous career, I'm well used to hard graft and being exposed to all the outdoor elements. Is there scope for progression into other roles and what are Network Rail like as an employer? Id be taking a significant pay cut, so I don't want to change career to something that won't lead anywhere. I'm also currently on a reserve list for a Trainee Train Driver role with a TOC having passed the 1st stage assessments and DMI, but due to there being no vacancies I'm unable to progress to the stage 2 assessments. We're I to be successful, would it be detrimental to the Train Driver route? Many thanks.
