Can anyone tell me how long it usually takes to hear back from northern after applying for a conductor role?

I applied in December at the end of last year, and was told I’d passed the online tests on NYE. Still waiting to hear whether I have got an interview or not..

TIA

Which depot was this for? My brother applied at the same time for Manchester Piccadilly and revived an email around a week ago informing him that the position had been put on hold for the time being

I applied in August and didn’t hear a thing until January. It seems to be a very random process unfortunately
Could be a couple of months yet then. Thanks mate.

Wigan depot mate. Didn’t hear anything apart from I passed the tests. Emailed them today though and they advised that they received a lot of applications and they will be in touch when they have got through them all.

Just be prepared in case they don’t get through all the applications mate. Could be a long wait for them to then fill the position before getting to your application, which is what happened to me. ‘Vacancy withdrawn’.

I just applied for an apprenticeship with Northern. Do you do the online tests only when they see you as a potential candidate since there were none during the application. Although mine is a Customer Service role so it might be different.

I applied for the role and then as part of the recruitment process every candidate had to take both of the tests which then helps them to sift through the applications.

Oh ok. So is that once the position is closed I guess they get sent out to people or something? Sorry, I am unfamiliar with the process.

Hello, I passed both of the tests to the required standard and was waiting to hear about an interview, I have also been sent the link to complete the tests again which shouldn’t be too bad as I have already done then.

Hi Ed, just wondering have you completed the verbal and numerical reasoning assessments?
