Afternoon ladies and gents,

Out of nowhere I seemed to of picked up an interview for a Trainee Driver in the Manchester area - totally unexpected to say the least!

Theres loads of stuff here about interview advice and stuff about tests - but the email from Northern didn't mention anything about tests, just an interview. They even sent the advice guide for Interviews rather than the Selection Event stuff I expected.

My question is this - since Northern has changed owners, are they doing anything differently than Serco used to do, and if so what? If they're still doing tests, which ones are best for swotting up with?

My interview is next Tuesday afternoon so any help would be massively appriciated.

Cheers,

B

Northern do the Driver Manager Interview first; if you pass that then you will be offered a place on the selection tests. You will be given at least 7 days notice and practice materials if you are successful at interview.

Good luck!

The process has slightly changed within Northern all apart from the Drivers grade (At this moment in time). I also confirm regarding the post above it is...

Interview
Assessments
Medical
Job Offer

Northern usually gives job offers subject to medical, so you could be as pedantic as I am and say that job offer comes before medical
;)

I was wondering if anyone had any updates on the positions at Manchester?

I have passed the interview and assessment day at Doncaster and was told about a month ago that they are in the process of allocating courses/medical appointments.

Is anyone else in the same situation and heard anything?

Nope, same situation - spoke to HR and it seems they might be trying to shoehorn another course in late July but they are waiting for final approval of that; once they know they can start allocating people onto courses and medicals.
