    I am booking my PTS/track induction courses tomorrow I want to find out from people working in the industry if there is an over supply of people doing the job? Or is it a good time to get in and knuckle down and work my way up with time under my belt.

    I’m based on Merseyside and would be willing to travel anywhere for the work.

    Thanks

    That sounds promising, obviously the trainers are saying there is loads jobs/opportunities etc however I wanted to hear it from people working in the industry.

    I am 33 so having to fund the courses myself. Is there any contractors that I should approach to be my sponsor that are currently looking for trainees ?

    thanks
    Alex

    don’t think you will have any problems at 33 mate just depends on your physical fitness don’t get me wrong you don’t need to have a six pack

    Try contractors too as some one said try Network Rail but they are hard to get into you might get lucky with first go but would defo consider contractors in your area.

    Good luck
