Hi everyone I have my assessment centre on Thursday, is there anything I can do before hand like are there any things I should be researching about network rails history for example. Also on my call she mentioned I will be picking what career path to take whilst at the assessment centre like track engineer or overhead lines etc. Where can I do some research on them and what sort of questions are there in the interview that aren’t scenario based? Thanks in advance

Definitely research what role you want and have a few reasons ready why you’d like the role and why you think it will suit you. In the interview they will get you to tell you something about yourself, hobbies etc. And then some questions more specific to the role e.g. how do you feel about working at heights, have you got any experience working with electrics or working outside, nights etc etc. It’s mostly scenario based and they are big on health and safety

Thanks for the help guys 🙌🏼 what’s the girls to boys ratio like? Guessing mainly lads? And does anyone know if there’s a certain amount of people successful from each day like 2 from one group for example?

Yeah majority lads, it’s works by the depots bidding for apprentices in different fields. So if you go for a bigger/busier depot there will be more places available, they take on 300 apprentices a year in two blocks so 150 start in September. I’d imagine most of those places go down south

Okay thanks I’m applying for what i think is a less busy / big depot so means less apprentice jobs given but less people to compete with I guess?

Just got my contract today, but I only had to wait a week. I hope I can get everything done in July, August is quite busy for me and I want the peace of mind, knowing I've got the position.
