Year 2 - £11,700pa (if the candidate is over the age of 20 at this point their basic salary will default to circa £14kpa)

With your great potential, we'll give you the experience and qualifications to take the North further,

We love the North. It's a vibrant, thriving place where there's more happening than ever before. To connect communities, people and cities, we are transforming the TransPennine Express franchise. We will offer faster, easier journeys and a step change in rail services: an InterCity of the North. With over £500m of investment to deliver (including 44 new intercity trains), we're all set to take the North further, expanding links and the economy. There's just one thing missing – you.

We see our Apprentices as our talent of the future and once trained they're incredibly valuable to the business. We offer a competitive salary and a supportive environment where you can learn from the very best, pick up some great qualifications and work towards achieving a Duke of Edinburgh Gold award, a truly ‘First Class' Apprenticeship programme.  On completion of the scheme, you'll have the perfect springboard to a successful career in Rail.

Our control team are the railway equivalent of air traffic control.  Based in our Regional Control Centre in Ashburys, Manchester, you'll spend much of your time learning the different roles and responsibility in this busy environment.  This includes paging out messages to our train crew, posting messages on our passenger information screens, and helping to our trains, customers and train crew where they need to be.  It's a big, logistical, fast paced operation.  You'll also spend time working in different areas of the business, finding out how a busy train company operates. 

You'll need GCSE, Grades A to C, in Maths, English and Science and you should be at least 17 years old by 31st December 2019. You'll have an enquiring mind and love nothing more than solving problems or fixing things, with good communication skills and a professional attitude. We are looking for people who are happy to roll their sleeves up, work with the team and make our business even better. You'll find yourself learning lots of new and interesting things but you'll have the ability and mind set to deal with anything that comes your way. 

To apply please visit uk.firstgroupcareers.com, complete an application form and upload answers to the following questions:

  1. Give us your best example of great team work you've been involved in?
  2. Tell us about a time when you followed complex written instructions

If you've got what we're looking for then you'll be invited to an assessment centre which will be held on Friday 30th August in Huddersfield. It's a thorough process but it's important we get the best person for the job, someone who will make the most out of this fantastic opportunity.    The start date will be Monday 16th September 2019.
