Subject: Apprenticeships available on South Western Railway
I’m writing to highlight a significant number of live ongoing vacancies at South Western Railway that could be of interest to your network.
We’re commitment to the communities we serve and currently have nine open apprenticeship opportunities, and a significant number of live ongoing job vacancies across the network – many of which do not require previous rail industry experience.
Those interested in becoming an Apprentice are encouraged to apply quickly as the openings, which always prove incredibly popular, will be closing to applications at midnight on Sunday 22 November.
The four-year scheme is geared towards developing highly-skilled Train Technicians and has an impressive retention rate of 98%. Each apprentice divides their time between training college and gaining valuable workplace experience, giving them the opportunity to learn while they earn. Successful applicants can expect to receive a salary of £20,577 in the first year, increasing to £25,306 by year four (plus regional allowance).
We appreciate that it’s short notice, but could you help us share the details of our apprenticeship scheme – and wider job opportunities at SWR – across your own contacts. To this end I’ve attached the press release which has further details: https://www.southwesternrailway.com/other/news-and-media/news/2020/november/new-opportunities-to-get-on-the-right-track-for-a-career-in-the-railway
We’re also sharing details of the two case studies from Nicole and Emmanuel on social media between now and Sunday:
We would be very grateful if you could share these posts through your own social media channels to ensure these career opportunities reach as many people as possible.
If you need any more information, then please do drop me a line.
