If you’ve ever fancied a well-paid job as a train driver, then Govia Thameslink Railway is seeking more train drivers – and says it now has 160 vacancies across the four railway services that it operates across the south-east.
Open to anyone above the age of 21, there’s an 18-month training programme, with a trainee salary of around £32,000, across the Thameslink, Southern, Great Northern and Gatwick Express services. The salary roughly doubles once a driver qualifies to around £63,000 per year.
The company said that it hopes to continue to attract more women to the industry, as well as a diverse range of candidates from all ages and walks of life that may have never considered a career in rail before.
