The 2-year Driver Training Apprenticeship Program comes with a permanent role and an opportunity to play your part in our brand-new future.

As part of the team of highly skilled Train Drivers, it’s about working on the frontline as part of our onboard team and alongside station dispatch and control colleagues to meet performance targets, stick to timetables, and make sure customers enjoy a true experience as they arrive safely at their destinations.

You don’t need previous driving experience, as our Apprenticeship program offers full Driver Training. You’ll spend your first 16 weeks taking part in classroom-based learning in either Leeds or Manchester, followed by a minimum of 2 years training in our depot with our full support as you develop your skills.

100% commitment is expected from you on this rewarding yet demanding programme, but the Training Team will be with you all the way when it comes to ongoing assessments and knowledge checks.

What’s really important is the ability to stay calm and to think on your feet in sometimes challenging situations. And because you’ll need to work a range of shifts, from the early hours of the mornings until late at night, plus weekends and Bank Holidays, it’s vital that you’re flexible and that you live within 45-minute drive of our depot. And don’t forget that our selection process includes safety-critical medical assessments that cover general health, vision, hearing, colour vision and drug and alcohol testing.

In return, you’ll discover brilliant opportunities to grow and progress to management roles in the future. Not to mention amazing perks and benefits like free or discounted travel, employee assistance, generous policies, regular pay reviews and a great pension.
