The successful applicant will participate in all available formal GTR courses and Personal Development Plans, and the Train Planning Systems and Development Manager will conduct all Placement reviews where these are stipulated by the University.
Ideally, a two-month overlap will occur with the present incumbents, in order to facilitate workplace familiarisation, a smooth handover and to ease the new post holders into their new role. The contract for the position can last from July 2020 until September 2021.
The Govia Thameslink Railway Train Planning Unit is located at London King’s Cross Station.
The successful applicant will receive £25,500 p.a. plus annual leave and other benefits including a combination of free and discounted rail travel (depending on location).
