About Govia Thameslink Railway

Govia Thameslink Railway (GTR) is a dynamic and progressive company, powered by a great team of dedicated and professional people. We employ approximately 6,800 staff based at over 100 locations over the UK’s busiest rail network.

We operate trains on the Thameslink Route (which runs between Bedford, Luton, Sevenoaks, Gatwick and Brighton); Great Northern route (which connects King’s Lynn, Cambridge and Peterborough) Southern Route (which connects London, Gatwick and Brighton) and the Gatwick Express (London direct Gatwick).  

We are the largest train operating company in the UK (22% of all passenger rail journeys in the UK); managing 239 stations and delivering 273 million passenger journeys per year, with more passengers, more people and more trains than anyone else in the country.

GTR is part of Govia - a partnership between two world-class transport operators – the Go-Ahead Group and Keolis.

Please only apply if you meet the following criteria:

  • Selhurst depot must be within a commutable distance (no more than 45 minutes)

Conductors will be expected to patrol the train and be the face of Southern to all passengers; you will check tickets frequently and where required issue fares, provide regular information regarding the journey and any delays or disruptions and provide an outstanding customer experience.

As a Southern Conductor you play a key role in keeping the railway operational, you will be responsible for ensuring trains are dispatched on time and accordance with safety requirements.

Successful conductors will undertake their duties safely and confidently, ensuring our customers' journeys are safe and comfortable.  They will be experts in the customer environment of the trains on which they work, able to quickly identify faults and take action to ensure a swift resolution.

Conductors work on a shift-basis which will require you to finish and start early in the morning over the course of a roster, you will therefore need to be able to get to the depot for all shifts.

Finally, the role of a conductor is safety-critical. You will need to pass a full medical examination that shows your health meets the necessary standards to undertake your duties. GTR also operate a strict policy regarding drugs and alcohol in respect of our duty to run a safe railway.
