WE’RE HIRING, AND WANT MORE WOMEN
Are you railing for a change of scenery, love watching the clock and are keen to get your career on track? Well Sydney Trains is hiring and we’d love to hear from more women. The NSW Government has announced a new recruitment campaign to encourage more women to consider a career as a train driver or guard.
The days of shoveling coal on steam trains is long gone, this is a job for everyone. We are challenging more women to seriously consider a career as one of our train drivers or as a guard. This is a great opportunity for those who want a career change, who are looking to get back in the workforce, or just want a new challenge doing a job that they can enjoy. As a driver or a guard you get to see Sydney from a whole new perspective, interact with our customers daily as well as a chance to pursue further opportunities within Sydney Trains.
The recruitment drive aims to improve current employment levels where six per cent of Sydney Trains drivers are women and 14 per cent work as guards. You don’t have to have degree or a formal qualification, just a really positive attitude. It’s not your typical 9 to 5 job and you get to spend more time with your family. Applications for drivers close on Sunday 12 March while guards open on 10 March and close 26 March 2017. Applicants can apply online by visiting I work for NSW or seek.com.au.
