TRAINEE TRAIN DRIVER CV TIPS
Although you need no formal qualifications when applying for train driving roles, you will need a unique set of skills and attributes, and here are just a few of these:
• Be safety-conscious and able to operate under safety-critical conditions.
• Be responsible for your actions at all times and act with honesty and integrity.
• Follow and adhere to rules, procedures and operational practices.
• An ability to learn and absorb large amounts of job-specific information.
• Be a great communicator and be able to deliver time-sensitive messages to groups of people.
• Be able to work with people from diverse backgrounds and different departments within the Train Operating Company network.
• Take responsibility for your own personal and professional development.
• Maintain your own suitable levels of physical and mental fitness.
• Be able to react calmly in an emergency situation.
It is vital you can demonstrate these and other qualities at every stage of the process, including when you submit your CV, so make sure you work hard to demonstrate all of them! In our sample CVs, we’ve demonstrated how you can show these qualities to the assessors!
ADVICE FOR SUBMITTING THE PERFECT TRAIN DRIVER CV
READ THE JOB DESCRIPTION AND GO ALL OUT TO MATCH IT
To give yourself the best chance of success, you will need to read the job description thoroughly to understand the skills and attributes required for the role. Also, ensure you find out the organisations values. Once you have all of this information, ensure your CV is tailored to match it.
‘SAFETY’ IS THE MOST IMPORTANT COMPETENCY OF THEM ALL
As a fully qualified and operational train driver, you will be responsible for the safety of yourself, your crew, the passengers, and the rolling stock you are operating. On that basis, safety must be at the forefront of everything you do. Driving trains is a safety-critical role. Apart from being assessed against this vital competency during every stage of the selection process, you will need to demonstrate both your awareness of it and your ability to adhere to it within your CV. Safety must always come first, above everything else that you do! Furthermore, those candidates who can provide evidence of where they have worked in a safety-critical role already, and also followed safety rules, procedures, and/or guidelines, will find it easier to have their CV placed into the next stage pile!

UNDERSTANDING THE PERSONAL REQUIREMENTS
Included within this guide is a list of In the final section of our book, we will provide you with a list of sample keywords, phrases and sentences that we feel are a close match for the assessable competencies required to become a train driver. You will find these useful in your preparation for completing your CV for the trainee train driver job you have applied for.
Know what is on your cv
Train driving is a safety-critical role that requires specific skills, qualities and attributes, and you must be honest in your use of these, for obvious reasons. You should remember that, if you say you are good at something on your CV, you will be asked to back those claims up with evidence at the interview. For example, if you write on your application form that you are “totally customer-focused and will always uphold the values and service standards of the company” you will most probably have to provide examples of when you have already demonstrated these claims, during the train driver interview.
