Customer Service Professional - Sheffield

Trainee/Qualified Conductor – Sheffield  

There's a lot more to this job than checking tickets. It's about creating rapport with customers and acting as the face of our business. With a mixture of classroom and practical training, you can progress to a Qualified Conductor in around three months.

Being a conductor, you need to know your stuff, routes and rules, issuing tickets and honouring rail cards, delays and other possible problems, which can be distressing for customers. We'll teach you what you need to know but it's at those times that the quality of your customer service, communication and dedication will be truly tested.

As confident in your decision making as you are under pressure, you'll be ready for every challenge that comes your way and no matter what hours you happen to be working that week (this is no regular 9-to-5 job).

If you're ready for the training, can be flexible about your working hours and will enjoy the critical responsibility and the opportunity to make the most of your natural people skills, then this is definitely the role for you.

You will also work towards the Level 3 Diploma in the Customer Service Apprenticeship qualification.  The programme is designed to enhance the your awareness of the business and the importance of the customer within it.  The qualification is an internationally recognised City and Guilds Diploma and provides a progression route to degree level qualifications.

We offer an attractive salary of £30,418 per annum, once qualified. During training, you'll receive £22,629 per annum.   There's a final salary pension scheme and big savings on rail travel: free TransPennine Express journeys for you and free leisure journeys for your family. You and your family can also get discounts with other train operating companies. Your job comes with all kinds of benefits, discounts and a Cycle to Work scheme
