Rail is a fantastic industry to work in, offering real career development and opportunities. We're passionate about having a diverse workforce. We want enthusiastic individuals with great interpersonal skills from all backgrounds to apply for this position and particularly would like to hear from women and those from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities.

We are currently looking to recruit Shunter Drivers for current and FUTURE vacancies at our Brighton Depot.

What we can offer you:

  • Final salary pension
  • Free travel on GTR and sister groups for you and your family
  • 75% off travel on other train operating companies for you, and leisure for your family
  • Discounted Oyster Card
  • GTR offers maternity, paternity and adoption leave and time off for prenatal care, as well as shared parental leave - all part of our commitment to family friendly policies
