London Underground have decided that the internal applications for train driver are not good enough, so they are going to look elsewhere - and recruit externally.
Word has it that management have ordered that at least nine stations posts are held vacant on each line. So that's 100ish across the job.
Congratulations to everyone who passed the SCRA assessment. If your name's in the Traffic Circular, it's time to nominate a position.
The Hammersmith and City line needs some more Instructor Operators, what with the S stock 'n' all. So, that'd be permanent posts and promotion opportunities for drivers, then? Oh no.
Did you apply for the SS3 posts advertised in the Traffic Circular?
There have been so few promotional opportunities in LU recently that last week’s Station Supervisor campaign was a much-needed ray of hope.
Management have a little ploy on stations - slipping in SS2s (or SSMFs) to work on SS1 stations.
The absolute cheek of it!
Remember management promising to create the grade of SA(CR) coach, so that all those Stations Assistants (Control Room) who have been coaching other staff in the role could actually get some reward ie. dosh?
Remember LUL management saying they would endeavour to fill all posts with internal applicants? Check this out. Yes, it's an external recruitment ad for duty managers.
