    Train Driver or Customer Ambassador? (SWR)

    As these are fairly new roles,I've asked these questions & nobody really knows. Training for most other roles is done at Basingstoke from 9.30- 4 roughly. I would assume this would be the case for Ambassador role also. 1600322007 I have always emailed swr & normally got a reply within a day.

    I see that a different role of Customer Ambassador 2 is live now with different hours & pay grade. Earlies & lates & rotating day off. Does anyone know if the original job has been scrapped for this role. At least there may be more job opportunities there now.

    Train Driver or Customer Ambassador? (SWR)

    That's what I read into it aswell. Obviously the customer ambassador role at Yeovil Junction is only 1 position so like you in your trainee train driver role it's just a waiting & hoping game now for everyone who 'passed' the online stuff.

    I've always thought that they probably do advertise internally. And the internal applicants get the jobs anyhow. By law they probably have to advertise the role externally.
