Applying For Our Roles Applying For Our Roles So, you want to get a job with East Midlands Trains? That’s great news. We’ve obviously done a great job telling you what a fantastic team we are. So what are we looking for and what hoops are we going to ask you to jump through to get a job with us? Well the good news is we don’t ask you to jump through any hoops, (although flexibility in most of our roles is a desired asset, our lawyers told us that hoop jumping is generally frowned upon.) We’ll ask you to complete an application form, so that we can get to know you better, and we will usually ask you to also upload your CV. As part of the application form we may ask you some specific competency based questions, but we may just ask you to tell us why you’d be great in the role you’re applying for. It’s in your interest to you take your time answering these questions; we receive thousands of job applications each year and we’re experts at spotting generic answers.
