Latest GWR Train Driver Vacancies

GWR is forever associated with Isambard Kingdom Brunel, one of the world’s greatest pioneers. So much of what we have today derives from Brunel’s extraordinary vision and enthusiasm for the potential of rail. We are building on Brunel’s legacy and transforming our railway into one fit for the 21st Century.

Over the next few years we will be making history with huge investments that will affect all areas of operations, from new trains to station upgrades and local community support.

As a result of this investment, we are seeking new Drivers to join our team across the network from London and the Thames Valley, through to South Wales and across the South West of England.

Along with all GWR colleagues, GWR Drivers play a crucial role in building trust and loyalty in GWR and rail travel as a whole. The way colleagues embody our values defines our image and presence in the community.

  • We are proud and support each other as a ‘railway family’
  • We are committed to our customers and their experience of railway travel
  • We are aiming to set and meet the highest standards
  • We are accountable for performance
  • We are dedicated to safety

In July 2018, GWR harmonised its Train Driver terms and conditions resulting in a single grade across the whole of business. By May 2020, the salary for all GWR Train Drivers will rise to circa £62,000 and annual leave to 32 days inclusive of Bank Holidays.

This is truly an exciting time to join GWR and be part of history.

Kerry joined Firstgroup as a driver in 2008. With an English degree from Wolverhampton, driving is a second career. Firstgroup funded a BSc in Railway Operations Management with Glasgow Caledonian and the Institution of Railway Operators to upskill her on the industry.

'It is a job that allows me to give something back to the community, driving commuters to work, children to school, the elderly to the shops. Working shifts means my hours are condensed in to a 4 day week, making it easier to plan childcare and giving me a great home/work life balance. I am also a trade union rep, fully supported by the company, and get to give careers talks in schools normalising women in the industry. Children do not see gender as a barrier to careers and we are opening up the industry to newer generations. Train driving is no longer seen as a male job like it was when I was growing up.'
