Recruitment and selection process
The procedure may vary, depending on the vacancy and whether you are applying for a general or a specialised role.
We use online assessments to measure job skills, reasoning and problem-solving. For most of our online assessments, we anonymise responses in order to mitigate unconscious bias and ensure fairness.
They also measure the ability to apply knowledge to work-related situations based on each role specification. These situations may include:
- Coding challenge
- Written reports, written data and facts and logically deriving conclusions from them
- Using financial outcomes or performance figures to make effective decisions
- Other case studies
We use structured interviews to measure job-related competencies based on past experience. Structured interviews are more personal than other assessment methods and help us ensure that all candidates are assessed accurately and consistently.
How to apply
At Rail Europe, we recruit based on merit and we are committed to promoting diversity throughout our organisation. We encourage applications from everybody, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, and other protected characteristics.
