TPE offers Wilko workers 'guaranteed interview'

TransPennine Express (TPE) is calling out to Wilko workers in West Yorkshire, offering guaranteed interviews for vacancies at Dewsbury Station.

This comes as Wilko, the well-known retailer which employs more than 12,000 workers, fell into administration in August.

Recognising the challenges faced by Wilko employees, Nicola Buckley, HR Director for TransPennine Express, said: “We are saddened to hear the news about Wilko and are thinking of all the colleagues who have been affected.

“Therefore, we’d like to provide an opportunity for some of those affected to transition into a new role within the rail industry.

“We are guaranteeing interviews for our Customer Service Professional (Gateline) vacancies at Dewsbury Station to any Wilko workers who apply.”

To be guaranteed an interview for the vacancies candidates must complete the application on the vacancy and type “WILKO” in capital letters in the ‘reason for leaving’ section of their most recent role.
