Application Process

Our process is simple; it should take you no more than 20 minutes to complete and we would advise you to provide as much information as possible as this will help us when we are reviewing your application. Once you have submitted your application we will send you an email confirmation.

Once we have reviewed your application and feel you have the right skills for the role you would be invited to complete a range of online tests which can vary from Situational Judgement Tests (SJT) to verbal and numerical tests.

Our SJT presents you with different situations you might experience in the job you’re applying for. Answers are in a multiple choice format, choosing one of three scenarios for each question.

Interviews at Abellio typically contain behavioural based questions where we look for evidence of your past behaviours and compare these against the Abellio behaviours. This means that we'll require you to give specific, relevant, detailed and positive examples of things you've done during your career to date or from recent full-time education.

Behavioural questions will tend to be ‘open questions' that will require you to give detailed answers.

When preparing examples for your interview, try to keep the following in mind when structuring your answers:

S. Situation – Describe the situation you found yourself in.
T. Tasks – What tasks did you identify that needed to be done?
A. Actions – What actions did you actually take?
R. Results – What was the outcome?

The key to these questions is ensuring that you have answered the question and have clearly articulated the scenario (size, scale, relevance, impact) and have demonstrated what you personally did, said or achieved within the scenario.

Preparation for your interview may seem like hard work – however, if you are fully prepared you will definitely feel more confident on the day and deliver a better performance.

If you have not been successful, you’ll be contacted (usually by email) to inform you of this decision as to why you have not been successful this time.
