The objective is to cover the needs of the company in Valladolid, Irún, Santander and Pamplona. The registration period is open until September 10th, 2021.
Transfesa Logistics has launched a third free traffic assistant course with its own job pool. The objective is to fill the openings that the company currently has in Valladolid, Irún, Santander, and Pamplona. This course has been added to the two previous ones that the company convened in 2020 and 2021 in order to facilitate the acquisition of technical knowledge at no cost for the student to carry out the tasks required of these profiles and also to promote employment in high demand positions.
Boosting technical job profiles
The company is once again convening this training course after the positive experience of the two previous editions. This modality created to fill technical profile openings with their own job pool began in 2020. On that first occasion, participants were trained free of charge at the Transfesa Logistics Railway School and also prepared for ADIF’s official exam. The students who passed obtained an official authorisation to work in the company. The great response to this initiative made the company decide to repeat this formula in the first months of 2021 with a very positive result. In total, between December 2020 and June 2021, a total of thirteen people joined the workforce as traffic assistants.
Candidates interested in participating in the selection process must have completed Compulsory Secondary Education (ESO) or an equivalent qualification. To be part of this third training course, they will have to present a certificate of psychophysical aptitude, (type 2), issued by one of the approved medical examination centers for railway personnel or proof of a set appointment to carry it out. In addition to this, candidates must attach a copy of their Curriculum Vitae with their current contact information and a photo ID (DNI or similar). The registration period is open until September 10th, 2021.
Face-to-face learning in September
Classes will be taught in person by the Transfesa Logistics Railway School. The location has yet to be defined, but it will be in Madrid or Irún. The start date of the course will be at the end of September 2021. Once the training period is over, students will be able to take the official ADIF exam, which is scheduled for the month of November. This authorisation is only valid to work within Transfesa Logistics Group companies. Those that pass but do not obtain a placement, will go to a talent pool to fill future openings within the company.
All those interested in being part of this new traffic assistant course can send their request to the following email address “firstname.lastname@example.org”, with “Traffic assistant” in the subject line.
Commitment to talent and quality education
Human capital is one of the strategic pillars of Transfesa Logistics. The implementation of this type, of course, responds, first of all, to the firm commitment to the company’s internal talent. These courses provide opportunities to employees in unskilled operational positions and without knowledge in the railway area to receive regulated and specific training free of charge. In this way, if they want, they can redirect their professional career towards a specialised position in this sector.
Furthermore, in line with SDG 4 “Quality education” and SDG 8 “Decent work and economic growth”, actions are promoted to improve the environment where Transfesa Logistics carries out its activity. The three editions of the course have also been opened and publicised externally, with the aim of collaborating in the difficult situation in which Spanish society has found itself since the beginning of the year 2020. This free training opportunity and preparation for official exams, at zero cost to students, have been very well received by interested parties and associations in the railway sector since its first course.
Lastly, this initiative meets a real business need, since there is a high demand for this type of specialised profile that is difficult to find in the job market.
