🚨 Dream Job Alert 🚨 Become a Hogwarts Train Conductor 🪄

Calling all Harry Potter fans, Hogwarts aren't currently on the lookout for new wizards/witches, but they ARE looking for new train conductors. Sound interesting?

Published by

Pirates, this is the closest you're probably ever going to get to living your Harry Potter Hogwarts fantasy.

Apprenticeships to become train drivers are currently being awarded in Scotland, and According to ScotRail, the new employees will work in Fort William and will travel regularly on the West Highland Line.

The route connects Glasgow with Oban, Fort William and Mallaig, and passes through some VERY familiar places. Especially for HP fans. In particular, the Glenfinnan Viaduct, where scenes for “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets” and “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban” were filmed - AMAZING. 😍🪄

The route also includes the country's most remote train station, Corrour, which was featured in the film "Trainspotting". In 2009, the train route was voted the best train route in the world, just wow. 🤩

Job website Hijobs, which runs the application process on behalf of ScotRail, describes the role as a “dream job". Although you don't need any experience, successful applicants must be at least 20 years old when they begin training and pass the medical exams.

The job starts with an annual salary of around £32k but can increase to up to £60k after completing the training - sign us up!

Important: The application deadline is November 18, 2023.
