Not necessarily - there is nothing in the actual advert about Railways or Model Railways - look at all the publications they produce. The ideal candidate could be someone who has a Caravan (me) or makes Cakes (the wife) and we have a Cat. We were both brought up in Grantham so it would be a return to the home county - but for me BRM will always be the local F1 team !!

Yes but I know nothing about railways - but I do have a caravan, a cat and a wife who makes cakes :jester:

I'm sure Andy can put a word in for you in the Cats & Caravanning department at Warners.


Sounds a great job, know a bit about trains but definitely not strong on the digital front. I'm sure there will be some train loving tech savvy people applying. Is it the job advertised on Warner's Linkedin page and website, doesn't refer to railways specifically in the ad but I'm sure RMWebbers can 'like' the ad on LinkedIn if it helps?

Yes it is, but there's no requirement to know about railways per se. However, we've put it on RMweb, because industry knowledge wouldn't be a disadvantage for applicants.
