The opportunity



Want to learn all the skills it takes to be a Train Guard while earning a full-time salary?



With customer demand for our train services continuing to rise, we’re looking for the next generation of Train Guards to help deliver safe and fast travel for our customers - now and into the future.


Train Guards are responsible for the safety of our customers and help support train operations. Train Guards help provide customer service and physical assistance, communicate service information through public announcements and answering enquiries, and are trained to handle critical incidents or emergency situations.


Our six-month paid Trainee Train Guard program will help you develop the skills and capabilities to become a qualified Train Guard. You’ll learn how to manage a variety of work scenarios through a combination of on-the-job and classroom training. You’ll also receive ongoing mentoring and support from our dedicated trainers and get to know others in your training school cohort.


While the path to becoming a Train Guard is dynamic and rewarding, our Trainee program also reflects the work conditions and personal commitment it takes to help Sydney Trains run its network 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Your training schedule will include early mornings, evenings and weekends.
