Select train drivers –
Rail transport in demand as never before!

2021 is the European Year of Rail. By 2030, the EU aims to achieve 50% growth in the transport of goods by rail. But more and more is also being invested in railroads around the world, because rail transport is seen as a beacon of hope in the climate crisis. At the same time, the workforce of railroad companies is aging all over the world – for example, the average age of train driver in Australia is 49 and in the US 46 years old. In the coming years, therefore, the need for personnel for these positions will increase. The search for suitable candidates is not only time-consuming and cost-intensive but also extremely complex.

Are you looking for train drivers or dispatchers?

Rail transport will become increasingly attractive for tourism in the future. Freight traffic is also being expanded more and more throughout Europe, with measures such as the European Commission's Trans-European Transport Network regulation (TEN-T).

In the coming years, we can therefore expect an increasing demand for well-trained workers. This is particularly true of jobs with special requirements, such as train drivers and dispatchers. Their tasks are being made easier by advancing automation, but they cannot be taken over completely.

At the same time, a wave of retirements is taking place in many rail companies, so that there's not only the new need for skilled workers but also vacant positions have to be filled. To meet this massive demand for personnel, new target groups from other core occupations or age ranges must sometimes be addressed. This makes it all the more important to test potential in order to identify the right people in the growing pool of applicants.

Our Safety Screening Rail (SAFESC) offers you convenient, location-independent screening and thus also makes it possible to test beyond your own country's borders and thus further expand your applicant pool. Test logical thinking, concentration, job-relevant personality traits and other important dimensions: uncomplicated, inexpensive and maximally flexible for you and your applicants.

Screen thousands of applicants with just a few clicks, in minutes.



Screening for the optimal preselection


The selection of skills tested with SAFESC was based on international guidelines, proven selection procedures and empirical studies.

SAFESC provides a quick overview of the results:

  • An overall evaluation in percent with a three-star system as an aid to interpretation
  • individual results with an evaluation in traffic light colors
  • different weighting of the skills in the area of road flows into the evaluation
