Train operator Greater Anglia has announced a free rail ticket scheme for job seekers.

Job Track will see the company offering unemployed people free train tickets to travel to job interviews and, once they have a job, a free season ticket for their first two months in work.

Greater Anglia says the initiative is aimed at helping the unemployed find work and allow them to look for jobs outside of their immediate surroundings.

Up to six day return tickets are available to attend job interviews within the Greater Anglia network. The scheme is also being publicised at Job Centres.

Ruud Haket, Greater Anglia managing director, said the company wanted to play a positive role in the communities it served, adding: “This scheme will assist those looking for work and when finding employment, offers a great help to people at a time when money is tight.”

  • There's no such thing as a 'free lunch' - these journeys will be subsidised by the fare paying public.
