If you have any questions about the Job Track Scheme you can call us between 09.30 - 16.00 Mondays to Fridays on 0345 600 7245 (Option 3).
How it works.....
Firstly, you need to be eligible for our scheme. To be able to join up, you must:
- Have been unemployed for the last six months (with official proof of unemployment)
- Be actively seeking employment with either Job Centre Plus or Ingeus
- Be unemployed at the time of application (we do not accept applications from people who already have an active job offer)
If you are eligible, download the application form from the link above and send it through to the Freepost address on the application form.
Once your membership is approved, we will email you details of your username and password. (Please note that you may need to check your Junk / Spam email folder if you think you haven't heard from us as it depends on your filter settings as to how our email to you is treated). You can then apply for tickets to attend job interviews - just follow the instructions on the ticket ordering page. It's that easy!
When we supply you with tickets, you will normally need to pick them up at either the ticket office or a ticket machine where you start your journey. We will send you details of how to do this upon each successful ticket application.
Already a member and want to apply for your tickets?
Please ensure that you have got the following to hand:
- Your username and password for the Job Track site (as you will need to log in)
- Proof of your interview or job start date (you will need to send us relevant copies by email or by post)
Please note: The job you are being interviewed for MUST be based in a town or city served by Greater Anglia trains (or in within the boundaries of the London Travelcard zones - although tickets will only be supplied to London Liverpool Street).
Or apply for your two month Season Ticket?
Terms and conditions
OK, so you're interested and you want to join (or have joined already). We have some terms and conditions that have to be adhered to (please read below). We do reserve the right to change the terms and conditions at any time.
...is for three months from the date of application. You may not reapply to be a member of the Job Track scheme within 12 months of any previous membership commencement.
Once you have accepted a job offer and been given a Season Ticket, as described below, your membership of the Job Track Scheme is effectively terminated (although the terms concerning Season Tickets issued by Job Track will still apply).
You must provide Job Track / Greater Anglia with documentation as required from time to time to ensure your membership remains valid. If such documents are not supplied we retain the right to withdraw your access to the scheme and any future membership validity.
Please note, we will only accept applications for tickets / Season Tickets that have resulted from offers for interview / job offers that have occurred during your Job Track membership. Your membership does not start until you receive official notification from the Job Track team.
Tickets for attending interviews
...will be supplied up to six times within the membership period. Once you have reached your quota of six tickets you may not apply for any more. If your interview is cancelled, or you do not attend it, you must let the Job Track team know immediately and return any tickets to us.
Tickets will only be supplied once an order for a ticket has been made and the Job Track team have received verifiable proof of a job interview.
Job Track / Greater Anglia are not responsible for any failure to attend an interview through train service disruption and hold no liability in this respect.
The job you are being interviewed for MUST be based in a town or city served by Greater Anglia trains (or in within the boundaries of the London Travelcard zones 1, 2 or 3 - although tickets will only be supplied to London Liverpool Street).
...will be supplied following a confirmed job offer which is accepted by you (only as a result from an interview which we have supplied a ticket for you to attend under the Job Track scheme). We will supply free travel on Greater Anglia services (only) which commences on the start date of your new job and runs continuously for up to two months after your start date. The Season Ticket will be from the Greater Anglia station nearest your place of residence to the Greater Anglia station nearest your place of work. No Season Tickets will be awarded to you on a job offer where we have not supplied a travel ticket under the Job Track Scheme for you to attend an interview for the said job.
Should you leave the job within the two month period (or decide not to take up the job) any tickets issued to you under the Job Track Scheme will need to be returned immediately by Recorded Delivery to the Job Track address. Failure to do so may leave you liable to further action as if you have travelled without a valid ticket.
A Season Ticket will only be supplied once during the membership period and only upon receipt of a "Job Track" order accompanied by a verifiable proof of a job offer which includes a start date.
The job you are travelling to MUST be based in a town or city served by Greater Anglia trains (or in within the boundaries of the London Travelcard zones 1, 2 or 3 - although tickets will only be supplied to London Liverpool Street).

...are not payable on any tickets issued under the Job Track scheme. This includes Delay Repay compensation.
Verification of interview / job details
... you must ensure that the company you are being employed or interviewed by will be willing to verify your interview / offer of employment. We will be unable to issue tickets for interviews or travel to a place of employment where we cannot readily verify the details with the company concerned.
To avoid delays, please make your prospective employer aware of your membership of the scheme.
All proof of employment / interviews must be provided on official letterheaded documentation.
Refusal to join the scheme or removal from the scheme
...may be made at any time based on our joining criteria, misuse of free, or reduced rate, facilities supplied by Job Track or information received which may disqualify you from the scheme. The joining and continued membership of the scheme is entirely at the discretion of the Greater Anglia / Job Track team.
Additionally, we will only provide tickets from the station nearest your place of residence (provided that it is a Greater Anglia station). Should your place of residence change, your eligibility for tickets may also change.
