what are my chances of getting this job with network rail?
i recently applied for a job as a signaller with network rail, ive been a shopfitter for 3 years, what do you think my chances of getting this job will be?,
Question answered by Fast Reg
If it is a Trainee Signaller position you will have as much chance as anyone else.
However to improve your chances you really need to make sure you tailor your application to the kinds of qualities that you anticipate a signaller would need. These include an ability to retain and follow rules, a cool head under pressure, good communication skills and the ability to work with a minimum of supervision. If you can provide real examples of this from your professional or personal life then you will have a better chance than if you just use a generic application.
can a company withhold my pay because i quit?
i am a self employed shopfitter and i recently quit for the company i was working for as i felt i was being unfairly treat. The company say they will not pay me because they had to send other people to finish the job.
Question answered by Steve D
If you are self-employed, quitting halfway through the contract indicates you did not complete the work you were required to complete and may have voided the contract. Because the contracting company had to incur extra expense to re-bid the contract, incur delays, etc., they may be entitled to withhold the check - especially if there is a performance clause.
Basic contract law states that there is a two-way promise - each party must agree to complete or perform some act in exchange for the completion or performance of an act by the other party...i.e., you agree to do specific work in exchange for the other party (the company) paying you some level of recompense. You failed to complete you end of the contract by quitting. As self-employed, the company is not paying you by the hour like an employee, but rather by the job.

What do the number of shops on this highstreet show?
On one highstreet, there are:
22 tourist shops,
41 resident shops,
71 both tourist and residential shops
and 9 not in use.
I can see that there are overall more resident shops to tourist shops... a 1:1.8... almost double.
So what could be said overall from these figures other than that there are more residential shops?
Question answered by jonal
It is a popular resort or visitor town or city with a much higher number of shops catering for tourists than is normal for average towns or cities.
A total of 134 shops in use, of which 93 offer tourist-oriented sales suggests a seaside resort or a well-known inland town or city popular with sight-seers such as York or Windsor, maybe smaller but not by much.
If the shops are equally distributed on both sides of the road and allowing twenty feet for an average outlet width the high street has shops along about 1400 feet of it's length plus whatever is taken up by road juctions or other areas, which is about 1/4 mile, not a long high street, but not particularly short.
If the shop density is 100% the town centre is very compact.
A more normal high street shop density is around 75%, meaning 3 out of 4 buildings is a shop.A shop density of 50% would mean a high street around 1/2 mile long, given the same distribution.
The number of shops and estimated length of the shopping street suggests a town size of around 100 000 - 300 000 population and a visitor count exceeding well over twice that per annum.
Depending upon the general affluence of the area and local pricing the local authority will be receiving as a lower estimate £1 - £4 million per annum in rates for the retail outlets, plus at least a similar amount in direct trading/tax revenues.
Employment generated by that number of outlets may be in the range of 300 - 700 shop assistants and office staff, and at least 500 other people directly involved with day or evening cleaning tasks and for mantainance and repairs such as plumbers, electricians, painters and decorators, shopfitters, service engineers for tills, computers, and other equipment, and delivery staff.
Accountants, auditors, insurance personell, banking staff, lawyers, ,and other profressions may obtain part of their employment by servicing the shop accounts involving several hundred individuals and indirect employment for thousands of others employed by the organisations concerned.
Any of those organisations which operate within the area of the same local authority will raise the revenue obtained by the authority by virtue of their trading and servicing agreements with the shops, perhaps by more than £1million if ancillary serces are included.
Indirect employment may involve well over 100 000 people wordwide, perhaps several millions if the entire tree structure of employment for all the goods and services involved in all the countries from which the items for sale are produced, and the labour and transport arrangements from the point of origin of raw materials to the factories and then to the point of sale are included.
Vehicle deliveries to the shops will add to the revenue to the local authority from filling stations and for the servicing of vehicles, and to other authorities for long-distance deliveries.
Salaries paid to shop employees and spent locally, including in other outlets than the shops themselves, for example on local transport, pubs, clubs, etc, will provide another increase in revenues to the local authority.
In total the shops may be expected to contribute in excess of £6 million a year to the local authority revenues in poorer areas, up to more than £10 million in more affluent areas, as lower estimates.
Rentals for the unused outlets may be too high to be of interest to punters, or planning permission cannot be obtained for desired changes or usage, or nobody is interested in opening a business in them anyway, either due to lack of general interest or because of their location or state of repair or available facilities, or they were only recently made vacant or are due for demolition or modernisation and are not available for new businesses.
