Job Description

Fancy being part of the lifeblood of our local community? Bored of the same four walls and want to get out and meet some amazing people across our region? And want to do this with a company which offers you a great salary, fantastic pension, all the training you need (for free!), and a brilliant environment? You’ll make sure that Sarah gets to her university lectures on time. You’ll say hello to James on his way to hospital to see his new baby boy. You’ll help Vikram get to his first day at his new job. And you thought being a bus driver was all about driving! You’ll be so much more than this! You’ll be the face of our business – playing an incredibly important role each and every day safely and comfortably transporting our fantastic customers to work, to the high street, to our cities, towns and villages, to healthcare and community services, to days away and nights out. And where they don’t, we’re relying on you to give them a fantastic journey to remember with your focus on all things customer. You’ll need to operate the bus safely of course, but we’ll teach you all of that for free in our in-house training school. If that’s not enough, you’ll be part of an incredible family. We employ over 150 colleagues in Carlisle alone, and 25,000 across the UK. You’ll part of one of the UK’s greatest business success stories, driving us forward (sorry about the pun!) to even bigger success. Aside from the reward of delivering an incredible experience to our customers, there’s plenty more we can offer: Job security – we’ve been going since 1980, we turnover £1.3bn per year, and we’re not planning on hanging our boots up anytime soon! We’ll pay for all of your training – as a trainee driver we’ll pass on our expertise so you drive it with as much ease and care as you do your everyday car. A great regular income – paid weekly so it’s never too long between pay cheques (not that we pay be cheque – straight into your account every week!) Free travel – for you and your companion on all of our buses. That means on your days you can be off shopping without worrying about parking the car, or heading off for a day into the Lake District National Park without paying a fortune in petrol and parking! A brilliant working environment – you’re not stuck at a desk, your boss isn’t stood over you. You’re out and about, trusted to look after our customers and enjoy yourself at the same time. Promotions – want to start by driving a bus but want to fly up the ladder? Great! We’ve got plenty of colleagues who started life as a driver but are now Inspectors, Trainers and Managers within our business. Likewise, you want to focus your career on driving a bus then that’s absolutely fine by us. There’s only two things we need: You’ll need to hold a driving licence with no more than 6 penalty points on it.And you’ll want to deliver a great experience for our customers. And that’s it…we’ll help you with everything else you’ll need to know!
