Be a Bus Driver...

Enjoy working with people?

Want a job where every single day is different?

Want a job that earns you up to £32k or more a year?

Whether you've got a PCV Licence or just a hankering to take on a different challenge or fancy a change of career then you could be just the person we're looking for!

And don't worry if you can't drive a bus - if you enjoy meeting people and making them happy in a busy environment then we can teach you the rest.  Believe it or not, once you've got used to the fact that you're driving something that's a bit bigger then you're used to, modern buses are actually easier than driving a manual car.

We're equally interested in hearing from people with a full PCV Licence.  As long as you're positive, outgoing and, most importantly, focused on giving our passengers a great experience then we'd love to hear from you.
