School Bus Driver

Fancy a change? We are looking for Qualified and Trainee Bus Drivers to drive our school buses in Summercourt

Working on the Schools rota, the successful applicant will be primarily responsible for providing a first-class service through the transportation of school children to and from their schools.

You will take children to school in the morning, be free to do whatever you want in the daytime and then take them home again in the evening.

Overtime will likely be available – either between your shifts, at weekends or during school holidays – for those who want it. We can offer an immediate start date!

You will work 30 hours a week Mon-Fri, 41 weeks of the year (holidays to be taken when the schools are out).

In addition, you will be able to demonstrate a good record of reliability and punctuality and will be keen to ensure the continuing success of our school contracts.

Ideally, applicants should have at least 2 years' experience driving, and be able to demonstrate a good understanding of how customer service is vital to a successful bus service.
