Engineering Manager

Engineering Manager



Please note there is a pay award pending.

Join us as an Engineering Manager and we'll take your engineering skills to the next level.

For helping keep our fleet on the road, you'll earn a good salary and great benefits (see below).

 Welcome to First Bus Engineering

Hello. We're one of the country's largest bus operators – and our engineering teams are working at the forefront of bus technology. Nationwide, we are investing in state-of-the-art new buses, and in the workshops and people that service them. A First Bus depot is the perfect environment to continue growing your engineering knowhow. We will support your ongoing development and provide a career path to follow.

 About the role

Wales offers an outdoors lifestyle, with all the amenities and attractions of being close to large metropolitan cities. You can enjoy city life, rural adventures, and stunning coastline. There are over 150 beaches in Wales and with 26% of the country a national park or area of outstanding beauty, Wales is literally one of the most stunning places in the UK.

Wales is famous for being a sporting location, with locals and visitors enjoying rugby, mountain biking, hiking, mountaineering, and surfing across the country. For the adventure seekers, nothing can beat a hike to the top of Mt. Snowdon's icy peaks.

Wales also benefits from a much lower cost of living than the UK average, so you can be sure of more expendable income with which to explore. The 3.2 million strong population is dispersed between highly populated and lively cities and towns, and the quiet rural towns and villages. 

With its own language and national holidays, there is a unique and separate identity in Wales compared to the rest of the UK. For those moving to the country, the sense of national pride, and warm culture make a move to Wales so rewarding.

First Cymru's headquarters is based in Swansea, Wales' second most populated city and county. Swansea is fast becoming one of the most popular places to live in the UK. The waterfront location is a vibrant and desirable modern city: offering a great urban lifestyle alongside beautiful coastline and beaches.

The city is experiencing a period of development and a resurgence of new business and investment. A conscious effort to encourage entrepreneurial spirit and pioneering industry to flourish in Swansea has given the city a new lease of life and made it a very attractive place to move to.

Swansea has good travel links: by road you can get from Swansea to London via the M4, and around Wales on the A48. It's an easy drive between Swansea and the Welsh capital of Cardiff. The city also has good rail links from Swansea Railway Station, with regular trains to Cardiff, Newport, and London. For international and domestic flights, Cardiff Airport is just 44 miles from Swansea.

We are looking for an Engineering Manager who can join our small team and be part of a great community delivering bus journeys to our customers across South and West Wales.  With 6 depots there is a great opportunity to make a real difference.

About you

 As an experienced Engineer from a multi-site environment, you will be expected to lead engineering compliance and ensure we operate within our legal obligations.  A large part of the role is leading and mentoring the Engineering Teams and developing a positive culture and a desire for people to develop.  We take employee engagement seriously and this will be an important part of the role.

 Rewards & Benefits

  • First Xclusives discount scheme: You and your family & friends can benefit from over 3,000 offers on high street & leisure brands such as: Argos, Adsa, Sainsburys, Tesco
  • Free travel on our buses for you and your family
  • £6 all-day train travel for you and your family on Great Western Railway, South Western Railway, Avanti, Trans Pennine Express, Hull Trains
  • Free onsite parking + cycle to work scheme
  • Up to 5 weeks holiday + bank holidays
  • Pension scheme and chance to buy discounted First Group shares

We put a big focus on physical and mental wellbeing at First Bus. We recognise that anyone can be affected by the stresses and strains of work, or life outside it. You'll find a range of health-promotion initiatives, and you will have 24/7 access to our confidential Employee Assistance Programme.

Please apply now. We look forward to receiving you application.
