Job Description :
Our professional drivers provide safe, reliable and efficient passenger journeys across the East Riding and into North Yorkshire, providing our valued passengers with the best quality travel experience through their friendly, knowledgeable and helpful approach.
We are currently recruiting for bus drivers with existing PCV licences for our Scarborough Depot.
Providing the cheerful and friendly face of the company; greeting passengers courteously and treating everyone with respect and dignity.
Driving company vehicles carefully and safely, complying with all legal and regulatory requirements and company procedures.
Advising passengers of fares, taking payment via cash or valid tickets and passes, and accounting for fares processed.
Being a team-player, ensuring that our services operate come rain or shine, day in day out.
Why work for us?
Established since 1926, we have an excellent reputation in the local area. We can provide job security and ongoing training and welcome applications from candidates with all levels of experience.
Our award-winning in-house training department allows us to recruit and train candidates with or without a PCV licence. There are no costs for training or uniform (provided you remain with us for a period of two years or more) and we pay you from day one so you can earn while you learn.
What makes a great candidate for this role?
You must have great customer services skills and be a team player. We're looking to recruit people who already have a PCV licence, although you don't necessarily have to be driving buses in your existing job, as we'll provide full training on routes, ticket machines etc.
A good grasp of basic English and maths is essential as you’ll be dealing with passengers on a daily basis, and a knowledge of the local area is helpful.
You need to look smart and professional, and be willing to work shifts.
What are pay and benefits like?
Once you're fully trained with your probationary period complete, pay is £9.50 per hour, with overtime at basic plus £1.
80 per hour. With overtime, you can earn around £20k per year. You will get paid a training rate whilst training, and an intermediate rate until your probationary period is over.
Experienced bus drivers who already hold PCV licences will usually go onto the top rate as soon as they're out on the road, but this depends on individual circumstances, and will be discussed during the application process.
The position is full time and permanent.
We also provide 20 days holiday (rising to 25 days after 4 years service), a NEST pension, free bus travel for you and your partner and up to two children (under 16, when travelling with a passholder) within the area, an employee discount scheme and other benefits.
