Quality Bus Drivers Needed!
Come and join our enthusiastic expanding driving team and earn up to £11.25 per hour, one of the best rates in the south-west, driving Western Greyhound buses!
The basic requirements are that you enjoy driving, get on well with people and are smart and reliable. If you have, or can easily obtain a PCV licence, and have good references, we may be able to offer you a great opportunity.
Most of our service buses are comfortable, modern vehicles under six years old. Most of the shifts are Monday to Saturday daytimes, but if you prefer evening and/or Sunday work, these are also available as we have a flexible shift pattern. The majority of buses work out of Summercourt depot which is centrally situated on the A30 near Newquay with adequate parking, but there are also outstations at Bude, Delabole, Bodmin, Padstow, Liskeard, Looe and Wadebridge for those who live in that vicinity. You work either four longer or five shorter days week on a small roster with mainly Sundays off, and generally you get a long weekend off every six weeks if you want it. Overtime is often available for those that wish to work longer hours and is not compulsory for those that dont. There are also a number of part-time positions if you just fancy doing, say Saturdays or just an odd day or two a week. You can also job share.
If you prefer driving double-deckers, you can apply to go on our double-deck roster where you will be able to drive these vehicles much of the time.
If you are looking for full-time or part-time work, enjoy driving and get on well with people, then give us a call. If you have a PCV licence, some experience and good references, we can offer you a great opportunity. We have a low turnover and only limited vacancies, which is different to the driver shortages which we see elsewhere, so that is probably the best recommendation for you to work for us.
If you think you have got what it takes to contribute to an already successful team of drivers, then fill out an application form for employment. You can download a form using the link below or, if you don not have access to a printer, you can pick up a copy from our Travelshop at Newquay Bus Station.
You will also need to provide:
- a cover letter
- a copy of any CPC or NVQ certificates
- a copy of your driving licence
(we will need to see both sides of your photocard, and paper counterpart)
