Put yourself in the driver’s seat, with the chance to start a new career with an exciting, developing bus company. We’re looking for customer focused, reliable staff to join our work force.  We’re currently recruiting for bus drivers to join our teams across our network.

Trainee Driver

Do you hold a clean car licence? Would you like a competitive salary with full time hours? Would you like to work in a fast moving customer focused environment?

We’re currently recruiting people without a PCV licence to join our friendly team, as part of our Centrebus Training Scheme. The scheme is perfect for those wanting a new direction in their career, but don’t worry you don’t have to be able to drive a bus. We’ll give you training on how to drive any vehicle in our fleet, show you how to drive our routes and give you full customer service training before you hit the road. We’re ideally looking for people with customer service experience, but anyone is welcome to apply.

We're currently taking on new recruits for our Centrebus Driver Training scheme at all of our depots.
