Bus driving is a rewarding career. You'll be providing a service that customers value and rely on. Getting to work or school. Doctor's appointments. Visiting Nan. Popping to the shops. Heading into town. The journey home. Bus drivers are key workers who keep everyday life moving for local communities.

You'll be out on the road, working on your own initiative. At the same time, you will be part of a close-knit driving team, who look out for each other. Every day brings something different. You'll meet some amazing people along the way.

We'll be there for you, because you're there for us        

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'll have 24/7 access to our confidential Employee Assistance Programme.

If you're a patient, safe driver with good people skills, you're the perfect fit for our driving team.

Trainees need a full UK driving licence (with no more than 6 points)

Experienced drivers require a PCV licence and up to date CPC

All drivers need the flexibility to work a variety of shifts, including early mornings, evenings and weekends.
