Enjoy driving, and want to use those skills to help your community?

Approachable, friendly and always there is a smile? Can you see yourself transporting children and adults to our schools and day centres?

You will work as part of a team with the Passenger Assistant, who attends to individual’s needs whilst travelling. You’ll assist with moving passengers, including using a tail lift.  You’ll keep the bus in good working order by carrying out basic administration, keeping it clean and of course topping it up with fuel.

You’ll drive the minibus on a split shift (which is normally between 7 am - 9.15 am and then 2.30 pm to 5.30 pm) to safely transport individuals to their destination in the morning and return them home in the afternoon. Relief Drivers provide cover for sickness, holidays and busy periods.

As a Driver, you will need to be a minimum of 21 years of age and can demonstrate evidence of experience driving appropriate vehicles*.

Candidates are required to successfully complete a County Council driving assessment prior to interview.

Due to the nature of the work a criminal record check (DBS) will also be required.

*The majority of drivers will require a category D1 licence, but on occasion will need a PSV licence, and sometimes a category C licence. This will be specified within each job role.

In line with the "Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974, we do not automatically reject applicants with a criminal record. Every application will be considered individually, considering the nature and circumstances of the conviction and the type of work applied for. You will not be asked to disclose 'spent' convictions unless the work requires access to children and vulnerable adults.


Please clearly indicate at the top of your application the job title(s) you are interested in applying for.
