Transdev Yorkshire offers job seekers and switchers to try their skills behind the wheel

The Academy by Transdev training bus

Transdev Yorkshire is inviting career switchers and job seekers to get behind the wheel of one of its training buses at its award-winning Academy in York – with a fast-tracked application process and higher pay awaiting those who take up the offer.

Last month, the company officially opened its impressive new green depot at Rawcliffe on the northern outskirts of York – complete with its own in-house training Academy, to help attract and retain the best people for its driving and engineering teams.

Now Transdev is throwing open the gates of its new home in York for an open event on Saturday 20 April from 10am to 2pm, to make finding out more about joining its driving team as easy as catching a bus from A to B.

We’re keen to meet positive people with the drive to serve our customers across our networks, including York and Country, Coastliner and CitySightseeing York.

Our newest depot in York has been built for the future, with the environment and sustainability a key priority. We now have a state-of-the-art facility offering the best staff welfare and support in our industry, and we’re ready to grow with the right people on board.

With newly increased pay of £15.05 an hour for qualified drivers, there’s never been a better time to join our team. And it doesn’t matter if you’ve never driven anything bigger than a car – we can train you to the highest standards in our super new Academy.

Our Academy team will be here to answer your questions about working with us. We can start the application process immediately – you can even take your medical with our on-site doctor – and you can get a feel for being behind the wheel of one of our Academy buses with our on-site driving experience.

Dale French, Transdev Academy Manager

The  open day will give potential recruits the chance to meet depot colleagues and Transdev’s Academy team for an informal chat about the roles available, to help them decide if a career on the buses could be the ideal new start for them.

How can we help you to move forward?
