Customers depend on our drivers to be safe, friendly and reliable, and they depend on them to help with local knowledge and directions. It's a responsible job; that's why we reward our drivers well. If you feel you're good with people and have excellent driving skills, then a rewarding career helping our customers get from A to B could be perfect for you.

At Arriva, we have modern buses that are as easy to drive as a car - only bigger. If you've never driven a bus before, don't worry; we can train you to obtain your PCV licence, your Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) and route-learning.

You must have:

  • A full UK or EC driving licence
  • Minimum of two years driving experience in the UK
  • No more than 6 points on your licence
  • No criminal convictions

In return, we offer:

  • £370 per week whilst training
  • Free bus travel for you and a partner / dependents
  • Career development opportunities
  • Company pension scheme

If you would like to attend, please telephone 01322 627936 between 07:30 and 15:30 hours for an appointment, stating clearly which date you would like to attend.

If you can't make our Recruitment Open Day but would still be interested in applying, please e-mail Allison Weatherley ( to request an application form.

*Come along for an interview and driving assessment. To speed up your application and avoid delays, please remember to bring your full driving licence to the assessment day and, to meet DVLA eyesight requirements, it would be great if you've had a recent eyesight test.
