We have a whole section of the forum dedicated to railway jobs and careers, but nothing similar for jobs in the bus and coach sector. The purpose of this thread is to provide a space for you to post any vacancies you may come across.

Questions regarding specific vacancies will be welcome; if a forum member who already works for a company can provide some helpful answers, so much the better. However, please try to keep any discussion positive and refrain from using the thread as a soapbox for disgruntled former employees! :)

As usual, please ensure that you provide a relevant link to any job adverts, and provide a relevant quote.

To start things off:

Go North East are holding a recruitment drive at the MetroCentre

Go North East to hold recruitment drive at Metrocentre Coach Park

Go North East is holding a recruitment day on 3 October at the Metrocentre Coach Park in Gateshead, in the hopes of filling driver vacancies.

As well as giving aspiring drivers the opportunity to get behind the wheel, the company is also looking for engineers with a qualification in automotive engineering at level 3 or above to join its engineering ranks.

Go North East’s in-house training academy means no prior experience is required for driver hopefuls.

Says Stephen King, Commercial Director at Go North East: “Our team will be on hand to talk to people throughout the day, offering advice and giving more background on what it’s like to work for Go North East.

“We hope visitors will get a real sense of what it’s like to work for us – being part of a well-established and respected regional business, that has great opportunities for progression.”

The event will take place between 1000-1400hrs.
