Driving our buses is cool – trainee bus drivers wanted

If you think that bus driving sounds like a career move for you, then our traineeship programme could be just what you’ve been looking for.

Get behind the wheel!

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to drive a bus as a career? Imagine taking charge of a large vehicle, expertly navigating it through busy streets. Imagine helping the public get from A to B, meeting new people every day. Imagine never being stuck behind a desk. Driving our buses is cool. Why not find out more about being a bus driver as a career here.

The best drivers combine good driving skills with a real care for people – bus drivers are responsible for the safety and comfort of their passengers, after all. The best drivers are also reliable, practical and can provide great customer service. If that sounds like you, then we want to hear from you.

We’re looking for trainee bus drivers, training you to get your licence. You’ll earn as you learn and then go on to a job with good rates of pay across our locations in the UK.

  • In London, you can learn how to drive one of the capital’s iconic red buses, leading to a rewarding role at our depots in Hackney and Walthamstow
  • In Yorkshire, we have traineeships available under the CT Plus banner from our depots in Leeds and Wakefield. You can also drive under the Powell’s banner in South Yorkshire
  • In Bristol, we have traineeships available to drive buses in and around the city under the Bristol Community Transport banner.
  • In Guernsey, where we operate the Island’s bus service under the buses.gg banner, there are traineeships for Guernsey residents.

In all our locations, we offer competitive rates of pay, great opportunities for overtime and a more flexible attitude towards rotas and shifts. What’s more, HCT Group also offers a working environment unlike any other operator – we’re a smaller operator so we can treat each driver like an individual, rather than as a cog in a big machine.
