We're hiring!


Love to drive? That's a great start!

There’s much more to being a driver with Stagecoach than getting the bus from A to B.

You’ll be part of the lifeblood of our local community – making sure that Sarah gets to her university lectures on time. You’ll say hello to James on his way to hospital to see his new baby boy. You’ll help Vikram get to his first day at his new job.

You’ll be the face of our business – playing an incredibly important role each and every day safely and comfortably transporting our fantastic customers to work, to the high street, to our cities, towns and villages, to healthcare and community services, to days away and nights out.

You’ll know some of them by name, and some of them will know you on first name terms too!

Aside from the reward of delivering an incredible experience to our customers, there’s plenty more we can offer:

  • Flexibility – we’ve got different shifts available so you can fit work around your existing commitments.
  • Job security – we’ve been going since 1980, we turnover £1.3bn per year, and we’re not planning on hanging our boots up anytime soon!
  • A great regular income – paid weekly so it’s never too long between pay cheques (not that we pay by cheque – straight into your account every Thursday!)
  • Free travel – for you and your companion on our buses. That means on your days off (of which there are plenty!) you can be off shopping without worrying about parking the car, or heading off for a day in the city without paying a fortune in petrol.
  • A brilliant working environment – your boss isn’t stood over you. You’re out and about, trusted to look after our customers and enjoy yourself at the same time. It’s just like being your own boss in fact!
  • Promotions – want to fly up the ladder? Great! We’ve got plenty of colleagues who started life as a driver and are now Inspectors, Trainers and Managers within our business. Likewise, you want to focus your career on driving a bus then that’s absolutely fine by us.

PLUS other great employee benefits like:

  • Benefits for You - great team discounts on supermarket & High Street shopping, eating out and leisure activities
  • A great holiday allowance - drivers have up to 34 days paid holiday (individual depot allowances may vary)
  • Free professional training - all your professional training (CPC) is carried out by our own team, doesn't cost you anything and you'll be paid for your time
  • Less life admin to worry about - we'll provide you with a pension scheme and all your uniform
  • A focus on health and wellbeing - you can sign up for our annual flu vaccination service, and, if you’re up for it, take part in company-wide fitness challenges
