- Do you enjoy a fresh challenge every day?
Does making a difference in the community where you work excite you?
Then have you considered becoming a Bus Driver?
Brighton & Hove Buses is one of the most recognised companies in our City and are at the heart of the community. Every journey, whether it is commuting to and from work, enjoying a shopping trip, attending an appointment or just meeting friends is equally as important. That’s why our Drivers are so valued - it is them who make it happen.
We are currently recruiting trainee drivers to join our team where you will receive full PAID bespoke training. Likewise we welcome existing PCV holders.
Driving a bus is not easy – it requires great driving skills, concentration and excellent customer service skills. However, it is not as physically demanding as you may think, vehicles these days have power assisted steering so they're easier to drive.
