Special Events Bus Driver

Love driving a bus? Yes…then that’s a good start!


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


We are looking for qualified PCV holders to work for us throughout the London area carrying out rail replacement and special event work, working at least 20 days a year for us so you can fit this around your other commitments. By the very nature of this work we can’t guarantee any work each week, but if you are flexible and happy to – or prefer – to work predominately at the weekend and/or bank holidays, we’d love to hear from you.


This work will take you across London and beyond working with a team of driving and controllers as we deliver pop-up services for rail operators and event organisers.


We’re relying on you to give our passengers a fantastic journey to remember with your focus on all things customer. You’ll need to operate the bus safely of course, but as a qualified driver and PCV license holder, we’re sure you’ve got that bit covered.


If that’s not enough, you’ll be part of an incredible family. We employ over 3,500 colleagues in London alone, and 25,000 across the UK. You’ll be part of one of the UK’s greatest business success stories, driving us forward (sorry about the pun!) to even bigger success.


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


§ Flexibility – as an events driver, we will be looking for you to help us out when the call comes, however there will be plenty of notice, and if you can’t fit one of our jobs that’s fine by us.


§ No day is the same - not many driving jobs will have this much variety, with you’ll be driving different routes, both city and country. Sometimes it will be rail replacement (or DLR or tram for that matter), at other times it might be music festivals or a major sporting event. And having the best drivers will help us get even more,


§ 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 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.


There’s a few things we need from you:


1. A passion for delivering a great customer experience.

2. A PCV license, and a maximum of 6 points on your driving license, with no driving bans within the last 5 years

3. Commitment to work at least 20 days each year


And that’s it…we’ll help you with everything else you need to know!
