South Kilburn Trust have partnered with Metroline, part of one of the largest passenger land companies in the world, to bring a bus driver recruitment day to residents of South Kilburn. The event will take place on Thursday 20th October from 12-4pm at Carlton Hall, and potential applicants will be able to directly apply for vacancies with Metroline on the day.
The recruitment day will be an open opportunity for job seekers interested in a career in bus driving to get an insight into the company and gain valuable information about roles available before applying. After an initial introduction to the company and the benefits of the role, candidates will be able to complete an application form and submit it directly to the Metroline representative who will be present on the day.
Metroline, who have a depot in Willesden are the highest paying TfL bus operator in London, and have a starting base salary of £27,000 per year for employees with a PCV license (Passenger Carrying License). There is also a trainee programme for candidates who do not hold a PCV license, in which candidates are paid as they train. Representatives from Metroline will be recruiting for positions based at garages in North West London and North London.
Excitingly, due to their need for more drivers, Metroline have not put a limit on the number of bus driver positions that are on offer. The roles are open to both men and women and to be eligible applicants must have a full UK driving license for at least one year, and have no more than 3 penalty points.
Anneesh Wright, from the Employment and Enterprise Team at South Kilburn Trust commented: “We are really excited and pleased to hold the Metroline Recruitment Day, hopefully as many local people as possible will attend and are able to take advantage of this great opportunity.”
