Job reference: SYS-5356

No PCV licence? No problem! Come and join our exciting apprentice programme to become a professional London Bus Driver.

Here at Abellio London Bus, we like to do things differently and challenge traditional conventions to provide better for everyone.  That’s why we have invested in a new and innovative approach to training up new bus drivers with an apprenticeship.

Excellent attitude to customer service 
Team player mind-set
Energy and motivation

Flexibility and openness to shift working

If you’re looking for an exciting and rewarding career within the transport industry, then Abellio London Bus is looking for you. In return, we will provide you with a career that offers a variety of employee benefits, a great working environment and an excellent starting salary.

You don’t need previous experience within the industry as we will provide you with the training to become a fully qualified PCV licence holder. This means the role is ideally suited for those looking to move into the industry while being equally rewarding for those looking to diversify from similar areas.
