Duties include:

  • To plan and manage replacement buses and coaches to provide journeys to a timetable when the rail service is disrupted due to pre-planned and emergency requirements
  • Ensuring and delivering a high-quality customer focussed approach
  • To provide efficient and effective administrative support
  • Work effectively with external suppliers and colleagues
  • Always have a duty of care for the health and safety of yourself and your colleagues, including a duty to report unsafe acts or omissions of safety
