£2,000 welcome bonus. When it’s gone, it’s gone – so apply now. (There are a few Ts&Cs).

 

What do Harry Potter, Spice World and Spiderman have in common?

You got it: London buses.

Our capital’s famous for its big red fleet, and now there’s an opportunity to be part of all that history by joining us as a bus driver based in our Beddington depot.

You’ll help people get to work. Take tourists to popular spots like Brixton and Bromley. And be a welcoming, friendly face that brightens everyone’s journey.

Who we are:

We’re the team behind hundreds of buses zipping across London, with over 150 million customers a year. We couldn’t do it without our drivers – so we offer some of the best salaries and benefits in the business.

Who you are

You will need to:

  • work shifts for at least 38 hours a week, including weekends and bank holidays
  • live close enough to our Beddington depot to be able to get there quickly, no matter the time of day or night
  • have a valid UK PCV licence and a Driver Certificate of Professional Competence card (Driver CPC)
  • have a great driving history – so no more than six penalty points, and no drink driving offences in the last five years
  • live in the UK and have a UK bank account and valid Right to Work documents

You’ll also:

  • be one of those above-and-beyond types, keeping an eye on your passengers’ health and safety and making sure your vehicle’s always in good condition
  • have an eye for detail
  • have a ‘right first time’ attitude

What you’ll get

Working for us means you get lots of benefits on top of your salary, including:

  • free travel on all Tfl routes for you and a friend or family member (once you’ve worked with us for three months)
  • training and development
  • an annual safe driving bonus, and high street vouchers for good performance
  • access to our contributory pension scheme – you put in 5% of your salary each month and we’ll add 3% on top
  • life insurance (if you sign up to the pension scheme)
  • salary sacrifice benefits – you can choose to get things like a new laptop, smart watch, TV or phone in return for slightly less pay
  • discounts from shops and retailers – including Apple, Adidas, Nike, Vue, Odeon, Sainsbury’s, Asda, Morrisons and more
  • eye test vouchers
  • free help from our employee assistance programme to support you personally and at work.   
  • opportunities to increase your income through our annual safe driving bonus, our refer a friend scheme and by being awarded our golden tickets for excellent driving and customer service 

Everybody’s welcome

We’re working hard to make sure our workforce is a true representation of society itself. That means we take a zero-tolerance approach to discrimination and encourage diversity and inclusion throughout our business. 

For our driver opportunities, we particularly welcome applications from women, as they are under-represented within our organisation at this level.
