We have a flexible range of exciting opportunities available. So, if you're looking for a rewarding role where you can make a difference and work with interesting people every day, becoming a bus driver is the right route for you.
Xplore Dundee is the city's biggest public transport provider, running a network of bus services which carry tens of thousands of passengers every day. We're a subsidiary of the McGill's group - which is Scotland's largest independent bus company. As a driver, you'd be coming on-board with a dynamic and forward-thinking organisation which offers industry-leading pay and variety of great benefits.
Alongside buses, we also operate a fleet of luxury coaches and open-top buses - meaning a great variety of work is available in a career that will really take you places...
Work for us as a bus driver
We have opportunities available for:
- PCV licence holders
- First-time trainees
- Part-time and flexible working (2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 days)
Bus drivers are responsible for delivering high standards of customer care and must driver in a safe, considerate manner. The typical working pattern is based on a minimum-38hr week with rotational shifts. Current PCV licence-holders may request part-time work. We're flexible based on your availability, so let us know and we'll accommodate where possible.
As a member of our team, you'd be paid an industry-leading rate of £13 per hour. You'd also enjoy great benefits such as: a company pension, life assurance and free travel for you and a family member on company-run bus and coach services. Full training is provided, with potential to progress within the business too. And, of course, you'll be able to top up your earnings with overtime (at £27/hr until 31 December!) - with the chance to earn up to £32k per year.
Work for us as a coach driver
We have opportunities for experienced intercity coach drivers on:
- FlixBus (based in Dundee)
- Fly (Dundee to Edinburgh Airport)
In June 2022, we doubled the frequency of Fly to every 90 minutes - and we have ambitions to enhance this further in future. It's Dundee's only direct public transport link to Edinburgh Airport, and we run it with luxury Mercedes Tourismo coaches.
In August 2022, we look forward launching a new network of intercity coach services within Scotland on behalf of FlixBus (which has operations across Europe and North America, and is now looking to grow its presence in the UK).
As a member of our team, you'd be paid an industry-leading rate of £13.50 per hour. You'd also enjoy great benefits such as: a company pension, life assurance and free travel for you and a family member on company-run bus and coach services. And, of course, you'll be able to top up your earnings with overtime - with the chance to earn up to £32k per year.
A full, valid PCV driving licence, current tacograph and current CPC card are essential. Good local and trunk-road knowledge is desirable (although training will be provided). Full details of working patterns (based on 37-41 hours per week) are available on request. Coach-driving roles are based in Dundee and involve working on weekends (plus overnight for Fly, and potentially for FlixBus, pending future expansion).
