If you've got the drive... we've got the bus!
Could you drive our new ECLIPSE buses between Fareham and Gosport? How about driving a Solent Ranger from Southampton to Portsmouth? Would you like to earn £25k a year?
If you're passionate about delivering exceptional customer services and would like a customer facing job with a difference, then why not consider applying to drive a First Bus.
In our Solent region, First operates one of the newest fleets of buses on our ECLIPSE, The Star and Solent Ranger routes, along with our standard First branded routes, and these fleets are a joy to drive. We're looking for the right candidates who enjoy driving to take their career to the next level.
Location: Hilsea Depot, Portsmouth or Hoeford Depot, Fareham
Hours: 37 to 45 hours per week, varied shifts (including split shifts).
Rate of Pay: £7.60 per hour during training, £10.45 per hour once qualified.
Yes you read that correctly, First will pay you £7.60 per hour while you train, and you will walk away with a full PCV Licence after you complete your training. If you already hold a PCV licence and feel like a change of scenery, or if you feel like dusting off a PCV licence that you haven't used in a while, we will offer you a starting rate of £8.60.
Our in-house training team is located at our Empress Road Head Office in Southampton, and we will give you a free bus pass to get you to and from work.

All you need is to be aged 18 or over, have a clean driving license with no more than 6 points and be happy to be flexible to work varied shift patterns - and we will provide you with full training, which will lead to you obtaining your PCV licence.
