Yes you read that correctly, First will pay you while you train. If you already hold a PCV license and feel like a change of scenery, or if you feel like dusting off a PCV license that you haven't used in a while, come and have a chat.
Our in-house training team is located at our Edward Street Depot in Weymouth, and we will give you a free bus pass to get you to and from work.
