Join us on the Journey...

Don't worry if you haven't got a CV, you can easily apply for this role without one by inputting your details - or upload your CV.

National Express have recently expanded its service to include National Express Accessible Transport (NEAT). This service provides accessible transport that connects customers with accessibility needs to see friends, family and the ability to access a range of activities, which without our help, would not be possible.

We have rewarding roles available for caring Drivers to join our Education Transport Team in our South Birmingham Depot. This is much more than a part time driving role, we are looking for individuals who want to make a difference in the community and provide support to those with transport accessibility needs and have difficulties using public transport services.

We are looking for individuals with the ability to safely drive school children with a range of accessibility needs. The role works closely with a dedicated escort who will support and look after school children using our services. Our drivers must have an understanding of working with individuals requiring additional aid and the ability to be approachable, friendly and caring under any circumstances. 

Our NEAT Drivers are of the highest quality, having an understanding of care, strong geographical knowledge of the local area and the desire to positively impact the lives of those using the service.  

Day to day you will be...

  • Driving a minibus to a scheduled timetable (Mon - Fri 7:30am - 9:30am and 2:30pm - 5:30pm)
  • Providing excellent customer and driving services 
  • Working as part of a close team with your dedicated escort and central controllers 
  • Connecting school children safely from home to school and back again
  • Focusing on Health and Safety of your vehicle by carrying out routine vehicle checks, repairing minor defects and ensuring the inside of your vehicle allows customers to travel in comfort 
  • Everyday is different and there will be ad hoc tasks and responsibilities to undertake 

Unfortunately we are currently unable to accept applications for individuals who do not have the D1 category on their driving licence. 

Things to note...

National Express has a very high focus on health and safety and as a result operates a strict Drugs and Alcohol Policy which is applicable to all employees.

Drug and Alcohol testing is completed as part of the assessment process as well as random checks during employment according to the policy.

You may also have experience in the following...

Support Work, Carer, Care Home, Educational Services, Care Worker, Customer Service, Driver, Driving Licence, HGV, CPC, Passenger Transport, Driving, Delivery Driver, Taxi Driver, Security, Travel, Retail, Customer Care
