Want to be one of our amazing drivers? Apply now!

We are currently looking for bus drivers.

Our drivers provide safe and reliable passenger journeys across East Yorkshire and beyond, giving our valued customers the best quality travel experience through their friendly knowledgeable and helpful approach.

It's not just local buses either, we're looking for coach drivers for East Yorkshire Coaches, as well as National Express.

We have depots across East Yorkshire, with drivers based at Hull, Withernsea, Elloughton, Pocklington, Bridlington and Scarborough.

Do I need a bus driving licence to apply?

No! You don't need previous PCV driving experience to become a bus driver at East Yorkshire, thanks to our award-winning in-house Training Academy, where full training is provided, free of charge.  Training is available at our Head Office in Hull, or for those based to the north of the region you can train at our depot at Bridlington.

We'll teach you how to drive a bus (or a coach), put you through your bus driving test, whilst also covering accessibility and customer service training. Of course, ongoing training will be provided too.

A minimum of 12 months car driving experience is need. Applications are also welcomed from those who already hold a PCV licence.

Do I need to work full time?

Most bus drivers work full time, but we also have some other options available.  We have a limited number of part time vacancies, and we also have term-time, annualised and seasonal vacancies.  When you apply, tell us what hours you'd prefer, and we can discuss the options with you at interview.

What are the pay and benefits like?

Average earnings are around £420+ per week for bus drivers, and £2100+ a month for National Express drivers.  For JustGo drivers, it's around £400 per week, with no evening or Sunday work.  If you're new to PCV driving, you'll be paid a training rate while you train, but once you've passed your practical test you'll move onto the full rate of pay. 

Benefits

Working for us comes with a number of benefits, including:

  • Enhancements for overtime and weekends
  • Regular training to keep your skills up to date
  • Company pension
  • 20 days paid holiday, rising to 25 days after 4 years of service
  • Uniform and safety equipment relevant to your position
  • Free eye tests and vouchers for money off prescription glasses
  • High street discounts via our employee app
  • Free bus pass for you and one family member to use across East Yorkshire buses & on Go-Ahead buses across the country (excluding London)

If you're an existing PCV licence holder, you'll get a £250 sign-on bonus when you pass your sixth month probation. (Terms and conditions apply, details will be given at interview).

About East Yorkshire

As one of the region’s leading public transport providers, East Yorkshire has been helping get people around since 1926, and over 32,000 people use their buses every day.  That’s nearly 12 million car journeys a year taken off our roads.

Whether travelling to work, school, the shops, on a day or night out, or to visit friends and family, East Yorkshire makes sure people can get to the places they need to be across East Yorkshire, Hull, North Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire.  We also offer coach day trips and UK holidays, coach hire, and run National Express coach services.

With a turnover of £30m and a fleet of around 250 vehicles, East Yorkshire employs around 650 people.  The company’s main engineering depot and head office is in Hull, with other depots in Withernsea, Elloughton, Pocklington, Bridlington and Scarborough.

East Yorkshire is part of the international Go-Ahead Group, which operates bus services across the UK, Ireland and Singapore, and is also responsible for about a third of all train passenger journeys in the UK, as well as running rail contracts in Norway and Germany.  East Yorkshire has the benefits of being part of a big group, but is locally run and managed.

You’ll also get a lot of benefits working here, including a free bus pass for you and your family, an occupational pension scheme, company sick pay and a great discount scheme where you can save money at places you shop, including supermarkets and high street names.  We also have a long service reward programme.
