Drivers (10 or 20 hours per week - Term-time only)

Location:Oswestry and Walford

Position Details

The College is looking to recruit suitably qualified drivers to be part of its Estates team. The postholders will be responsible for driving a college minibus (max. 16 seats) to transport students from designated pickup points to the College campus, and/or vice-versa.

 

Working hours are 20 hours per week with minibuses running twice daily: morning 7am – 9am and afternoon 4pm – 6pm.  The role is also suitable for job sharing, so we are interested to hear from anyone looking for 10 hours per week (i.e., the morning or afternoon routes only).

 

The position will primarily drive routes from our Walford campus but there may be a requirement to provide occasional cover at the Oswestry campus, depending on staffing or operational requirements.

 

Suitable applicants must hold a valid UK driving license, with D1 category.

 

Experience of driving a minibus desirable, although training will be given.

 

You will be reliable, a good timekeeper and have a pleasant professional manner.

 

On days where there is no driving requirement (e.g., training days when the College is closed to students), the post holder may be required to perform other vehicle checks or assist caretaking staff with duties or tasks, as necessary.

 

HLNSC is committed to safeguarding and promotes the welfare of all learners and expects all staff to share this commitment. North Shropshire College is a Disability Confident Employer.
