Job vacancies

PCV driver vacancies 

From Wednesday 27th December, Reading Buses will be taking over operation of the long-standing Green Line 702 service. 

This route runs between Bracknell and Windsor to London. It will operate with new morning and evening extensions to/from Reading and will be based at our Reading depot. 

We've a good track record of investing in, promoting and growing our routes. We need a great team of people to get involved in helping to deliver brilliant service on the Green Line 702 to its loyal commuter customers, as well as the equally important leisure market to destinations such as Windsor Castle and Legoland.

This is not your ordinary bus service. As an express route serving important commuter and leisure/tourist markets, this requires consistent VIP levels of service. We need a team of people who can be utterly professional, whatever they might encounter on the road, as well as being confident with motorway driving, possible diversions, and working away from base, including driving in Central London.  Initially we are recruiting current PCV licence holders for this service.

Drivers will work on a dedicated rota (with early and late shifts included). The hourly rates of pay are £12.65 rising to £14.09 for late shifts and £13.40 and £14.78 respectively at weekends.  This route will operate to full domestic drivers’ hours and work/rest regulations, with meal breaks taken at Victoria. As we continue to enhance the service, this will include upgrading the vehicles to reflect the prestigious nature of this work.
