Perks and Benefits
Work Life Balance
Most of our Drivers and Passenger Assistants work part-time on school runs, with school holidays off. We are proud to be an age-friendly organisation, with many of our staff being over retirement age and enjoying the extra income and a real sense of purpose.
For part-time roles it makes sense to live near the run, or for Bus and Coach drivers relatively close to the depot. If there are no vacancies in your area when you apply, we would be happy to keep your details on file then contact you if a role in your area.
Since we provide services for with children and vulnerable people, a DBS is essential but our friendly team here will help you with all the paperwork. You will also need a medical, and a full driving licence with less than 6 penalty points. PSV Drivers will also need an up to date CPC.
A Supportive Work Family
At Acme, you are a valued member of a team. Even if you work remotely, there is always someone at the end of a phone.
Pay and Health
We offer competitive pay and benefits, a pension scheme and complimentary membership of the Transport Benevolent Fund.
At Acme, we provide the vehicles. If you drive a car or an 8-seater you must be able to park it at home which will be your base.
