Become a Trainee

At National Express, we're not just committed to giving the best Drivers the best coaches to drive. We want to bring through the next generation and train them to deliver the service we are famous for.

As a National Express Trainee Driver, we'll train you to achieve your PCV licence. Once you have it and extensive road experience under your belt, you'll be part of a team that transports customers to lots of different locations across the UK. Whatever your route, you'll drive a state-of-the-art coach and your customers to their destination in safety, on time and in comfort.

We'll look to you to provide exceptional customer service and information at all times, sell tickets, handle money, and help passengers to load and unload luggage.

Naturally, safety is paramount and you'll operate within legal requirements such as tachographs, VDFs and drivers' hours regulations. You'll also be there to ensure all vehicle defects and any incidents are reported in line with company procedures.

You will work closely with the garage, Customer Experience teams and airport terminal staff, as well as company Engineers in the event of mechanical problems.

We're looking for smart, professional people (who are 21 or over) with outstanding customer service skills and a real sense of responsibility. The ability to work shifts (including weekends and Bank Holidays) and a good level of fitness are both vital, as is possession of a driving licence for at least 12 months.
