More about the role:

The Fleet Department is looking for Bank Drivers to join our team. Bank staff provide cover for when our permanent staff are absent through holidays, sickness or other reasons. Regular work is available, and in some cases, staff may be able to work up to 25 hours per week, although this is not guaranteed. Full training will be given, and we also supply uniform and allowances for equipment.

We are looking for enthusiastic and compassionate individuals to safely transport clients and pupils using council minibuses and tail lift equipped vehicles to and from various day centre, schools and other establishments as required. All staff are based at our North Depot in Sandy.

Our Fleet Transport team provides safe, efficient transport for a range of residents. They include older people, those with disabilities and children with special needs. The service allows these people to access educational and day care facilities – helping to make Central Bedfordshire a great place to work and live. As a Bank Driver, you’ll be a key part of the team.

For drivers you need a category D1 driving licence, but you don’t need previous experience to be considered for either of these roles. However, you must be prepared to provide a caring, reliable service. You need to be patient, understanding and aware of issues surrounding disability, dementia and special needs. Our aim is to deliver customers safely from door-to-door. You must be smart and professional as well as punctual and polite. Above all, you will treat your customers with respect and dignity.

At Central Bedfordshire Council, we’re passionate about having a workforce that reflects our community. It’s why we’re committed to creating equal opportunities, so that we always embrace diversity.

To assess your suitability for the role, you must demonstrate how you meet the key outcomes, accountabilities and competencies. To do this, you’ll need to refer the Family Profile, Role Profile and Competency Framework which can be found in the Recruitment Pack: Driver Recruitment Pack
