National Express have recently expanded its service to include National Express Accessible Transport (NEAT). Ring and Ride is the door-to-door service for anyone who lives in the urban areas of the West Midlands that find it difficult or impossible to use conventional public transport.

We have rewarding roles available for caring Drivers to join our Ring and Ride team in our Walsall Depot. This is much more than a driving role, we are looking for individuals who want to make a difference in the community and provide support to those with transport accessibility needs and have difficulties using public transport services.

Our NEAT Drivers are of the highest quality, having an understanding of care, strong geographical knowledge of the local area and the desire to positively impact the lives of those using the service. We require strong communicators who can build relationships with our regular customers and support those with accessibility needs getting on and departing the bus.

Day to day you will be...
  • Driving a minibus to a scheduled timetable
  • Caring for customers as needed during your services
  • Connecting customers safely to and from various locations in and around Walsall
  • Focusing on Health and Safety of your vehicle by carrying out routine vehicle checks, repairing minor defects and ensuring the inside of your vehicle allows customers to travel in comfort
  • Everyday is different and there will be ad hoc tasks and responsibilities to undertake

If you are caring, supportive, good at listening and building relationships, with a clean Full D1 driving licence and ability to safely drive a minibus, strong local knowledge of the Walsall area, approachable and friendly, we want to hear from you.

As we provide full training and support to bring you up to our high standards of customer service and driving at the beginning and throughout your role, this role is also suitable for Car licence holders too.
