On Friday 15 July, the CPT partnered with members Arriva, Stagecoach and Coatham Coaches to host a successful recruitment event for bus and coach drivers at the Riverside Stadium in Middlesbrough.

The event allowed those thinking of becoming a bus or coach driver to take a test drive around the car park in front of the iconic North East venue.

The operators all had vehicles on hand for test drives, as well as information stands for prospective drivers to learn more about career opportunities in the sector. Andrew McGuinness, CPT’s Regional Manager for the North of England said: “It was great to meet people interested in becoming a bus or coach driver at our inaugural recruitment event at the Riverside. We are very grateful to CPT members Arriva, Stagecoach and Coatham Coaches for their support and to Middlesbrough FC for hosting us.

“Being a bus driver is an extremely rewarding career, a role which involves connecting people with vital community-based activities and the chance to make a real difference to people’s lives. After the success of Friday’s event, we are looking forward to hosting more recruitment days with our members in the future.”
