WOULD-be bus drivers have the chance to take the wheel with Salisbury Reds on Sunday - thanks to a special event at the Livestock Market.

The bus operator is on the look out for new additions to its team and is organising a ‘try it’ day, for anyone wishing to see if a driving career is for them.

“We know there are some potentially excellent bus drivers out there,” said Salisbury Reds operations manager, Alex Chutter.

“They may currently be in a completely different career but considering a change. Many could even have thought about joining our team in the past but had concerns about driving a large vehicle.

“This is their opportunity to see how easy it is. Our experienced managers and driving instructors will be on-hand between 11am and 2.30pm to guide people through our mini off-road course at the Livestock Market this Sunday.”

Salisbury Reds is particularly keen to meet potential recruits with good communication and customer service skills.

“These attributes are very important because the way we treat out customers sets us apart,” added Alex. “We don’t expect applicants to have a PCV licence because we will teach them how to drive. They just need to turn up and see us on Sunday, see if they’re suited to the role, and we’ll do the rest.”

The event takes place at Salisbury Livestock Market between 11am and 2.30pm on Sunday, November 20. There is no need to book an appointment, potential drivers need just turn up on the day.
