Bus Eireann is looking to get more women behind the wheel

Bus Eireann is looking for new drivers nationwide, and the public transport company is particularly keen to add more women to its roster.

Spokesperson for Bus Eireann Joe Sheridan said the company wants to encourage more women to apply for positions with them, including as bus drivers.

“Traditionally the majority of our drivers have been male but that is changing, and we want to encourage more women to consider it as a career option.”

“We hope that by attending one of our open days, in Dublin, Cork or Galway, interested applicants will see that it is an attractive career option, and one that it is equally available to men and women,” he finished.

An information session for anyone interested in a career with Bus Eireann is being held in Galway this Saturday from 10am to 4pm.

If someone wants to book a place at the information event, they simply have to email Bus Eireann’s local office in Galway

As well as drivers, Bus Eireann is also recruiting a number of Apprentice Heavy Vehicle Mechanics this year and the company is also encouraging applications from females for these positions.

Those attending the open days around the country have an opportunity to meet with women who are currently working as drivers with Bus Éireann, as well as with operational and HR staff who can talk through the role.
