Amazing job interview offer by Harrogate Bus Company to store chain’s staff after collapse of Wilko retail chain
and live on Freeview channel 276
The award-winning bus operator is issuing an open invitation to a guaranteed job interview to anyone with a driving licence who currently works at Wilko’s 400 stores – almost 150 of which will close in the next week, including several in Yorkshire.
Just days after administrators failed to find a buyer to take over all of the famous retail name’s stores, Transdev has stepped in to offer a potential change of career for worried former staff.
Newcomers will be given free training to learn how to drive a bus and Transdev/Harrogate Bus Company is offering a highly competitive pay and rewards package for successful applicants – and free travel for new drivers and their partners.
“We’d like to offer all Wilko colleagues who hold a current driving licence a guaranteed interview for a driving role with us.
The firm’s offer of a potential jobs lifeline is part of a high-profile recruitment campaign on buses and on social media by Transdev, featuring its own teams supporting newcomers in a change of career to become a bus driver.
Mr French said: "We’re looking for people who love being the best and are ready to make a fresh start – especially those with retail experience who know how to give our customers a friendly welcome, every time.
“In return, we offer a highly competitive pay and rewards package plus discounts on shopping, health and more via our Transdev Exchange app, and a generous company pension scheme with life cover.”
