  • Driving our Tour Coaches on behalf of our providers, for trips such as winter ski tours that last approximately 5 days to a week   
  • Assisting with the running of each trip, taking part in the excursions and activities
  • Interacting with passengers, ensuring they have an excellent holiday and positive journey
  • Ensuring the health and safety of passengers, whilst maintaining the cleanliness of the coach

However, if you do live within commutable distance of our Llanrwst base, the following opportunities are also available to you alongside your primary role as a European Tour Coach Driver:

  • Local bus services, school transport, National Express and private hire. You’ll drive students to school or college, connect members of the local community via local bus services or take rail passengers to the next station to reconnect with their rail journey.

Our Requirements - European Tour Coach Driver (PCV)

  • Hold a full UK driving licence with the relevant Driver CPC qualification
  • Superb communication and customer service skills
  • Friendly, helpful, and professional manner
