Local bus operator offers engineering training roles

Keighley Bus Company operator Transdev is marking National Apprenticeship Week by creating three new engineering apprentice roles.

The bus firms - which operates services across Keighley, Skipton and Ilkley and has depots across Lancashire and Yorkshire - says successful candidates will get a 'launch pad to build a successful career in the transport industry'.

The three-year apprenticeships will lead to qualification as a Heavy Vehicle Service and Maintenance Technician – a vital role which ensures every bus on the road is reliable in service, and above all, safe.

Meanwhile, 20 of Transdev’s most promising talents are also beginning their own apprenticeships as National Apprenticeship Week begins today - with training roles across HR, IT and leadership.

All the apprenticeships are being delivered through the bus operator’s own in-house training and recruitment division, ‘the ACADEMY by Transdev’. And it's not just those starting out their careers taking part - Transdev's Operations Director Vitto Pizzuti is also enrolled on a course!

Vitto said: “I’m studying for a Level 5 Diploma in People Management – it’s an HR qualification developed by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development. I’m expecting the coursework to be challenging at times, but also rewarding in that it’ll equip me with more skills and confidence to lead and develop our amazing team of people throughout the operations side of our business.”
