Would you love to be part of a professional engineering team that maintains and repairs a modern and varied fleet of vehicles?
If that sounds like something you want to be involved in, we'd love to have you on board - and we'll give you all the training and development you need to get to where you want to go!
Stagecoach Cumbria & North Lancashire operates over 280 vehicles across 5 sites and our Carlisle team are looking for people from a background in vehicle electrical engineering to be part of our growing team. You may be in a truck / HGV, rail, light commercial or automotive setting at the moment, but fancy a change of vehicle to enhance your skill-set?
Likewise, if you've got PCV experience, you'll still find new opportunities to learn.
You've probably seen some of our vehicles driving around Carlisle, transporting our fantastic customers on over 20 million journeys across Cumbria & North Lancashire every year.
Those customers rely on our services to get them to work, to the high street, to hospitals, to days away and nights out - and as part of our engineering team you'll be a key part in making sure our vehicles are in tip top condition to do just that. It's a really important role within our depot, so we'll make sure you're as looked after as our vehicles are!
Don't worry if you've not worked on buses before - we'll train you on everything you need to know, and you'll be supported by a great team of fellow Electricians, Mechanics, Technicians and Engineering Managers who all pull together to do a brilliant job.
And interestingly it's not all depot-based work - you could well find yourself out and about dealing with vehicle issues on the road, so it won't always be the same four walls you're looking at!
Aside from the reward of helping to deliver an incredible experience to our customers, there's plenty more we can offer:
Job Security - we've been going since 1980, we turn over £1.3bn and we're not planning on hanging our boots up anytime soon!
Safe Environment - we provide boots, overalls and specialist equipment so no need to worry about being safe and protected, or having the right kit for the job.
Free Travel - for you and your companion on our buses. That means on your days off you can be off shopping for free without worrying about parking the car, or heading off for a day in the city without paying a fortune in petrol or train fares!
Great Income & Benefits - up to £13.09 per hour to be precise, plus a good pension scheme to look after you after you've hung up the spanner or multi-meter!
Promotions - if you're happy sticking as an electrician then that's absolutely fine by us...but if you do want to progress we'll support you every step of the way. You will be given exposure to work which will develop your skills and experience to allow you to progress your career further. The vast majority of our Engineering Managers and Directors are home grown talent - so that could very well be you in the not too distant future!
So, if you have an engineering background with a vehicular slant (truck, haulage, automotive, plant, rail, farm - if it moves, it's good experience for working on buses) and have a passion for great work with a great team, then we can't wait to receive your application
