Here at Bedford Modern School, the wellbeing of our students and staff is paramount, and we are looking for School Minibus Drivers who share our ethos to support the school in transporting students.

You must hold a current, clean and valid driving licence, D1 unrestricted, or a PCV licence, D1 restricted (car licence obtained prior to 01/01/1997) considered. An advanced level driving qualification and prior experience of transporting children and staff would be an advantage.

Due to the nature of the role, appointed applicants will be required to successfully complete a driving assessment prior to commencing employment.

The school reserves the right to close the adverted vacancy window at any time depending on volume of applications received. We would therefore recommend early completion of your application to avoid disappointment.

The Harpur Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

The successful applicant will be subject to an Enhanced DBS check, references and other relevant checks.  The School may carry out online searches on shortlisted applicants.

The post is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974.  The School is therefore permitted to ask job applicants to declare all convictions and cautions on a self-declaration form in advance of attending an interview (including those which are “spent” unless they are “protected” under the DBS filtering rules) in order to assess their suitability to work with children.”
