FED up with your current job and fancy a change in 2019?

Looking for an interesting and varied role which offers excellent rewards and the opportunity to progress up the career ladder? Have a driving licence and enjoy being out on the open road? Working as a mechanical engineer but tired with the same day-to-day monotony? Then look no further than Go North East, the region’s biggest bus operator and third-largest private employer.

We’re hiring bus and coach drivers and engineers across our network of eight depots in Chester-le-Street, Gateshead, Hexham, Percy Main, Peterlee, Stanley, Sunderland and Washington, now.

With a job-for-life ethos, at Go North East we take care of our team members – offering great benefits and career prospects.

Through our benefits site there are plenty of money-saving offers to be enjoyed, and through our talent pool programme, there’s the chance to work across departments to find the right role for you.

Ex-soldier Stephen Lowery joined the company in 1987, after leaving the 3rd Fusiliers. A bus driver based from the Percy Main, North Tyneside depot, he said: “Go North East is a good local employer and, as a driver, you can be part of a team but still have independence. If that’s what you like and are used to being out and about, it’s ideal.”

Alan Bensley worked in sales for 14 years before thinking about a career shift. Beginning as a driver ten years ago, he has worked his way up the ranks and is now a staff manager at the Hexham depot.

Alan said: “The money is good, and I love the independence I have. You’re out on the road and you’re your own boss. I also like that Go North East promote from within and there are chances to progress. I was here less than a year when I was promoted to be a leading driver, and, since then, I have worked across depots and am now a staff manager. I wish I’d joined 20 years ago!”
