Due to growth, we have an exciting opportunity for a Trainer Assessor specialising in Passenger-Carrying Vehicles (PCV) to deliver the full apprenticeship framework in PCV.

This is a full time role (although part-time hours would be considered for the right candidate), and will include travel within the East Midlands.  Enhanced DBS clearance is also required.

The Individual

We really value your industry knowledge and experience of PCV, so although holding a relevant assessor or verifier qualification would be great, if you are a competent and experienced bus driver we want to hear from you.  Full training and support will be provided if you have a real passion for sharing your knowledge and developing others.

You will be an effective communicator, able to successfully engage both employers and learners alike, with great customer service skills.  An excellent planner, you will be able to manage your time effectively as well as conflicting priorities.  You will have the ability to coach, develop and mentor people, proven experience of delivering training and assessing learners would be a distinct advantage, but is not essential.

  • 36 days holiday (inc. bank holidays)
  • Contributory pension scheme
