Minibus Drivers (Weymouth, Dorchester, Bridport)

We are looking to boost our team of volunteer minibus drivers.  You will be covered by Weldmar’s vehicle insurance policy, but will need D1 on your driving licence.  You will also have experience driving a multi-seater vehicle.  You will ideally have a Minibus Driver Awareness Scheme (MiDAS) qualification or equivalent.  Otherwise, Weldmar will arrange this training for you following your undertaking to join our volunteer team.

If you are interested please contact David Whiles on 01305 215339.
