Our school vision is clear that students learn best when they have plenty of opportunity for trips and visits outside of the school environment.

Northfleet School for Girls are seeking to recruit Minibus Drivers on a casual relief contract basis. The work is not guaranteed and hours will vary throughout the school year and maybe outside of 'normal' school hours.

To be considered you must:

  • Have held a driving license for at least 12 months which is clean with a category D1 designation
  • Be willing to undertake an enhanced DBS check
  • Be punctual and reliable

The successful candidates will be contacted in advance with details of trips/visits and will need to confirm their availability to drive the school minibus on a pre-agreed visit to mainly local sites but with some farther afield. Previous experience of a driving role would be advantageous but not essential as training will be given. School staff will always be present during journeys to supervise students.

Kent County Council and all its personnel are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

The appointment is subject to satisfactory references, medical clearance and an enhanced DBS check.

We reserve the right to appoint before the closing date.
