A pool of minibus drivers, with category D1 on their licence, are required to drive hired minibuses to and from sporting fixtures and occasional other events for Ferndown Middle School.  On most occasions this will happen in the afternoon and will entail driving to another school.  There will, however, be times when an earlier start and/or a later finish are required.

The ideal candidate must hold a clean, valid driver’s licence with PCV (passenger carrying vehicle) entitlement (D or D1).
