The bus company Go Ahead, which is to begin operating 10% of Dublin Bus routes later this year, is hiring.

It's looking for 425 workers, 350 of which will be bus drivers.

It's also looking for  engineers, maintenance support, mechanics, planners, operational and administrative personnel. 

More information on how to apply can be found here.

The company will operate 24 suburban bus routes. They are the 45A, 75, 184, 63, 185, 111, 59, 17A, 102, 33A, 220, 33B, 104, 18, 76, 239, 270, 238, 76A, 236, 17, 114 & 161. There will also be one new bus route, the 175 running from City West to UCD.  

Managing Director for Ireland, Ed Mills, says you only need a regular drivers license to apply.

"We are looking to take on people, they only need a car license and we'll provide all the training and support they'll need to actually get their bus driving license. We're also interested in existing license holders as well."

The company says drivers can expect to earn up to €32,000 a year with opportunities for further earnings with overtime, a contributory pension scheme, free uniform, travel benefits, paid holiday, structured working patterns with guaranteed hours, death in service benefit and opportunities to work elsewhere within the Go-Ahead Group, both here and overseas. 

Recently it emerged Dublin Bus is to lose its distinctive colours once Go Ahead starts operating. That's because both fleets will have the same livery bearing the logo Transport for Ireland.

However the National Transport Authority insists its not stripping Dublin Bus of its branding and its logo will still feature on the new-look double deckers.
