Dublin Bus has announced plans to hire 450 drivers.

Ireland’s largest public transport provider is also looking to create 50 new positions for mechanics and engineering operatives.

The recruitment day at Broadstone Depot on Saturday will be its biggest recruitment drive since 1989.

Dublin Bus currently employs almost 3,700 people including over 2,700 bus drivers and 500 engineering employees.

By 2027 the company expects to introduce an additional 330 buses to respond to the anticipated rise in demand for services and to support the delivery of Bus Connects.

A former stay at home mom for 16 years, recent recruit Angela O’Callaghan, decided to return to the workforce in 2019 but wanted to do something "empowering, engaging and challenging". 

"Dublin Bus delivered on all three! Sometimes I pinch myself when I see the bus and think ‘wow I can drive that!’ Anyone who enjoys driving and meeting people will love it!" she said.
