Senior Drivers Smile In Front Of Bus

Get started with a new driving career today and work while you travel.

Do you love socialising and being in the heart of your community? Or do you want a lifestyle that allows you to travel? If that sounds too good to be true – don’t fret, you can have your cake and eat it too at ComfortDelGro Australia (CDC).

We’re on the hunt for ambitious, caring, and reliable like-minded people to join our growing operations across the country. All you need are great customer service skills, a car licence, and a good driving record, and we’ll help you with the rest.

There are many reasons why driving a school bus is the perfect career move – here’s a few reasons why now is the perfect time to get started! 

1. The Perfect Work-Life Balance

Life as a bus driver means split shifts – morning and afternoon driving, and the rest of the day is yours! These kinds of shifts are great because you can spend the rest of your time doing what really matters to you.

2. You’re a People Person

Meeting new people can be very rewarding for people who love interacting with others. You’ll need to have strong communication skills, but you’ll often have some great and interesting conversations with people both young and old.

3. Exploring Our Great Country While Getting Paid!

Oh, the places you’ll go! With depots in spots like Alice Springs, Darwin, the Sunshine Coast, Central Queensland and the coast of New South Wales (think Byron Bay and Coffs Harbour), you’ve got even more chances to explore our amazing country.

4. You Enjoy Working With Children

If children bring you joy, working as a bus driver can be very rewarding. The duties of a school bus driver aren’t just confined to picking them up and dropping them off. You can be a great role model in young children’s lives and help them get the day started off right.

5. You Just Love Being Behind the Wheel

Being behind the wheel of a large, powerful vehicle might be intimidating to some, but to others, it’s a wonderful challenge! If spending the day in a coach on the road excites you, this is the perfect job for you. Prefer to downsize? We’ve got minibuses too!

6. You’re Calm Under Pressure

There’s a multitude of factors that could potentially stress you out on the road – bad weather, road construction and difficult passengers. But if you’ve got plenty of patience and don’t lose your cool, you’ll be great.

7. No Need for a University Degree

Our drivers are from all walks of life and levels of education. At a minimum, you’ll need a car licence and a good driving record, and we’ll train you for free!

If this sounds like you, we’d love for you to get in touch! We’re offering full-time and part-time jobs, but if you are just looking for a sea change for three to six months, we will welcome you with open arms.

Whether you’re looking for a long-term career with guaranteed income as an essential worker, a grey nomad on a working holiday, or seeking a few extra dollars as you approach retirement, you’ll join a family of drivers and carers of all ages and stages who love what they do. And we know you’ll love it too.
