Passenger Transport - A role that gives you a genuine sense of achievement!

We have new positions available in:


  • Ludgershall

  • Amesbury

  • Salisbury

  • Devizes

  • Swindon (10 hrs per week across Wednesday, Thursday, Friday)



  •  
  •  

To join our team of Passenger Assistants you don't need to have all the knowledge, skills, and experience straight away. All you need is patience, empathy, and a passion to want to do good in your community. 

This is a truly wonderful role working in conjunction with our drivers to ensure the care, comfort, and safety of vulnerable students who travel on Wiltshire Council transport to and from school.

You'll be part of a tight-knit and highly supportive team where you can look to those around you for help and guidance when needed. Following mandatory training you will have the knowledge and skills to support passengers into and out of vehicles using specialist equipment such as wheelchair clamps, carry out first aid and evacuate a vehicle in an emergency.

The working times available vary from 15 -  25 hours per week and all depend on what transport route you're assigned to. Journeys take place Monday to Friday at the start and end of the school day and you will be collected and dropped off at your home address. Morning shifts are between 06:30 am and 10:00 am and afternoon shifts are between 1:00 pm and 5:30 pm.

Why us?

In return, for all the fantastic life-changing support, we will offer you:


  • Term Time Schedule - work school term periods and enjoy the school holidays off where you will still receive your full monthly pay, accruing a pro-rata entitlement to paid leave, and for those who wish to work additional hours during the school holidays.

  • Wellbeing services and family-friendly policies to support work-life balance.

  • Strong focus on staff engagement and appreciation.

  • Free training and PPE are provided.

  • Generous local government pension scheme.

  • Access to Wiltshire Rewards - our staff benefit/discount scheme.
