Job Description

Here’s an exciting opportunity to join the Reading Buses senior leadership team. It’s a chance to break outside the box to really make your mark at a company offering significant freedom matched with strong local authority support.

If you’re an ambitious operations professional looking to exercise your knowledge and skills in an innovative environment, then a unique and rewarding challenge awaits at one of the UK’s leading operators. We just ask that you have an eye for detail, strong leadership and strategic vision, plus a desire to deliver.

We are expecting 2023 to be a very exciting year, now we’ve adjusted to the post-pandemic world. We have substantial bus priority schemes, vehicle investment, enhanced ticketing and extended services all in the pipeline to help generate passenger growth. This role will be focused on delivering growth, not contraction.

Reporting to the Chief Executive Officer, the Operations Director will look after 450+ drivers and a well-resourced management and supervisory team across Reading Buses, Thames Valley Buses and Newbury & District.

You’ll need to demonstrate extensive experience with operations management and budgeting at company or depot level and have all relevant qualifications. Salary will be commensurate with experience and responsibility.
