Donegal ETB recruit for HGV and Bus Driving Courses

By | Jobs, News | No Comments

Donegal ETB is currently recruiting for their HGV-Rigid and Bus Driving with Tourism Visitor Care programmes that will help learners secure jobs in the freight and passenger transport industries respectively.  These employment support programmes offer persons seeking employment an excellent opportunity to acquire the skills, knowledge and receive support to secure employment as drivers in transport businesses throughout Donegal and further afield.

All of the driving programmes incorporate a healthy mix of theoretical learning, practical skills training and a period of work placement with a local employer.  The programmes are ideal for learners wishing to follow a career in driving.

Tara McGuire, recruitment officer with Donegal ETB said “this is an excellent opportunity for those who wish to pursue a career in the transport industry, particularly for those who wish to work locally here in Donegal”. “All freight has to be brought in and out via road transport”. “There also appears to be lots of opportunity in the passenger transport industry”. “Bus Eireann are currently in the middle of a recruitment drive”.  Tara continued, “The really great thing about these driving courses is that the learner will gain additional qualifications that are highly sought after by employers.”

According to the report Addressing the demands for Skills Freight Transport, Distribution and Logistics Sector in Ireland, 2015-2020 published in 2015 by the Expert Group on Future Skills Needs (EGFSN) identified a significant demand for HGV Drivers and other occupations within the sector. The Donegal ETB driving programmes have been specifically designed to meet these growing needs.
