We loved meeting you

4 weeks ago Fri 6th Mar 2020

We loved meeting so many of you on Thursday 12 March, but if you missed the main event, don't worry, as we can still meet you too.

We are offering 30 fast-tracked job opportunities to local ex-Flybe or Southampton Airport staff

We are the local Eastleigh-based bus operator, Bluestar, and we have vacancies that may well be ideal for for ex-Flybe or Southampton Airport employes who may be interested in a new transport career in a stable environment.

We know Flybe held a major presence at nearby Southampton Airport - and many people who worked for them will live locally.

We are saddened by this latest development, and we know it will have a knock-on effect among those who live within our community. Here at Bluestar we are always looking to recruit those who are skilled in customer service. We would like to invite ex-Flybe or Southampton Airport staff to our depot at Barton Park in Eastleigh which is just up the road from the airport, to meet our team and find out more about working with us.

This is a time for our community to pull together, and we understand the need to move quickly, in terms of offering employment. With this in mind, we are offering 30 jobs to ex-Flybe or Southampton Airport employees. We will also fast-tack them through the recruitment process, to minimise any loss of earnings.

This is a fantastic opportunity for anyone looking to try something new. Those with a customer service background will be particularly welcome but we would also be happy to hear from those that have carried out other roles at the airport such as baggage handling, security and ground staff/ramp agents. It doesn’t matter if you haven’t driven a bus before; as long as you have the aptitude, then we’ll teach you the rest.

Successful applicants will receive full training for a PCV licence, uniform and free travel for themselves and a nominee.

Fill in this short survey and we'll contact you to arrange an appointment.

Here is some useful information about our bus driver vacancies
