At Compass Travel our aim is to always provide an efficient, reliable and friendly service to our passengers. Our reputation is based on the rapport we build with them, and this is something we strive to maintain, with our driving team playing a key part in this. The company has a strong staff team and management structure with a particular emphasis on building team spirit. We are generally considered more “informal” than some larger bus companies and we like to think that our staff feel part of a large “family” within a friendly company atmosphere.

Come and join Compass Travel where the company culture is:

  • Engaging – with teams working well together cross-functionally
  • Motivating – no day is the same, every day is an opportunity to add value
  • Supportive and nurturing – we want you to do well, succeed and develop your career

Opportunities are also available on a part-time/casual basis at all depots.
