Salary Grade: 1C
Working Pattern: Term Time Only
Contract Type: Casual

We are looking to recruit casual passenger assistants to join our team. You’ll be responsible for escorting students with Special Educational Needs (SEN) from their homes to school or college. You will be responsible for ensuring their care, comfort and safety on the vehicle. This is a challenging role but one that is highly rewarding and fun.

You will be required to be available for work before and after school, on a casual basis, term time only. Casual staff are sometimes required at short notice, often early in the morning and for operational reasons are required to live within the Salford boundary or able to reach a collection/drop off point within the boundary. It is beneficial for applicants to live in or near Salford. The nature of the role allows flexibility to fit around your other commitments. Casual staff can progress to a permanent post as these become vacant, as permanent posts are filled by casual staff who wish to be considered.
