Why work for us?

Competitive Pay
We don’t base our salaries on minimum wage or age limits. We look at each person on an individual basis, and if you have a Level 3 qualification or higher you’ll be paid a rate based on that as well as your experience.

Higher Education Allowance 
If you've completed a higher level, relevant qualification - for example, a degree in Early Years - you're entitled to an allowance, added to your pay across the year. 

Career Progression
We want the best, so we can keep the best. That’s why we always advertise management roles internally first, and support any staff who want to progress up the ladder.

Discounted Childcare
If you’re looking to get back to work after starting a family, we’re here to help make it as easy as possible. If you want to bring your child to Red Bus too, we offer a staff discount on our fees.

Free Uniform
We know how messy childcare can be… but that’s part of the fun, right? To help out we provide free Red Bus polo shirts to all staff, as well as hoodies for the colder weather. If you’re part of the management team you'll even get your job title on the back!

Health and Wellbeing Programme
We want to look after our children’s physical and mental health – and in order to do that, we make sure our staff are looked after too. You’ll have access to a 24/7 support line, counselling options, as well as advice on legal matters too.

Free Training
Our management team will create an individual training plan for you, offering courses that will help you be the best you can be! We use NoodleNow, a third party service full of personal and professional courses for you to choose from! We’ll work with you and your input - if there’s a particular skill you want to develop, we’ll help you get there.

Essential Courses
We want all our staff to feel comfortable, safe and prepared in their roles – that’s why we offer free First Aid, Manual Handling, and Safeguarding training courses as standard.

Holidays, Christmas and Bank Holidays
Everyone deserves time off. That’s why we always close for one week between Christmas and New Year, and never open on Bank Holidays. You also get a holiday allowance to take whenever you like!

Recommend a Friend Bonus
We know how powerful word-of-mouth is, and as a member of Red Bus you have a lot of power! If you recommend someone who joins our team permanently, you could be in for a cash bonus.

Events and Parties
A work/life balance is so important, and there’s nothing livelier than a Red Bus party! We throw a big bash every Christmas. It’s a chance to let our hair down, relax, and catch up with the team. There’s great food, great music, and it’s all free! 

Red Bus Conference
Our business has grown so much, with a Head Office team that helps our on-site staff with recruitment, finances and more. We never want you to feel out of touch, which is why we host annual Red Bus conferences. We all get together to talk about future plans and goals, any upcoming changes, and to celebrate our achievements!

Staff Awards
The conference is also where we host the Red Bus Staff awards. Our staff nominate people in their team who really deserve the shout out, and the management have input too. There are lots of different categories and we love celebrating our amazing staff! 

Pension Scheme
it’s always good to plan for the future. If you enroll in our workplace pension scheme, Red Bus will contribute an amount alongside yours.

Our HR app makes booking holiday, reading through documents, and keeping up to date with company news easy. It’s all available on a mobile app!
