On the day you will meet some of our current female drivers and inspectors who will share with you their experiences of working with Dublin Bus. You will get the opportunity to drive a bus with one of our professional driving instructors. We will give you a tour of our Central Control centre, we will take you through the recruitment process for bus drivers and discuss the various benefits of working for Dublin Bus.
