Merseytravel helps 100 local people into work

Merseytravel’s Employment and Skills Team has reached the milestone of helping 100 local people into employment in the transport sector, with Lyndsey Stuart of Croxteth securing a bus driver’s job with Huyton Travel. .

Funded through the Local Sustainable Transport Fund, Merseytravel’s Employment and Skills Team offers careers advice to people who want to work in public transport but may not have the skills or experience to compete successfully for jobs. It works with colleges and learning providers to help people gain the qualifications they need.

Cllr Liam Robinson, Chair of Merseytravel, says: “We will continue to work with operators and education and training providers across Merseyside to give more local people the chance to kick-start their careers.”
