Operations manager, James Williams, will be on standby at the bus station, opposite the city train station, to answer questions about careers with Stagecoach West.

"Come and talk to us about our opportunities to join the Stagecoach team," said Mr Williams, who is based at the Gloucester head office of the business, which celebrates 25 years this year.

"We have full time and part time driving roles available, with flexible hours to fit around you. We offer great pension benefits, competitive holidays and good rates of pay. Plus, you get free bus travel in your local area for yourself and a companion.
