Go-Ahead expands Ireland workforce

Go-Ahead is seeking to recruit 180 staff at its Go-Ahead Ireland bus business, bringing its total workforce in Ireland to nearly 800 people across all functions. The company is looking to recruit bus drivers, engineers, administration, supervisory and business support functions.

Go-Ahead Ireland currently operates 25 Outer Dublin Metropolitan Area routes, and five Dublin Commuter routes, with a fleet of over 200 buses. The company also operates two services on the recently launched ‘C-Spine’ BusConnects network.

Christian Schreyer, group chief executive, Go-Ahead Group, says: “Go-Ahead is committed to international expansion and Ireland is a key market. We are pleased with the way our bus operations in Dublin have performed since 2018 and we’re delighted to be creating new jobs for the local community.”

Andrew Edwards, managing director, Go-Ahead Ireland, adds: “This is an important milestone for Go-Ahead Ireland, and we are delighted to announce this growth. Since entering the market, we have steadily increased our presence, focusing on providing service excellence to the communities that we serve.”
