MCGILL’S Buses is guaranteeing interviews to all EE staff in Greenock for its vacancies in Inverclyde and Renfrewshire.
EE has today announced plans to leave its Greenock contact centre, moving 450 jobs to Glasgow city centre.
McGill’s — which is owned by leading Scottish businessmen Sandy and James Easdale — was named Public Transport Operator of the Year in 2022, and has its head office in Greenock.
Alex Hornby, managing director at McGill’s Group, said: “The closure of EE Greenock is a significant blow to the Inverclyde community, impacting not just employees but also the entire local economy.
“Whilst many will choose to retain their positions by travelling or relocating to Glasgow, McGill’s Group is keen to provide options for those seeking new opportunities.
“We have a range of roles available across our three depots at Greenock, Inchinnan, and Johnstone which may be of interest to those whose skills could be easily transferable.
“In particular, McGill’s can offer guaranteed interviews for our bus driver positions. No previous bus driving experience is necessary as successful applicants will be provided with full training by our in-house McGill’s Training Academy.
“Our best wishes go to EE employees and we hope they can choose the option that is best for them in the weeks and months ahead.”
All currently available roles can be found at www.mcgillsbuses.co.uk/careers. (Anyone applying for a role at McGill’s Group should highlight in their email that they are an EE employee.)
