County Hall, Morpeth, NE61 2EF
The team are responsible for organising passenger transport services for a number of clients, by far the biggest is for children, attending mainstream and special schools. We also arrange transport for older students attending sixth form or further education colleges. Transport is also organised on behalf of social workers for vulnerable children and adults attending care homes and day centres. Being a "transport organiser" involves planning the school transport network, procuring, contract managing and paying suppliers. We also manage the supported bus network whereby the Council offer subsidies to bus companies to operate services in primarily rural areas where it is not viable for them to operate commercially.
The successful apprentice will undertake administrative support for the whole team but with a special emphasis on providing assistance to those officers who are involved in ensuring our transport providers operate compliantly and in accordance with our conditions of contract.
