Additional Information

The Bordeaux subsidiary of the transport group Keolis has announced the recruitment of  210 people this year on permanent and full-time contracts. Keolis Bordeaux manages the city's trams, buses, river shuttles and self-service bicycles. It employs currently 2,620 people, including 1,720 drivers. One of the particularities of this major recruiter is that it offers a new path to employees in the second half of their career, who are looking for a stable position in Bordeaux. Forty percent of the 180 drivers who will be recruited this year do not yet have a D licence (which is needed for public passengers transportation),  and the company will provide training.
