“Due to expansion, we are looking for drivers with a valid D licence to join our team, which operates from a very accessible base ten minutes from Dundalk and 20 minutes from Ardee and Newry. 

“We offer excellent rates of pay and a company pension including death in service benefits. 

“Drivers will have the advantage of working with a modern fleet, in a friendly company, with CPC modules supplied free of charge. 

“As an age friendly company, we do not have a defined retirement age, and pride ourselves on being an equal opportunity employer. 

“Drivers receive a company phone and uniform, and ongoing training is an integral part of our culture, as is adoption of technology to make daily duties easier. 

“The team, including some of our drivers, will be at the Crowne Plaza for an informal chat with people interested in joining a company that has set standards.

“We are the only transport company in Ireland to have alcolocks installed – and every Matthews coach and support vehicle carries one of the devices. 

“The company have been recognised nationally as exemplars of best practice in energy management, and we scooped two Energy Awareness titles in four years at the SEAI Sustainable Energy Awards. 

“We became the first public transport company in the UK or Ireland – and only the second in the world – to achieve the new ISO 50001 energy management accreditation. 

“At the heart of our family-run company is the ethos that the customer experience is paramount.”
