Commercial Director, Scotland

Competitive Salary + bonus & benefits

First Bus in Scotland has created a new role as Commercial Director. This represents a great opportunity to deploy your leadership skills in a business with a turnover of over £170m, providing a vital service which makes a real difference to its local community and economy.

As a key member of the senior team, reporting to Andrew Jarvis, Managing Director Scotland, you will develop an innovative commercial strategy focussed on delivering a transformational customer experience and culture change to maximise revenue opportunities. The Commercial Director will also play a key role influencing and contributing to the success of the wider First Bus division.

Based in Glasgow, the role will lead the teams that deliver Marketing, Commercial Development, Public Relations, Pricing, Retail Strategy and Network Planning across First Bus’s businesses in Glasgow, Aberdeen and Scotland East.

We’re looking for an exceptional, customer-focused leader with strong commercial acumen who’s not afraid to challenge the status quo. But we also need someone who can quickly get to the root of a problem and who’s not afraid to get stuck into the detail. Experience of the bus industry is not essential.
