Dysons teams up with WomenCAN to encourage women bus drivers

Bus license fees will be paid for and support will be given throughout the whole process

The WomenCAN charity have partnered with Dyson Group to provide comprehensive training programs and mentorship for women wanting to enter the industry.

Through the initiative, WomenCAN and Dysons will provide support for women to get their heavy rigid license, payment of all Bus Licence & additional fees, and all the support needed to successfully pass the Dyson Group recruitment process.

Those who apply will also access peer support through WomenCAN’s Placement Circle, which provides a peer supported transition to vocational training and onto employment for women who have disconnected from the workforce.

Dyson cultural ambassador Lib Dyson says Dysons is grateful to collaborate with such an amazing organisation.

“WomenCAN has left a lasting impression on us, and we highly recommend their services to any employer who wants to be part of a transformative movement,” she says.

“They are making a real difference in the lives of women, and we are honoured to have been a part of their journey.”

WomenCAN Australia was set up in 2019 to help women get skills and jobs, often having been out of the paid workforce for years providing care to others. 

The selection criteria for the programs are:

  • Women with interest in working in bus transport with ability to travel to Bundoora, Reservoir or Shepparton Depots in Victoria

  • Women from migrant/refugee backgrounds are encouraged to apply

  • Hold full Australian Drivers licence for at least 24 months with good driving track record

  • Have Australian Work Rights​ (Temporary Visas Included)

  • Willingness to obtain Working With Children Check (WWCC), police check and ability to pass medical assessment
