Operator Keolis Downer has confirmed its commitment to boosting employment throughout the Group by targeting all profiles in its drivers and maintainers recruitment campaign.

Keolis Downer is the leader in urban transport in France and is deploying a recruitment campaign until the end of 2022 to fill 1,000 positions across the transport networks (urban and interurban) that the Group operates in the France and in 13 countries around the world.

The campaign is intended to recruit new employees locally so as to bolster operations and maintenance teams in two core professions: driver and maintainer.

Targeting new profiles regardless of their level of education and experience, this recruitment campaign – fully in line with Keolis’ CSR policy – aims to overcome the barriers based on age, gender, sex, social and cultural origin and disability.

This new campaign is an extension of numerous other recruitment actions carried out by Keolis, such as the opening, at the beginning of 2021, of the Group's Apprenticeship Training Centre (CFA), called Campus Mobilités.

This CFA is open to young people between the ages of 18 and 29 interested in becoming a bus and coach driver in one of the transport networks operated by Keolis in France.

Since its opening, a dozen classes of apprentices have graduated. By the end of 2022, over 250 apprentices will have been recruited.

A major employer in numerous regions, Keolis Downer has entered into partnerships with a number of employment and insertion bodies during this campaign (including Pôle Emploi, the retraining agency of La Défense) to get support in its search for applicants who have the necessary behavioural skills and willingness to transition over to these new professions.
