Delta Coaches, one of Teesside’s newest executive coach service companies, has carried out a major expansion, creating a number of new job opportunities.

With the company keen to employ women in a range of posts Judith Haysmore, the former chief executive of autism charity Daisy Chain, is one of the first to seize the opportunity:

“I have joined as a director with a remit to develop the business, especially in the area of providing accessible transport,” she explained. “I was looking for a new challenge and this one had immediate appeal.”

Gary Walton, managing director of Delta, said that the recent expansion, which saw them take over GL Coaches in Middlesbrough, secured 15 jobs and created a handful of new posts:

“ Judith brings her experience of compliance and running a large organisation to the company,” he said. “And her background is invaluable in making sure we offer services to meet the needs of as wide a range of the public as possible.”

But the recruitment drive is not over yet: “In the short term we are looking for qualified drivers as we expand our service provision, and women drivers are especially welcome to apply,” he added.

Applicants need a PCV licence and must meet the high levels of customer service the company prides itself on:

“ Providing a first class experience for our customers is one of our main priorities,” said Judith. “We would love to hear from anybody with the relevant skills and capabilities who is keen to join a enthusiastic team at a young and rapidly growing company.”

Flexibility is also a key requirement as epitomised by Judith who from time to time will leave her main role behind and get behind the wheel of one of the coaches.
