The road passenger transport company Alsa needs to hire 800 new drivers a year “to be able to meet the growth and renewal needs due to retirement” of the company’s workforce, as announced by its president, Jacobo Cosmen. In addition, the company wants to strengthen its female workforce, for which it plans to encourage the incorporation of women “in all positions and performances, also in those positions that were traditionally occupied by men, such as drivers.”

As Cosmen detailed, “driving has changed – a lot and for the better – thanks both to the incorporation of numerous technological improvements in vehicles – which makes force unnecessary for the circulation of buses – and to the fact that most services allow “The drivers sleep at home every day, which facilitates the reconciliation between family and professional life.”

For all these reasons, Alsa offers 150 free training scholarships to become a professional bus driver and, once the course has been completed, a permanent employment contract in the company. The courses are taught in León, La Coruña, Almería, Asturias, Barcelona, ​​Cantabria, Granada, Ibiza, Madrid and Zaragoza, with an estimated duration of two months, between May and September.

Jacobo Cosmen, president of Alsa, from Oviedo, has a master's degree in Business Administration from the University of Valladolid.

«Once the scholarship is over – explains Cosmen –, people who pass the course will obtain the necessary permits to carry out a highly in-demand profession and a full-time indefinite contract at Alsa in the province in which they have completed the training, with an attractive remuneration package. and social benefits, as well as performance recognition systems and continuous training.

Alsa manages a huge network of regular national bus services and connects practically all of the peninsular autonomous communities with each other. In Europe, it also operates in an extensive network of connections through the exploitation of 65 international authorizations that link Spain with most of the European Union and North Africa. In addition, it is present in Portugal, France, Belgium, Switzerland and Germany.

Precisely this Monday, Alsa has received the ‘Equality in the Company’ distinction granted by the Ministry of Equality, through the Women’s Institute, in an event chaired by Minister Ana Redondo. This distinction is a recognition by the Ministry of Equality to companies that accredit excellence in the design and application of equality measures and policies between women and men in the workplace, as reported by the company itself.

The company’s diversity, equity and inclusion policy focuses on disability, gender diversity and cultural diversity within a commitment to “the incorporation and integration of professionals with disabilities; or the increase in the percentage of women in the company, especially in the driving area,” they insisted.
