The DVSA are currently on a recruitment drive for new driving examiners.

However, there is less than a week to go or applications to be accepted.

Positions are available in England, Wales and Scotland. It is part of a campaign to increase test appointment availability as demand is far outstripping supply. This issue of waiting times is set to get worse as society unlocks from pandemic restrictions and cancelled tests are rearranged. Not only this, but more people are likely to avoid public transport post lockdown, especially as the commute to work return to more traditional levels.

Is it for you?

Working for the Civil Service includes a number of benefits, as well as ongoing training and other job prospects.

There is just one week left to apply as part of February’s recruitment drive.

The roles are based on a two-year fixed-term contract, with the possibility of being made permanent.

Pay is just over £26,000 per annum after an initial training period of six weeks.

You can find out more about the role and how to apply on the Civil Service jobs website.

Applications need to be received by midnight on Monday 1 March 2021.
