Tampa, Fla. – (December 2, 2019) – Hillsborough County Public Schools is hosting a second job fair, looking for dedicated and compassionate bus drivers and other professionals to make a positive impact on our students.
On Tuesday, December 3, our district is holding a job fair from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at Lennard High School, located at 2342 E. Shell Point Rd., Ruskin.
Our district needs nearly 50 drivers to immediately fill open bus routes. Plus, our district is looking to hire drivers who can cover routes during driver absences or leaves. Transporting thousands of students to school safely every morning and back home every afternoon is one of the most important jobs in our district.
It is difficult to maintain the high level of service our district and our families expect with the shortage of drivers we are facing. Our students’ education is paramount to the success of our community.
Recruiters will be available to conduct interviews for available jobs. Our district is also seeking to hire bus mechanics, food service workers, custodial operations and after school childcare workers (for our H.O.S.T. program).
District employees are offered:
- A zero premium employee-only health insurance plan paid for by the school district
- Reduced-price child care through our district’s HOST before- and after-school program
