  • Full regular training given, help and dedicated support to completing the taxi driver knowledge course and obtaining the badge.
  • As soon as you enrol you will become a part of our team.
  • We are interested in developing people who already possess skills within the employment market in various sectors which will add value to our Company and enhance the customer service experience all-in-all.
  • Drivers will have a peace of mind and not be under financial pressure to achieve target money to cover high expensive rent, maintenance and insurance as we supply vehicles already licensed; we will also supply equipment for which we will give training on.
  • All our vehicles have CCTV for front and back with voice recording.
  • We can monitor and track the exact whereabouts of every driver so you are never left alone though you are in your vehicle and you could be anywhere in the country. We will always be with you to make sure the customer service experience is one of reliability and punctuality.
  • Drivers generally will receive a minimum fixed number of hours and all drivers are self employed so they may choose their working hours and agree them with us. This will allow lots of flexibility for them and make sure that we have coverage for our ever-increasing call numbers.
  • As a driver not one day will be identical to another though you will be usually in the same vehicle but it may vary. This will give you experience on the roads of a type not similar to any other. After a certain amount of time drivers will acknowledge our Company ethos to be conscious of our environment by turning off engines at certain places. Some of our vehicles have the start/stop technology and some are hybrid, this will slowly be phased out by electric vehicles, thus allowing us to be playing our role in creating a better environment for the future.
  • As a taxi Company we work as a team and drivers will be expected to carry out routine inspections and also maintain the cleanliness of all vehicles and present them to customers at a very high standard.
  • Our goal is not to be the biggest Company; our aim is to be the best at what we do.
  • With this in mind, we play an active role in our local community and are involved in sponsorships and events and have a close relationship with other businesses such as hotels, restaurants and other public venues.
