Location: South Molton, Devon
South Molton Taxi Service is a well established family business priding itself on excellent customer service since 1979. Providing a range of services from executive travel and airport shuttles through to school runs and a local taxi service, South Molton Taxi Service has built an excellent reputation in the local area as a trusted, friendly and reliable family business.
Due to the increasing demand for taxi services in the local area, we’re seeking professional and customer focussed Hackney Carriage Licence Drivers to join our team in South Molton. Whether you are looking for full time or part time work, you will be responsible for your assigned routes and the customers you are transporting. Due to the range of services South Molton Taxi Service provide, at all hours of the day and night, you will experience huge variety in your routes, from Airport shuttles one day to being on the taxi rank the next or doing a school run the next. No day is ever the same.
As well as being an ambassador for South Molton Taxi Service, you will ensure our modern, high specification vehicles are always clean, inside and out and be prepared to ensure the safety of wheelchair users by participating in wheelchair strapping training. With a full induction provided you will not only develop a good knowledge of our regular driving routes, you will also develop a good relationship with regular customers ensuring they receive a first class service.
Valuing safety and efficiency, the daily checks are important to you; from vehicle safety inspections and checking the scheduled jobs for the day, to delivering customer payments securely and accurately to the office. On returning to the office, you’ll ensure all paperwork is accurately and fully complete, any faults are logged and that the vehicles are locked and in a good condition ready for the next day’s business.
As a flexible team player who is willing to ‘muck’ in, you’ll have excellent communication skills and the ability to deliver high standards of customer care. Known as someone who can be relied on, you stick to the rules, proactively report and solve problems and are always happy to help your colleagues. You accept that, in this industry, there is a requirement to work anti-social hours and you can adapt to the needs of the business to ensure customer needs are met.
Ideally, we’re looking for experienced Drivers who already hold a Hackney Carriage License or a PSV License but, for the right candidate, if you don’t currently hold a Hackney Carriage License, the Company will fund this training.
In return, we offer a competitive salary (increased anti-social hours) and an enhanced rate for work that requires a PSV license, pension scheme, 28 days’ holiday per year (including bank holidays), and the opportunity to be part of a reputable taxi service in the heart of Devon.
