Commercial / Private Hire Drivers


About this job

The rota consists of a mixture of contract, excursion, private hire, rail replacement work and some local TfL duties. All commercial work will be paid at £146.08 per day. Rail replacement work will be paid on an hourly basis. Any garage/service either stand-by or in-service work will be paid at your garage rate. You may be required to work under EU regulations and on this basis your rota & week’s work starts on a Monday at 00:00hrs until Sunday 23:59hrs. You will still receive a weekly rota showing a week from the Saturday till Friday and this will include a bus allocation sheet for each duty. EU regulation record keeping will also be your responsibility.

Owing to the type of work involved, we are looking for conscientious, well-motivated individuals capable of working under pressure to achieve the high standards of courtesy, driving skills and flexibility expected by our commercial customers.

You should have a good work & driving record, free from blameworthy accidents and customer complaints for 2 years.


You will need to be ultimately flexible and accept changes, as the nature of the business can generate alterations to your allocated work, sometimes at short notice.

Due to the concentration of the commercial work in June, July and August, opportunities for annual leave will be limited during these periods.


If you wish to be considered for these special rotas, please submit a C.V. with a covering letter attached as one document.


Applicants should clearly state any dates when they will not be available to attend an interview.

The following information should be included in your application:

Name and length of service
Details of previous experience and other qualifications
Grade and present salary
Location, office and section in which employed.


The closing date for this role is 31 May 2019.
