A Career With Getaway Cars

Posted: 28th May 2019

Getaway Cars are actively recruiting for new drivers.

If you have a valid, UK full driving licence with a maximum of 6 points, have a friendly outgoing personality, are comfortable dealing with the general public then this could be the role for you.As a self employed private hire driver you could be looking at earnings of £30,000 plus, dependant on hours and shift patterns. The industry is regulated and there are several tests and checks that you will need to undertake and we will happily work with you and advise you where required. We can even give you a taster of what the role involves if you would like to come out with one of our drivers for a few hours to see what the job entails and to make sure it is for you.If you are already a current private hire or hackney cab driver who fancies moving to a dynamic, forward thing young business that wants to offer something more than just a paid trip to a customer or if you are looking for a career change, then Getaway Cars could be your next move. One of our newest drivers, Ian, has made the career change and in his words:

“ I worked as a Contact Centre Manager for over 20 years, and the stress was becoming too much as I felt myself going down a slippery slope. A work colleague mentioned that they were leaving to become a taxi driver and after sleeping on it I thought I would look into what was involved. I used to work with Getaway Cars owner, Pete Hills, many years ago and after an informal chat, I decided that this was worth the gamble. I have never looked back, I was helped with all the processes that you have to go through, I passed my knowledge test first time and I was provided with a hire car until I decided that this was going to be a permanent move. I love the role, you meet great people, go to interesting places and basically, I get paid to drive people around whilst having a chat. There is no stress, no work to take home, I choose my own hours and I’m making a really good living whilst able to spend time with my family. I would recommend this job to anyone who enjoys working with people and also enjoys driving, it is a lovely way to make a living and no two days are ever the same, I’m glad I made the change when I did.”
