Who we need?

Even though the majority of our work is done during business hours, we are a round-the-clock organisation that completes critical and urgent tasks for the NHS as well as other clients.

Because of this, it is imperative that we have drivers on our Out of Hours (OOH) schedule.

By doing this, drivers receive a higher mileage rate for of their work in addition to an increased payment for the OOH job allocated. More details on the OOH rota will be provided later, but in essence, we ask that you commit to being available in a rostered fashion during a combination of weekend and weeknight shifts.

You would then be eligible for the higher rates.

We do advise having your own van, which should be in good operating order, properly maintained, and kept neat and organised.

Once more, you can receive a better rate if you commit to have authorised lettering on your vehicle.
