DRIVERS WANTED FOR THIS SEASON Due to yearly increases in transfer numbers, we are always in need of back up drivers who often become our main drivers.. areas in need of local drivers are: Plymouth, Salcombe, Kingsbridge, Ivybridge and Lyme Regis. If you live near these towns and fancy moving bags for us, please apply.
Luggage Transfers Ltd occasionally need new drivers to deliver luggage around the coast path and also sometimes inland too. We pass work to drivers on a self employed basis because work is seasonal and cannot always be relied upon. Having said that, our main drivers often earn very good money during the season and driving around the coast is a very pleasant job!
We use both main drivers and reserve/occasional drivers. Our main drivers tend to deliver 5 or 6 days a week from April to October inclusive, and our reserve drivers usually drive 1 or 2 days a week and cover holidays/sickness.
Transfers are assigned to our drivers via a server based management system, and deliveries have to be achieved between 9am and 3pm daily, however most drivers will finish their deliveries by 1 or 2pm. Because of this, these roles often suit best those who do not rely on a fixed income. In particular, the reserve driver role tends to suit the semi-retired person very well - whatever age!
To do this role you need to have your own vehicle and be computer literate with a broadband connection. For a fuller job description, please click on the link below, and when you have read all about it, if you wish to apply you can click on the 2nd link to a job application form, which you will need to print off and complete. If you have a CV we suggest you enclose that too. The address to send it to is on the top of the application form.
We will take applications at any time for anywhere as we can hold them on file for future use. Should we find when the season starts we need a driver near to where you live we will be in touch for more information!
We determine pay by "banding" each journey (ie delivery of luggage) from A to H. Each banding attracts a fixed amount and you will be supplied with the rates in force at the time during the application process. The busier you are the better paid you will be, and we regularly review pay to ensure we retain our drivers.
Many thanks for your interest in driving for us, we will respond to you within 14 days of receipt of your application form.
