Alternatively, Support Workers can work together so you might ride as a passenger in one of our Company vehicles. However, these vacancies are not available year round, so please check the specific job requirements, as we will always make it clear whether or not you need a driving licence.

How do I get to drive one of your Company pool cars?

Each car is scheduled on certain runs during the day. If your work pattern matches one of our company car runs, you'll be able to use it.
