WANTED: CLAS­SIC CAR EN­THU­SI­ASTS

Get paid to drive clas­sic cars! Clas­sic hire com­pany seeks new staff

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week - David Mil­loy

A clas­sic car hire com­pany is seek­ing 10-15 new mem­bers of staff to work at its driv­ing ex­pe­ri­ence days and film hire func­tions.

Red­ditch-based Great Es­cape Cars is of­fer­ing two dis­tinct roles. The first in­volves de­liv­er­ing cars for film­ing and re­main­ing on-site to as­sist the film crew. Ap­pli­cants will need to hold a trailer and/or Light Goods Ve­hi­cle Li­cence for ve­hi­cles up to 7.5 tonnes.

The sec­ond role in­volves pro­vid­ing event sup­port for the 80+ road trips and ex­pe­ri­ence days that Great Es­cape plans to run in 2017. Ap­pli­cants should have ex­pe­ri­ence in deal­ing with the public, while ex­pe­ri­ence in a man­age­ment or su­per­vi­sory role is pre­ferred, though not essential.

Great Es­cape Cars’ manag­ing direc­tor Gra­ham Ea­son says: ‘ We’re look­ing to hire well-pre­sented, con­sci­en­tious and per­son­able peo­ple with a “can do” at­ti­tude to work for us be­tween March and Oc­to­ber.

‘ We recog­nise that flex­i­bil­ity is im­por­tant to many peo­ple, so we’re of­fer­ing a choice of full-time, part­time and zero-hours con­tracts. And although we work hard, we want our em­ploy­ees to en­joy their jobs – we don’t do the nine-to-five drudge here at Great Es­cape!’

Ideally, ap­pli­cants for both roles should hold a DVSA Cer­tifi­cate of Pro­fes­sional Com­pe­tence, but Great Es­cape says it will pro­vide the nec­es­sary train­ing for suc­cess­ful can­di­dates if re­quired.

All roles are based at Red­ditch, Worces­ter­shire, but the car de­liv­ery role will in­volve UK-wide travel and overnight stays away from base. The rate of pay for both roles is £8.50 per hour and em­ploy­ees will get reg­u­lar op­por­tu­ni­ties to drive a va­ri­ety of clas­sic cars.
