Opportunities & Training
The rewards are there
We all want to be rewarded for our work, but that often goes beyond money, we also want to feel valued and recognised for the work we do. At Britannia we value our colleagues and invest heavily in things like; Technology, Training and Advertising.
Productivity is a key element to any successful business, but great value should also be placed on job satisfaction. We have worked hard to develop systems designed to increase the earnings potential of our drivers and at the same time improve the service we provide to our customers. It really is a ‘win-win’ situation that benefits everyone.
So how does this work, it’s really quite simple and it relies on our ability to analyse the data we have and forecast trends and volume requirements. With this we have developed a system that states the amount of vehicles we need to deliver the optimum service levels with minimal wastage. But what does this mean for our drivers? Well again it’s quite simple, we will inform you of the best times to be available and at the best locations. The aim of this is to allow our drivers to maximise their earnings in the shortest time possible thereby reducing ‘down-time’ and unnecessary fuel consumption.
Flexibility is the Key
We are always looking for committed drivers who want to work hard and be rewarded well for their efforts. Drivers have always enjoyed the flexibility that comes with the job. We want to enhance this with improved rates by operating during the most productive times and in conjunction with a flexible rota system. It does not benefit anyone to have a number of cars chasing few calls, it is better for all to have the right number of cabs to cover the forecasted call volume.
Ideal for many people who want to enjoy all the benefits of working with Britannia but who cannot or are unable to provide their own vehicle. All our Rental Cars are safety checked and maintained by our own highly trained maintenance teams. This provides many with their first steps to being self-supported but with the invaluable help and support from a major operator. New drivers are required to undertake specific training which ultimately provides them with a certificate of achievement to NVQ/BTEC level. This is undertaken in-house within our purpose training facility and trained by Britannia people.
Drivers have the option to provide their own Insurance or select Britannia’ Insurance which is the preferred choice of many. It is a legal requirement, therefore we will always check the level of provision is suitable.
For those who have a suitable vehicle Britannia is the ideal choice as our settle rates are some of the most competitive in the region. Added to this is our ability to maximise your earnings via our ‘Intelligent’ systems, these mean you can spend less hours and reduce your cost of fuel, thereby not only generating further income but with better profits.
Britannia Taxis and Britannia Academy pride themselves on recruiting drivers that are professional and fully trained to deal with all aspects of carrying passengers in the private hire and hackney taxis.
All new drivers complete a two week programme to enable them to obtain their Knowsley, St Helen’s or Liverpool badge. The course consists of BTEC level 1 customer service, conflict management and level 2 NVQ Introduction into the role of a professional taxi and private hire.
The Britannia training academy coordinates a course that is custom-built for existing drivers. The course consists of; the transportation of laboratory specimens, Safe guarding of vulnerable adults, safe guarding & child protect workshop. VIAT ( visual impairment awareness training ) guild dog training, wheelchair training and first aid at work.
Once working for Britannia Taxis there will be the opportunity to complete a level 3 apprenticeship diploma in customer service.
