Lucketts Travel Group has announced it is to carry out a major expansion of its workforce. The company is looking to create another 25 new jobs, which will increase the number of staff it employs by 10%. It has continued to grow its business, recently winning a number of contracts with National Express. There are already 275 people working for the family owned firm, the majority driving a fleet of over 100 coaches. This latest recruitment drive sees it looking for more drivers. New staff will be taken through an intensive course at Lucketts Driver Training Academy, where they will attain the relevant licenses and certification. They will also learn the latest safe driving techniques and skills that increase customer comfort whilst also cutting emissions.
MD of Lucketts Travel Group, Steve Luckett, said, ‘We’re constantly reading in the newspapers how hard it is for people to find decent jobs. Here we are offering 25 people the chance to learn valuable new skills, and build a career with a company that cares about them and their development. With more than eight out of ten people who’ve been through our Driver Training Academy staying with Lucketts for years afterwards we know it’s a good place to work. I’m excited that even more people now have the chance to join our team of highly motivated drivers, offering our customers the best possible service.’
