Chauffeur/Personal Driver: Since November 2012 I have been working as a Chauffeur for a high-end UK Transfer firm. My duties included dressing smart and formal at all times and having a very focused and professional approach to work as I was transporting very high-class individuals from Government to Law people. As well as transporting my passengers in the most professional, safe and convenient way. I also learned the importance of trust and reliability as you need to build both of these elements with your passengers to sustain the professionalism at all times. I know London and the surrounding cities very well and have very good road knowledge as well as exceptional and professional service for my Passengers. As well as A Chauffeur, I have worked as a common Minicab Driver for a local office which actually started my career and brought me to where I am now which I am very thankful of. The office at the time used a mobile phone software technology called ‘Cordic.’. My role here was to transport to and from Customers destinations and pickups in the local area and central London.

I have also worked as a Delivery Driver for two years at UPS in Cambridge performing duties such as manual handling, sorting parcels into sections booking collections, checking stock levels, gross annual checks, finance levels, unloading and loading heavy vehicles and using the computer to input various amount of information and data as well looking after the store when required. However, my main role here was to deliver parcels across North and Central London to customer homes as well as retail outlets, stores and offices. I enjoyed doing this job as I have always been interested in driving as I like exploring and working at the same time on the road, getting around London. I am well experienced in multi-drop delivery services and I know London really well as well as being able to use PDA devices to authorise deliveries, make adjustments, correct errors and use the built-in GPS. I am also familiar with the process of parcel replenishment and have learned the skills necessary to run a Parcel Depot as I have been trained to become a Service Manager during my time at UPS and can go on to become a manager.

Not only this, I have also worked with Swissport UK at Stansted Airport as a Baggage Handler. This role required me to unload and load aircraft baggage to and from the aircraft starting from the point of check-in and through to the baggage hall. I have a very good understanding of manual handling and health and safety procedures and I also achieved a certificate from the Department for Transport (DfT) for completing health and safety at work modules.

I have my own transport which I can use to commute to work and back home anytime and any day. I am fully flexible and know my way around London and the surrounding counties. I am familiar with and recognise the policies and procedures as I have worked in the Airport Environment before and I am always keeping myself updated.

I am available for interview anytime and any day and I look forward to taking the opportunity to talk with you further about my application.
