Over the years Ecocabs have employed a large number of Ex Police officers into the roles of Taxi and Minibus drivers as well as into our Administration team and we hope to employ many others in the coming years.
The reasons for employing staff from this particular career background include;
- Smart and polite
- DRB checks already in place
- Used to working on a shift basis
- Working in busy sometimes stressful environments
Due to these elements we have always found that police officers adapt quickly and easily to our specific working environment and find it to be a pleasant and rewarding place of work. The fact that they are used to working with vulnerable members of society can also help when conducting school runs or providing services for our more elderly and infirm customers.
We find that once many police officers retire, they may either look to commence new employment, generally on a part time basis in order to secure additional income to top up their employer’s pension or they are looking for employment to help ease themselves into full retirement a few years in the future.
Due to the excellent past record that Ecocabs has had with retired members of the Police Force we fully expect to employ further officers for many more years to come.
