The role of a Chauffeur

A Private or Corporate Chauffeur is hired for clients who require a dedicated and experienced individual to see to the travel logistics of daily life, whether that be trips to the office or to attend meetings, to corporate events, journeys to and from the airport, school runs or outings to restaurants or perhaps the theatre.
A Chauffeur can cover a diverse remit and often pick up light PA duties such as restaurant bookings or assist with errand running whilst on standby. They drive for either a private individual or a corporation and can often provide light security when needed. Please note, a qualified CPO or Security Driver is required in any situation where a tangible level of risk exists on an individual or household.

What duties can a Chauffeur perform?

The role of a Chauffeur

A Private or Corporate Chauffeur is hired to join a team of private household staff, or alternatively within a corporation where they will be in a 1-1 position with one main Principal (in some cases, they may be responsible for driving a wider team of senior management staff).

  • Driving duties could include; trips to the office or to attend meetings, drive Principal/s to corporate events, journeys to and from the airport, school runs or outings to restaurants, the gym or perhaps the theatre.
    A Chauffeur can cover a diverse remit and often pick up light PA duties such as restaurant bookings, picking up dry cleaning, or assisting with errand running whilst on standby.
  • Experienced Chauffeurs are practised with the art of driving luxury vehicles and supercars. Please ensure we are aware of the make and model of your vehicle/s and we can recruit a Chauffeur with bespoke driver training, such as driving luxury vehicles with a long wheelbase for example, or if we are required to identify an applicant who is practised at driving powerful supercars that require a knowledgeable driver behind the wheel.
  • Chauffeurs are also required to valet all vehicles, keeping them in spotless condition inside and out at all times. Deep cleaning will be taken care of at the end of each day, with spot cleaning being executed between every journey.
  • The Chauffeur may also be responsible for the official admin for each vehicle, ensuring any paperwork such as road tax and MOT certificates are kept up to date. Any maintenance and essential repairs are typically arranged by the Chauffeur.

What is the agency's candidate vetting process?

At The Staff Directory, we take great care with the acquisition, vetting and representation of our registered Chauffeurs.

We require all applicants to meet our high standards of due diligence before they can be introduced to our clients.

A high level of skill and experience is required before an applicant can register with us, and formal ID and employment references are checked in advance of any client introduction.

If you would like your chosen candidate to process a background check before starting in the role, this can be arranged for you free of charge.

Could I hire a Chauffeur on a part-time basis?

We have a database of Chauffeurs who enjoy working for 2 or 3 clients on a part-time basis.

The biggest consideration in such circumstances is how frequently you may require them to work outside of their set rota/hours. If they are working for a number of households/corporations, they may not be in a position to prioritise you in times of emergency.

Am I required to provide a vehicle?

In almost all circumstances, our candidates will require their employer to provide a vehicle.
