                                                                       Transport Service

     Thank you for your interest in the position of driver for Wimbledon 2007.

     Applicants must have held a manual driving licence for at least five years and have a
     good driving knowledge of SW and Central London.

     All drivers have to work a shift system, which means two drivers share the same
     vehicle and work alternate morning and evening shifts each day. The only drivers
     who will not have to share their vehicle will be those working a split shift, which allows
     them a break during the afternoon before returning for duty early evening giving them
     sole use of their vehicle throughout the tournament. Successful applicants will be
     advised of their shift patterns and where possible these times will be adhered to.
     However, we do require a degree of flexibility from you and reserve the right to
     change the shift times if necessary giving as much notice as possible.

     Car Drivers
     Subject to availability you can select your preference of contract as shown on the
     application form. Please note that on the final Wednesday of the Championships we
     reduce the driving team by a small number and would ask you to indicate on your
     application if you wish to be one of these drivers.

     Salaries will be paid directly into your bank account by the end of July. PAYE and N.I
     will be deducted at the basic rate. The hourly rate is £7.75 plus holiday entitlement of
     1 day for 2-week contracts and 1.5 days for 3-week contracts.

     Training (2 days)
     This is a compulsory part of the driver contract. All new drivers must attend a free
     two-day training programme during the period Sat 9th June to Wed 13th June. We
     will confirm in writing, which days you are required to attend but please note that only
     one of these days will be during the weekend. We cannot employ anyone who does
     not attend the training days allocated.

           Lectures:           Safety issues and procedures
           Practical:          Vehicle familiarisation
                               Driving and road skills
                               Route knowledge

     Should you be selected for interview, these will be held at the All England Lawn
     Tennis Club and we would ask you to indicate on your application form any days that
     you may be unavailable during April/May. Please note you will be required to bring
     along 2 written character references to this interview (at least one should be from a
     professional referee on headed paper).

            All applications must have a covering letter quoting reference W107
