Wimbledon Championships 2007 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.
