National operator Take Me Group chatted to a section of its fifty plus female cab driver recruits following its ongoing successful Female in Fleets campaign.
David Hunter, CEO at Take Me (Group) Limited, took to social media to announce the recruitment of over 52 female drivers in the past year. In a video that has since been shared on social media, Hunter introduced Jodie Wright, who spoke with two new private hire drivers that successfully completed the organisation's Female in Fleets Academy.
The taxi and private hire vehicle industry has long been dominated by male drivers, a fact evident in the latest statistics from the Department for Transport.
The Females in the Fleets initiative has worked hard for the inclusion of more women as cab drivers and holds significance beyond just breaking gender stereotypes within the industry. With a diverse workforce, taxi services can better understand and cater to the needs of all members of society, fostering an inclusive environment for drivers and passengers alike.
David Hunter, CEO at Take Me Group, said via social media: “In the last 12 months we have recruited over 52 ladies to our sites, here we catch up with Jodie Wright talking to two new private hire drivers whom have come through our female in fleets academy.”
