Looking for a summer job?

We’re recruiting for an enthusiastic and self-motivated Driver/Valeter to join our Edinburgh Airport Car & Van Rental team over the summer months.


Full time, 4 shifts on and 4 shifts off, 38.5 hours per week, including weekends.

We can offer this position as a three-year, fixed-term contract, so it’s an ideal opportunity for someone who expects to be on a summer break from their studies every year.

About the role

In our summer Driver/Valeter role, you’ll be responsible for ensuring all our vehicles are presented in the best possible condition.

To really shine in this role, you’ll need to love active, physical work, have excellent attention to detail and be a fantastic team player.

  • Other duties to support the branch as required.

Essential requirements

  • A full driving licence.
  • High level of attention to detail.
  • Self-motivation with the ability to work as part of a team.
  • The ability to multi-task.
  • Willingness to participate in training programmes.

Although it would be fantastic if you have previous experience of this kind of work, if you can show us loads of energy and enthusiasm for the job, we can give you training at our Valet Academy, which all new members of staff will attend.
