Why Consider Driver Jobs In Sri Lanka?
The last five or so years have seen very strong growth in Sri Lanka, both in the hospitality industry and in infrastructure development as well as in the wider economy. This has led to a great increase in the supply of open positions for driver jobs in Sri Lanka, with vacancies for full time jobs and part time employment alike. In tourism, opportunities exist as a personal driver to show tourists the delights of the country, providing local knowledge and advice, while there is always a demand for knowledgeable locals to work as a taxi driver for the cab companies, ferrying tourists efficiently around the crowded streets with the minimum of fuss. The booming construction industry means there are plenty of driver job vacancies for heavy vehicles of all types, whether it be on construction sites themselves or in haulage around the country. These jobs offer a good opportunity to move on to white collar jobs in logistics. With business performing so strongly, many executives are looking for drivers to take them safely and comfortably from meeting to meeting, and these positions offer among the best wages and working conditions in the sector.
Requirements for Driver Jobs in Sri Lanka
Other than the relevant clean driving licence (for light and/or heavy vehicles) no particular qualifications are usually necessary for a driving job in Sri Lanka. However, most driver positions ask for a High School education level (GCE, O-Level or equivalent). Experience is always a bonus, with many positions asking for a minimum of two years, and a minimum age requirement of 25 years is common. The applicant for driver job vacancies should have the ability to drive vehicles with both manual and automatic transmissions. Especially in the tourist sector, a good working knowledge of English is desirable, and this can also be very helpful for business drivers too. As far as payment goes, a driver salary in Sri Lanka will depend on which kind of vehicle is driven and in which industry. Overtime may be available, and some personal driving positions also include accommodation and food.
