Leading limo hire provider, Limo Broker, is set to create 50 new jobs over the coming year following the company’s successful move into larger premises in South Wales. Along with its sister company, coach and minibus rental provider, Coach Broker, the two businesses offer national transport hire services in all parts of the UK with all journeys being coordinated from the organisation’s head quarters in Cardiff, South Wales.
Limo Broker and Coach Broker, known collectively as The Transport Broker Group, acquired their new premises in Cardiff’s Ocean Way thanks to a financial support package from Natwest. With a larger base to work from, the Transport Broker Group now has the space to develop its business further by recruiting new staff members, primarily working as call handlers at the company’s call centre.
The organisation has reported impressive growth in recent times and was named the 30th fastest growing business in Wales at the Fast Growth 50 Awards 2011 reporting a 75% growth rate in 2010.
The Transport Broker group estimates that staff at the Cardiff head quarters handle in the region of 1,600 calls a day during peak times, arranging over 15,000 journeys in all parts of the country every year. Those figures look set to rise further as the group aims to employ an extra 50-80 new staff members in the next 18 months according to the Transport Broker Group’s founder and managing director, Tej Randeva.
The ambitious entrepreneur’s projection for the next year and a half were supported by senior relationship manager with NatWest, Andrew Parker, who described Tej’s plans for job creation within the group as “entirely realistic”, before adding that he predicts a “sizeable number of local jobs in Cardiff” will have been created within Limo Broker and Coach Broker by the end of next year.
