Contractor Opportunity - The Greater Manchester Licensing Network Closing Date: 28/05/2021

Up to 20 hours per week for 6 months initially – remote working

June 2021 start

Are you a taxi licensing practitioner with a thirst for getting stuck into a project?

The Greater Manchester (GM) Licensing Network which covers the ten district Councils of GM are looking for a contractor to support our Minimum Licensing Standards (MLS) project which, following consultation, is now working towards developing a common set of minimum standards covering drivers, vehicles and operators and aligning to the statutory guidance issued in 2020.

We already have one of our Licensing Managers seconded part time to lead on policy and report development, but we need some further support to cover the following areas:

  • Research and analysis
  • Examination of consultation data
  • General project support

A sound working knowledge of taxi and private hire regimes is desirable.

More information on MLS can be found at

For an informal discussion please contact John Garforth, Chair of the Network on 0161 770 5026 or email

Interested parties should submit their CV and supporting letter together with hourly rate to John Garforth. Closing date for expressions of interest is Friday 28th May.
