Ensuring quality

Transport recruitment is in our DNA. It’s what we do, and all we do. Our specialised, dedicated account managers talk your language. We understand the market and know what clients and drivers are looking for – so you can be sure we’ll be matching you with the right driver. And if we’re not sure, we won’t fill the job until we are.

Our stringent, highly selective registration and recruitment process includes extensive testing covering geographical awareness, tacho compliance and Highway Code, using a questionnaire co-written with the FTA.

We’re also one of a few driver recruitment companies that analyse tachos to see drivers’ recent work history.

Ensuring compliance

How can you be sure that drivers are conscientious about observing the law, and understanding their responsibilities?

How can you tell what driving experience they have – for example multi-drop or trunker?

Our answer (unlike most others) is to carry out a tacho analysis at registration. We turn drivers away if we find serious infringements.

  • Full tacho analysis at driver registration
  • All our consultants and account managers are FTA trained
  • Helping you protect your OCRS score
  • Our own dedicated compliance department

Sourcing candidates

The majority of our drivers come via personal recommendation from our existing known and trusted drivers. Our refer a friend scheme pays £200 for each referred driver who successfully passes our stringent testing and is placed in a job.

We’re also creating new drivers to help meet the national driver shortage – currently estimated to be around 50,000. As well as making full use of job boards we train from scratch – sometimes taking the best of our warehouse workers and training them up to HGV1. We also run an apprenticeship programme and buddy system with our sister company Train4Talent.

We take worker welfare extremely seriously. So we talk our drivers’ language, know what they’re looking for and who would suit each client, carry out thorough vetting and fast placement, and pay well and on time.

Managed service

Do you need a large volume of drivers? Would you prefer to have them permanently managed by us?

If so, our managed service model could be right up your street. It’s a service we already provide for some of our larger clients.

Our managed service includes looking for every possible way to improve driver performance, efficiency and fuel economy.
