It has long been recognised that the transport and logistics industry has a high turnover of staff, that’s why you need to be sure that your staff supplier is constantly switched on and ready to meet your shortfalls whenever and wherever they might occur.
That’s why so many Transport, haulage and storage and many other firms across London and the South East are turning to Driving Appointments for their human resources needs. Before your next appointment you should ask yourself: does your current supplier offer all of this?
Since opening for business 7 years ago, Driving Appointments has made it policy to only recruit consultants who are professionals with experience of recruitment for the transport and logistics industry, or who are former drivers themselves. That way they know what is required to be successful.
Driving Appointments is not a franchise; we are not part of a chain belonging to a high street giant. This means you are not just another number. We are less concerned about quantity than we are about quality. We have been and always will be completely customer-focused. The signaller of our achievement is not the figures on a spreadsheet but the satisfaction of our clients.
In the transport industry the day doesn’t begin at 9 and end at 5, therefore neither does ours. We are market leaders in sourcing quick temporary, contract or permanent placements because we have access to cutting edge recruitment software and technology. Whenever and wherever drivers, non-drivers or warehouse staff are needed, Driving Appointments is only a phone call away.
Whether Temporary or Contract and whatever your requirements we’ve got you covered. We can provide HGV/LGV/PCV drivers, van drivers, car drivers, logistics managers or planners, warehouse staff & forklift truck drivers and a vast array of professional non-driving personnel available. We also have hybrid workers: drivers willing to drive/warehouse/FLT/driver’s mate if needed.
Clients who want to outsource their drivers/Temps to us or want to recruit candidates exclusively to work for the client but on our books. There are also further discounts if the client finds or has the candidates in mind.
All of our drivers and other candidates have been fully vetted, we’ve performed all the necessary background checks, made sure all the paperwork is in order and interviewed them in depth. Photo IDs and CRB checks are available when required, as well as free CPC and licence checks. We have highly trained and experienced consultants who know the qualities you are looking for and can ensure the candidate supplied is the best for your business.
Whomever you need, for however long they’re needed and, if you have been supplied with a temp and you like what you see (which we’re sure you will), you can easily turn that short or long term appointment into a permanent one. Permanent placement fees are discounted or free for our clients and the payment of fees can be spread over time. Temp to Perm options from the outset are also available.
You can’t beat a bit of free advertising! You can let all our candidates know that jobs are available with your firm so they can apply specifically to come and work for you.
All of our drivers and warehouse staff are covered in case of any unforeseen eventualities including Driver Negligence cover.
We are the best at what we do, we employ the best staff, we recruit the best candidates and we work with the best clients – so it stands to reason we’d offer the best business terms and payment options available anywhere.
If you can find a cheaper alternative of the same terms to Driving Appointments, then we will match that price. Although if you did find the same levels of service and quality of candidate who is well paid, anywhere else for less we would be very surprised!
There are no little hidden extras. In fact you will find every aspect of our business together is conducted with openness and honesty. It’s the way we work, the way we’ve always worked; it’s something that our clients have come to appreciate from us and why they keep us as their preferred staff supply partners.
Driving Appointments has offices in Croydon, Wimbledon, Twickenham, Weybridge & Chertsey, and Chessington. In April this year we’re opening in Leatherhead; in the summer we’ll be in London W10. Wherever you are in Greater London and the South East, Driving Appointments is your local resource for driving recruitment.
