What Are The Benefits Of A Driver Recruitment Agency?

Row of HGV Drivers in White Lorries

If you are currently exploring new jobs as a professional driver, such as a HGV driver or Forklift Driver, you will know how challenging it can be to find jobs for suitable roles. Many companies are inexperienced at hiring HGV or Forklift drivers internally and don’t completely understand what the job role entails. If you are searching for new driver jobs, we highly recommend using a specialised agency, such as D&A Recruitment. So, what are the benefits of a specialist driver recruitment agency?


Working With An Expert Driver Recruitment Agency

For anyone who has applied directly for driving jobs with a company, you probably know how frustrating it can be when they don’t understand the difference between HGV Class 1 drivers and Class 2 HGV driver positions. A driver recruitment agency will understand your qualifications and know what job roles you are most qualified for. They’ll be able to help you apply for suitable positions and secure a role quickly and easily. Lorry driver recruitment agencies work with Class 1, Class 2 and 7.5T drivers. As the agency works on this type of staffing day in and day out, you won’t have to explain over and over again your requirements and needs.

D&A Recruitment’s team of driver recruitment consultants will help match your skills with jobs at our many excellent clients.


More Choice of Jobs

A recruitment agency has a much wider range of jobs on offer, as many companies approach them when it comes to hiring HGV drivers. Instead of relying on online job boards or word-of-mouth recommendations, you’ll hear about dozens of positions you would never find by yourself. If you are looking for a non-typical contract, such as a part-time role or flexible role, they are more likely to be able to suggest suitable positions for you. These positions are sometimes not advertised by companies. However, due to the agency’s contacts, they may be able to negotiate something appropriate to your personal situation.

D&A Recruitment helps our many clients recruit professional drivers into HGV Class 1, Class 2, and many more driving jobs. Search for driving jobs on our website.


Support Throughout the Application Process

Job applications and interviews can be draining for candidates and employers. An agency will be there to support you every step of the way and guide you to finding the right driving job for your qualifications. You’ll have someone to discuss your applications with and a point-of-contact you can turn to when you have any questions. As driver recruitment agencies are used to working with HGV drivers, they understand the challenges of the industry and will want you to find a position that’s best for your needs. You’ll no longer feel alone during the job searching process. Instead, you will have someone to search for jobs and encourage you until you secure the perfect role for you.

D&A Recruitment offers a 1-1 experience for all of our candidates, where you will be working with one of our consultants from start to finish.


Expert Driver Training

When you first approach a driver recruitment agency, they will take your details and CV. The team will identify any gaps in your training and offer you additional courses that may help with your job hunt. They want you to enter a job with all of the training you need, which will also benefit the company you are working for. You’ll receive feedback about your applications and current qualifications and be given constructive advice about what you could do to improve for future job applications. A good driver recruitment agency offers so much more than just a job search facility. They will take the time to get to know you as an individual and help you on your journey.

D&A Recruitment also offers driver training courses through D&A Training, our sister company. HGV drivers who start work with us can get free CPC courses too!


Build a Relationship For the Future

With the ever-changing world we live in, it’s understandable that you may have to search for another job role sooner than you would like. If you are just looking for temporary work, or you find yourself without a position again, a lorry driver recruitment agency will be there for you in the future. They will still have your details on file, and you’ll be able to get the same support you received the first time in the future. This ongoing relationship can make job searching seem far more manageable, and you won’t dread the day you find yourself unemployed again.

A driver recruitment agency offers many benefits for HGV drivers. Regardless of what type of driving position you are looking for, they have access to a huge database of positions. You’ll receive guidance and support during every step of the process. The feedback and advice you receive will put you on the path to success and improve your likelihood of landing a position with your dream company. Job hunting can be a challenge for even the most qualified candidates, but a recruitment agency will put you at ease to help you secure your next driving job in no time at all.

At D&A Recruitment we recruit for dozens of excellent companies searching for qualified HGV Class 1, HGV Class 2 drivers, and Forklift Drivers. Get in touch with us straight away if you are looking for work as a professional lorry driver, truck driver, forklift driver and more.
