Deliver a Driver Scheme (DAD’s)
We know how difficult it can be to find a driver during peak times. That’s why we’ve introduced our Deliver a Driver Scheme.
With Deliver a Driver, Employ Recruitment UK Ltd aim to double our pool of drivers to ensure that we have more HGV drivers available for our clients, particularly to meet demand during peak times to ensure we can provide short notice HGV driver shift cover.
If you are interested in becoming a HGV driver contact us now to get started!
Our selection process is rigorous and thorough as we aim to meet the high standards demanded by our clients while providing the right amount of training and support for our drivers.
All our drivers through this scheme will have completed 35 hours of driver CPC training (which includes WTD and EU Drivers Hours legislation) and have held their licence for a minimum of 6 months. They will undergo our initial driver assessment process to assess their behaviours, attitude and commitment as a professional driver as well as their awareness of Health and Safety issues and fuel efficient driving.
We carry out licence checks with the DVLA at interview and then every 3 months and all drivers are subject to regular driving assessments every 6 months. We assess their training using our onsite assessment and induction process which consists of:
• Driver Digi-Card download to ensure the driver is compliant with EU Driving Hours or WTD Legislation
• Compliance written examination
• Highway Code written examination
• Driving Assessment in the training vehicle
• Health and Safety Induction
• Vehicle Safety Induction
• Procedures for daily tasks – ie: fueling/coupling & uncoupling/Accident Reporting
• Speed Awareness
• Assessment of training needs – training plan implemented (Driver Specific)
Once our drivers have successfully completed all of the above we will assign them to one of our qualified “mentors” to complete training shifts with our clients.
You can be sure that all our drivers are fully qualified and trained to the highest standards and as one of our drivers you’ll be secure that you have the knowledge to do your job well. Contact us now to find out how Deliver a Driver can help you!
