Sadie Weston, managing director of Employ Recruitment UK Ltd based in Ashbourne, said: “At the end of February we were the first agency to successfully pass the FTA Driver Agency Accreditation Scheme audit.
“What that gives to our customers and drivers is a guarantee that we operate within the highest industry standards, and it is a confirmation that our work processes and procedures are effective and safe.
“We have always prided ourselves on our compliance and driver management measures, and as a company we’ve talked about the need for a national benchmark for agencies to raise standards within the transport and distribution industry.
“When I met with the FTA to discuss the framework of the scheme it was clear it matched with our own core values as a business, and we’re proud to be involved with it and are committed to its success.”
Employ Recruitment UK Ltd, based in Derbyshire, was formed in 2004 and has established itself as a leading provider of temporary HGV Class 1 and 2 drivers and their clients include Sainsbury’s and DHL.
