We have created bespoke digital software to support safe practice 100% of the time with complete visibility of shift uptake, saving time and increasing efficiency. Meet DRS: Driver Recruitment Software.

We believe that software is the future of recruitment and Employ have been at the heart of developing recruitment management software specifically for our purpose: ‘Driver Recruitment Software’ (DRS). The software uses algorithms to fully manage Working Time Directives, EU Drivers’ Hours, Conduct Regulations, Agency Workers Regulations, IR35, and licence criteria with 100% accuracy to ensure we never place a non-compliant driver.

We also use DRS to manage your bookings, so we can provide you with the most efficient and comprehensive service possible, as well as visibility of shift fulfilment. By adding your bookings to the web-portal, we are able to select the best match to your needs via our pool of drivers, through software algorithms.

DRS can be used for recruitment in multiple industries, including transport, commercial and industrial, but we have outlined below some of the many software benefits when used in logistics recruitment.
