The UK’s leading logistics recruitment specialists, right on your doorstep
At Driver Hire Kingston, we supply local customers in Kingston upon Thames with skilled drivers and logistics staff for their assignments. We’re one of 100+ franchises of the UK’s leading logistics recruitment company, Driver Hire, and we pride ourselves on the extensive knowledge and experience this allows us to bring to the Kingston area.
All our drivers are fully qualified
You can be confident in the quality of our drivers. Before we take them on, every driver is assessed to ensure that their character and work ethic will meet our customers’ expectations. As well as this, they must complete a competency test – for both driving and customer service – and have their licence and motoring history checked by the DVLA.
After that, we take them through extensive training for their chosen category of driving. Every driver has the opportunity to enhance their qualification with further training, should they wish. As a minimum, all drivers are accredited for tachograph usage, fuel-efficient driving, health and safety, and dealing with on-road occurrences; this is all part of their Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (DCPC).
Specialists for more than 30 years
Established in Bradford over 30 years ago, Driver Hire now supplies customers all over the UK, and even some of Australia. The expertise of our dedicated specialists has helped us become the UK’s leading logistics recruitment company. We are winners of BFA (British Franchise Association) awards, and REC (Recruitment and Employment Confederation) ‘Agency Driver of the Year’.
Our industry research and experience is market-leading. Every Driver Hire franchise benefits from the company’s latest studies into European legislation, including Working Time Regulations, HMRC compliance, and temporary or agency staff regulations. This helps us ensure that every customer or driver that works with us receives only the highest quality of service – whatever their needs.
A local service tailored to your needs
Managing a small area means that we’re completely in tune with the needs and demands of local recruiters – because of this, we can respond to them quickly and helpfully.
In fact, we know our local industry inside out. The owner of the Kingston franchise, David Baker, is just about to enter his second five-year term with Driver Hire, so he knows just about everything there is to know about what our customers want.
Whether it’s a short-notice, temporary or permanent position you’re looking to fill, we have qualified drivers on hand for all types of commercial vehicle, including cars, vans, LGVs and PSVs. We can provide staff for other logistics roles, too. Whatever your requirements, we’ll use our extensive network of experienced drivers to find you the right person for the job, every time.
