Our Driving Recruitment Division
Our dedicated Driving Division provides the complete transport recruitment solution from single shift, ad-hoc assignments to the most complex of Master Vendor Agreements.
Mercury's uniquely flexible approach also enables our transport recruitment services to be tailored to the business requirements of each client and the best possible service delivered for the lowest cost.
Professional drivers, whatever the vehicle
Unlike less experienced agencies, the consultants working with our Driving Division specialise in transport recruitment and logistics. Their understanding of each sector is unparalleled, allowing us to source experienced, qualified drivers for a wide range of vehicles including:
- LGV C+E
- LGV C
- LGV C1
- Home Delivery
In addition, Mercury drivers are trained to DSA standards and spend a day with our professional driving assessors before commencing work. For peace of mind, we carry out DVLA checks upon application and at three month intervals, check references and eligibility to work within the UK and subject drivers to stringent aptitude and tachograph tests.
Personal security passes, uniforms, safety footwear and hi-viz vests meanwhile allow Mercury drivers to portray a highly professional image whenever they visit our client's customers.
An unrivalled service, 24 hours a day
The dynamics of the industry mean that transport vacancies often need to be filled at very short notice. We understand this and ensure that our recruitment specialists can be contacted by telephone 24 hours a day to respond to the most urgent of requests.
Furthermore, Mercury drivers adhere strictly to the latest legal requirements when working for our clients. Their tachograph charts are returned directly to us and are entered into a computerised tracking system to closely monitor working hours.
