Pure Staff have a specialised driving division that recruits and supplies all types of drivers to the West Midlands and in particular in Birmingham, Bilston and Worcester. Pure Staff can supply the following types of drivers for the listed areas:
- Multi drop drivers
- Van drivers
- Courier drivers
- ADR drivers
- 7.5 tonne drivers
- HGV class 1 drivers
- HGV class 2 drivers
Interviewing and pre-screening are important within any recruitment sector yet the driving sector demands a more in-depth policy to ensure safety. This is why Pure Staff’s driving division operates separate to any other division and it’s consultants only specialise within this sector. The recruitment, management and screening process within Pure Staff’s driving division are focused on compliance and safety to ensure the drivers safety and the safety of others.
Pure Staff Ltd has appointed a JAUPT Approved training provider to ensure all drivers supplied, comply with the new legislation. Pure Staff’s periodic training is delivered through courses that the driver attends during the five-year period for which their current Driver CPC is valid.
Drivers Negligence Insurance
Although Pure Staff’s recruitment process within the driving division is stringent, we also offer clients a superb driver’s negligence insurance policy to give that extra peace of mind.
