Launched in 2015, Connect Driver Solutions has quickly progressed to become a leading name in the transport sector. Here, Director Stuart Steven tells us just what sets us miles ahead of the competition.
What can new drivers expect when they apply through Connect Drivers Solutions?
When a driver comes on board we’re very honest; we understand the sector, and I have worked in transport for 22 years. We do try and ensure drivers are placed in the correct job for them with a full understanding of the role and what is expected of them.
I’m proud of the staff that work for us and the reputation that we have gained within the market. The staff that have worked for us are some of the most knowledgeable in the market. They are experienced within the industry and have the most up to date training.
And, in terms of recruitment for drivers, it is very busy at the moment!
We always ensure you are matched to a company that can provide you with more experience. We talk you through every step of the recruitment process, making sure you understand what is expected from you whilst in the role.
Recruitment is changing across all sectors, what changes have you seen?
The way we have adapted is by getting accustomed to working remotely; all sectors are in the same position. We’ve got more people moving to our services online rather than coming through the door, and we’re moving to online forms, and adapting to Zoom video calls for interviews.
We are also seeing more demand for couriers compared to the other end of the scale, which focuses on class one drivers.
For the last six months, the courier work has been busy because the landscape of consumers is changing from footfall to shopping online.
Connect Driver Solutions has recently launched a new app, what can people expect from the app?
The Connect Drivers Solutions app is very exciting. Anyone looking for a driver role can see what we have live, you can get job alerts directly to your phone, and you can update your own availability versus the traditional method. You will be in control of your own availability and hours. Plus, at the moment there’s a chance to win a £100 Amazon voucher!
Finally, what makes Connect Drivers Solutions stand out from the crowd?
We do what it says on the tin: We bring driving solutions to your business needs.
