New Driver Recruitment

As the UK’s first and only agency focused wholly on addressing the challenges of Newly Qualified Driver recruitment, we are passionate about getting new drivers into rewarding employment quickly.

Right now, the UK has over 50,000 unfilled driving roles, so the skills of every qualified driver are in high demand. We have unrivalled access to the largest database of newly qualified and almost qualified drivers, so we’re uniquely positioned to connect employers with skilled people.

Let us help you to make the right connection.

A direct road to employment

We specialise in helping new drivers who are just starting out. So, we like to partner with organisations who feel as passionate about employing newly qualified drivers (NQDs) as we do. But that’s just the beginning.

New drivers gain experience, first jobs become second jobs, and so the wheels keep turning. That’s why we provide recruitment support and ongoing advice for the duration. HGV driving is a career for life and we’re in it for the long-haul, just like you.
