Driver Hire are the UK’s leading logistics recruiter who supply drivers to our various clients for holiday and sickness cover, short and long term contracts and recruit for permanent positions too. 94% of our current candidates say they are proud to work for Driver Hire and currently we are looking for a new LGV driver to join our growing team.


Due to the current climate, we are unable to offer a guarantee of hours and are looking for drivers who are flexible with the hours they work. We will strive to offer you full time hours but while we wait for many of our regular clients to begin booking drivers again it would be advantageous if you are happy to also work on Van assignments to allow us to keep you as busy as possible.


We are looking to speak to candidates that live in the Staplehurst, Tonbridge, Tunbridge Wells, Marden, Paddock Wood, Sevenoaks, Hastings or Edenbridge area.

If this sounds like something you would be interested in, please apply online or call and speak to us on 01732 770005.
