Supporting our Community

Each year Driver Hire Grimsby & Scunthorpe choose a charity or cause to support and when Covid struck our choice for our annual community support was an easy one.  We knew that there would be a huge increase in mental health issues and many people who would not be able to pay for therapy and support. So, in April 2020 we set up a JustGiving Page to raise £10k to help and support those who needed therapy at no cost to themselves.  We approached Fortis Therapy, an award- winning organisation to extend their services to those who were not able to pay but could be paid for through our fundraising efforts.

The golf event took place in July 2021 and teams of Golfers enjoyed a highly competitive round of Golf at the Laceby Manor Golf Resort followed by a spendid evening meal.  Prizes were given for the winning teams and the Raffle Draw contained some fantastic donations from our generous sponsors.

We would like to thank all of our Golf Teams (including 4 from our reputable clients), Generous Sponsors, Laceby Manor and not forgetting Fortis Therapy for your involvement to make it such a successful day.

Our Goal of £10k was achieved above and beyond.

Smart Energy

We have taken steps to reduce our energy consumption, lowering our carbon emissions for our loved local community. As a business, we have invested in LED lights, which makes a huge difference to the environment, and this is just the start of our sustainable journey.
To help us invest in these energy-saving measures we had support from Smart Energy Greater Lincolnshire. Through this, we received a grant of £350 to enable us to make these fantastic changes.
The £9.2 million Smart Energy programme has been part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund. This is enabling small to medium businesses across the Greater Lincolnshire area to invest in energy-saving technology.

Frequently asked questions

What do I need to do to register with you?

You can set up job alerts by creating an account here. Alternatively if you prefer, you can give us a call or just pop in. Quality is at the heart of all we do so we take our candidate registration process very seriously. Before we can offer you work you will need to attend a face-to-face interview.

When you come in to see us, you will need to bring certain key information with you. You must provide your National Insurance number, bank details and another form of ID such as a passport or birth certificate. Where relevant you will need to provide proof of your right to work in the UK. For driving work we need to see your original driver’s licence (both parts if a photo card) and proof of any licence upgrades you hold.

We always take up references on every candidate so please also provide phone numbers of two work related referees.

What type of work can you offer me?

We can offer you a wide range of different jobs. As well as lots of driving work, across all licence categories, we are always recruiting for many non-driving roles. Whether you are looking for part time work, a contract role or a long term career, we can help. Check out our online jobs board, phone or call in to find out more.

How old do I have to be to work as a Driver Hire driver?

We welcome candidates of all ages. Please be aware that insurance requirements for certain roles mean that an age limit may apply to that particular role.

Are all your drivers fully compliant with relevant legislation?

Nothing is more important to Driver Hire than safety and full regulatory compliance. All Driver Hire drivers have to take a 150-point competency test before they are allowed to work for us and we provide ongoing updates on new rules and regulations as they are introduced. We also have bespoke IT systems in place to monitor the work our staff do for us.

You can be confident that any member of staff you take on from Driver Hire has been fully briefed on any relevant legislation.

Can you help me out at short notice?

Absolutely. Some people say it’s what we do best. As the UK’s leading specialist supplier of transport and logistics staff, we have an extensive database of high quality candidates ready to step in and help you out.

You can call us any time of the day or night, 365 days a year and speak to a real person on the other end of the line. We know the pressures you are likely to operate under, so will take down the details of the person you need and if we can’t tell you instantly who we have available, we will get back to you within 15 minutes with a definite answer either way.

Can you help with non-driving roles?

Yes. Driver Hire is about much more than driving. We can help you find the ideal candidate for just about any role connected with the transport and logistics industry. That includes drivers of course, but also warehouse staff, operations and back office roles, plant operatives, managerial staff and much more. Check out ‘Looking for Staff’ for more information.

Do you just provide temps?

No. Our experience in the industry and our extensive candidate database means we are ideally placed to help you find long-term contract staff and of course, permanent employees. Our permanent recruitment service operates on a no success no fee basis and is backed up by generous guarantees.
