At Route4 Driver Recruitment, we have various driving vacancies for all classes of drivers with all types of experience behind them. There are roles for temporary drivers, which could be for a day or a temporary contract that lasts a few months during peak times. There are also opportunities for permanent driver recruitment to give you the stability of full time employment. This way of recruitment allows us to be as flexible as you are, and you can use your portfolio of work to build relationships with the companies you work with now and in the future.

We are incredibly proud of our 85% driver retention rates. We have achieved this by making sure the right drivers are in the right placements.

We promote regulated breaks and will always be available to talk about your role and what you need for a good work-life balance whenever you need us.

Route4 Driver Recruitment is based in the Midlands. We have vacancies in Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire, South Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. We hold local interviews for people wanting to join our driver recruitment agency.

What We Expect

For our Drivers, we expect you to be honest, customer focused and flexible.  In return, we will match you to the right job to give you the work-life balance you desire. We work with our clients, to ensure you are treated as part of the team and not ‘just a driver’ (or just an agency driver).

Don't just take our word for it

"I have known Mike Harris, the MD of Route4 Driver Recruitment in various capacities for the last 15 years. When he founded Route4 Driver Recruitment I had no hesitation in using him to supply relief drivers. He has helped me recruit over 70 drivers for the Newark distribution centre of a large electrical business.  He provides knowledge, experience and the customer service is second to none. He is totally reliable, and I know that I can call him anytime 24/7, 365 days a year. No matter what the time of day, Route4 Driver Recruitment are responsive and proactive. Above all, they send me the right driver for the job – they don’t just put a bum on a seat – they really do offer a 24 hour temporary driver solution."

National Transport Operations Manager, Major Global Transport Company

"The Prolog fleet of vans and HGV lorries has doubled in size over the last two years from 10 to 20 vehicles. We have found that the daily flexibility of sourcing temporary drivers through Route4 Driver Recruitment has enabled us to operate cost effectively and efficiently with only five drivers employed on a permanent basis.  Route4 Driver Recruitment made time to understand how our business operates and also support me by organising and planning delivery routes and schedules. They are genuinely available 24/7, 365days a year – I know, because I’ve called them at all hours and have never yet been let down. They always make sure there is a relief driver available to us and have provided us with the ability to call in relief drivers even as late as 8pm."

Brian Thompson, Transport Manager, Prolog

"We employ three full time drivers and when they are absent through holidays or sickness, I know I can rely on Route4 Driver Recruitment to provide me with a relief driver at short notice. Although ours is not a regular contract, and can be quite adhoc and urgent, Route4 Driver Recruitment have shown that they are capable of supporting smaller logistics operations like ours that on occasion will still have the need for an agency driver. They have never failed to provide a friendly and responsive service whatever time of day or night I have called them."

Brian Trigg, Director, Bridgeshire Packaging Limited

"The delivery of bagged aggregate requires the driver to be trained and inducted to a certain standard. Our business is also very seasonal. Using Route4 Driver Recruitment at our Castle Donington, Alrewas, and Husbands Bosworth sites has enabled us to flex our driver numbers according to workload and therefore operate more cost effectively and efficiently. Sourcing temporary drivers through Route4 Driver Recruitment means we have access to a pool of temporary drivers who whilst working for us receive training and gain an understanding of our operations and work culture. This allows us to cherry pick the best drivers when we have vacancies for a permanent driver, whilst still having access to a pool of drivers who are already familiar with the needs of our business."

John Skinner, Transport Manager, GRS Roadstone

"I started working for Route 4 Driver Recruitment 2014. Initially I worked for one of their clients based in Newark UK and I was given as many days of work as I requested. After a year, I was transferred to another client and have been content working for them continuously over the last two years.
Mike Harris is my contact at Route4 and I find that he always sticks up for me and tries his best to find me as much work as he can even, in the most difficult times of the year, when perhaps work is not so plentiful."

Joseph Constantin, Driver

"I worked with Route 4 Driver Recruitment for about 2 years and in this time I can honestly say that I had no issues with them at all. The Route4 Driver Recruitment team is the best team that I have worked with in the past 5 years of me being a HGV driver. They are very approachable and very flexible in terms of trying to place you with the right job depending on your circumstances."

Adrian Spoiala, Driver

"I have worked with Route 4 Driver Recruitment for just over a year now and I would like to say that I really appreciate working for them. From day one they have always listened to my personal circumstances and always tried to provide me with good quality jobs. Unlike some agencies out there, R4 always pay me on time and for that I am very grateful. I look forward to continuing my working relationship with Route4 Driver Recruitment and hope to be employed for many more years to come. "

Mark Foster, Driver

On time,
every time,
we won't let
you down.
