Dedicated To Drivers

Unlike other recruitment agencies, we focus solely on driver recruitment. We have over 30 years of industry experience in driver recruitment services and developed a refreshingly new approach. 

We care deeply about our drivers and want them to have a happy, fulfilling work life. 

Our drivers are highly skilled and professional, and we will match them with a company they are excited to be an ambassador for. Whether you want to book a driver for a day, during peak times for your business, or you are offering a permanent contract, we will find the right fit for you. 

We will work as closely with you as we do with our drivers.

How To Book Drivers

Every client will have a dedicated consultant who can best understand your company’s needs. We operate with two core values in mind: honesty and integrity. We won’t just help you find drivers to hire but find the perfect driver to accommodate the size and demands of your business. Our pool of drivers includes van drivers and Heavy Goods drivers (HGVs) for this exact reason.

Flexible and Passionate

As a driver recruitment agency, we offer 24-hour coverage 365 days a year. This allows us to be a flexible, responsive and communicative recruitment solution. Whether you want to book a driver for a day to cover holiday or sickess or block book to cover busy periods such as Christmas, the principle is the same. We can also help you find a full-time driver with a TEMP to PERM contract. So no matter the type of vacancy you have, we can find the perfect driver to fill your needs.

Our Standards

All of our drivers are fully compliant, reference-checked, and eager to provide a professional and efficient delivery service on your behalf. Our drivers are also subject to license checks every 3 months and trained to the highest standard. The reason we offer bespoke driver recruitment is so that you get the best driver for the job. This way of hiring has been an instant hit with transport managers like you, and we intend to continue making your life as easy as possible.

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
