Driving Recruitment Agencies Directory

There are many employment opportunities available in the driving sector, and recruitment agencies are keen to find new drivers to fill spaces left behind by the substantial number of recent retirees. The sector is also expected to expand its workforce significantly in the coming years as environmental concerns result in the increasing importance of public transport.

Jobs in the field can range from long-distance freight distribution to inner-city courier services and public bus driving. The profession requires good concentration, patience, and the ability to stay awake while traversing long routes. Often the hours are unconventional and antisocial, and many careers in driving necessitate a certain degree of isolation. Salaries range from about £13K to £35K, depending on the type of vehicle and level of experience. Overall, the average annual income in the UK is around £20K. While wages tend to be slightly higher for London-based employees, those living in Northern Ireland earn substantially less than other regions in the UK.

New entrants to careers in the driving sector will need drivers' licences-usually specific to large vehicles -and certificates to comply with UK and EU regulatory requirements. The field, however, does not require any academic degrees, and is fairly accessible for most candidates. You can learn more from the Driving Standaards Agency.
