Yorkshire was England's largest county prior to its division into the counties of West, North, and the East Riding of Yorkshire in 1974. At this point, North Yorkshire took the crown of the largest county in the country. The Driving Industry is relatively strong in Yorkshire, and it is home to a significant number of employers and recruitment agencies which specialise in this sector.
Whether you are looking for a permanent, temporary, or contract job - or are hiring for a role including HGV, Courier, or Coach Driver, this page is a fast way to find a recruitment agency who will be able to help.
Although the Driving Industry is spread right across the Yorkshire area, a number of settlements stood out for providing this kind of employment in the 2011 Census - reporting Transport and Storage sectors much higher than the average for England and Wales that year. Amongst these were Doncaster (2% larger), Wakefield (1.1% larger), Bradford (0.5% larger), Hull, and Rotherham (both 0.4% larger).
Many transport companies recruit within Yorkshire, but some of the larger operations with bases in the area include IKEA, Poundstretcher, Next, Morrisons, ASDA, and Spectrum for Arcadia Group. Other opportunities for candidates within the Driving industries include roles in public transport such as Bus Driver, or more specialist jobs such as Limousine Driver. Vacancies for these roles tend to be more concentrated in built-up areas such as Leeds or Sheffield.
