Working Time Directive
Important Note - At Driver Line, we adhere strictly to the working time directive. None of our staff average above 48 hours per week work over the 26 week (half year) monitoring period.
At Driver Line, we cater for all individuals holding a full drivers licence recognised under UK law aged between 21 and 70 years that are seeking either full time or casual work.
Our friendly and very supportive company ethos that is breaking the mould of traditional agencies with regard to care of staff is also linked to the reliability level afforded to our customers.
Driver Line deliberately doesn't run a list of vacancies on jobs boards or at the job centre as we don't believe it is proper to simply trawl for new registrants . Our employees are often taken on full time by our customers when they have shown their worth and a suitable vacancy arises. In other words, we will always look to fill permanent jobs firstly from within; with known entities to us and our customers.
Pay Guarantee Positions - 2020
Driver Line has made available fixed term pay guarantee contract positions for HGV qualified and experienced drivers since 2005. These contracts span any period from May until November and exceptional individuals have often gone on to join our full time staff driver team.
