It may feel like Christmas is still a long way off, but with retail giants, such as Amazon, Debenhams, Boots, Argos and the Bodyshop, already advertising for temporary staff over the festive period, there’s no denying that Christmas is on its way. So if your business is affected by festive fluctuations, it’s time to ‘man-up’ and be prepared!
One industry that often feels the pressure during this busy time is the logistics industry and driver shortages hit the headlines every year as the industry struggles to service the sheer volume of Christmas deliveries travelling on our UK roads. As with the retail industry, logistics firms need to prepare for Christmas and temporary drivers and warehouse staff will be in high demand.
Will Smith, Managing Director at Savanna Driver Recruitment, said: “December is always a busy time for us, our clients are under pressure to meet increased volumes and they need experienced and reliable drivers, often at a moment’s notice. Our job is to relieve that pressure. We have a bank of approved and fully qualified drivers, including Class 1 and Class 2 LGV (HGV) drivers and drivers experienced in palletised freight and multi-drop deliveries.
We take the headache out of recruiting temporary logistics staff during peak seasons. Our thorough driver/job matching process ensures we supply a driver who not only has the correct qualifications, but also the relevant experience to carry out the job professionally and efficiently.”
From our head office in Uxbridge, Savanna Driver Recruitment specialise in providing temporary and permanent drivers and warehouse staff to logistics businesses operating in London and the surrounding areas, including temporary Class 1 LGV (HGV) drivers for hire in Greenford, temporary Class 2 LGV (HGV) drivers available in Croydon and 7.5T drivers for hire in Slough.
There are many benefits of using temporary staff (see our blog on the benefits of using temporary drivers), including cost savings, increased flexibility and the ability to fulfil last minute requirements.
