A Dorset recruitment company is helping to keep the wheels of commerce moving with its new specialist transport division. City Centre Recruitment, with offices in Yeovil, Weymouth, Bournemouth and Southampton has seen the demand for driving placements continue to rise, filling over five hundred driving vacancies over the last two years.
Keeping a cool head! Tina Hawkins from City Centre Recruitment in Yeovil with Peter Hancock from Hunts in Sherborne.
The company has recently been working with Sherborne based frozen food specialists Hunts Foodservices, helping them to cope with a seasonal rush.
Peter Hancock, Hunts transport manager said, "As well as being leading suppliers of frozen foods and produce, we are probably the biggest distributor of ice creams in the region. Lately with the great summer weather, we have needed to keep the deliveries going almost 24/7 to keep up with demand. We have a fleet of more than sixty vehicles to keep on the road and City Centre Recruitment sourced us three new drivers at fairly short notice which was brilliant."
Tina Hawkins is a specialist driving consultant at City Centre Recruitment, operating out of their Weymouth office. Tina added, "I've worked in transport management myself and hold a Class 1 licence. I know how important it is to have access to qualified driving personnel when you need them to keep the business operating efficiently. I am delighted we could be of assistance to Hunts and help them during their busy period."
Tina is also keen to hear from those with driving experience who are looking for work, saying "We place drivers in all sorts of roles, from van deliveries to HGV driving. Sometimes they are temporary or short term, other jobs are permanent.
We even recruited drivers at the start of the season for the Weymouth and Bournemouth coastal land trains, so there's lots of variety in driving jobs!"
