From an “obstacle course” to a “walk in the park” – TempaGoGo takes the pain away from temporary driving recruitment

You have much better things to do than the “obstacle course” of manually finding driving recruitment agencies…

Finding good driving recruitment agencies can be an obstacle course - TempaGoGo is here to help.


First, figure out how to find recruitment agencies​…

Which way do you go ? The Yellow Pages? Google?

A number of recruitment agencies listed on the Yellow Pages are not in business anymore or don’t meet your search criteria – e.g., type “driving recruitment agency in London” and some agencies would only cater for hospitality or education roles. 

When you click on Google looking for a “driving recruitment agency in Hounslow”, you can end up with agencies only providing temporary candidates in Essex or Kent – not exactly what you were looking for. 

… then, ensure that the recruitment agencies listed meet your needs…

Some driving recruitment agencies are highly specialised – for example, only providing HGV drivers or commercial drivers (e.g., van drivers) in certain specific locations (e.g., Heathrow only), while other cover the entirety of the UK and focus on Transport and Logistics roles as a whole.

… next, check they’re any good…

That can be tricky – a large number of recruitment agencies describe themselves on their website as “the leading recruitment agency”, “one of the best recruitment agencies in the UK” – which ones are actually really good?

… after that, phone the ones that are most relevant to your needs and describe the vacancy you need to fill.​…

This might be difficult (and it takes so much of your time!) – agencies might not be open when you need them to (have you ever tried to contact them before 08:00 or after 17:00, or on the weekends?). And what’s the point of describing the same job brief 3 or 5 times!

… and finally (!), work with recruitment agencies who have available candidates?

This is really hard in the Transport and Logistics industry in the UK at the moment! Temporary Blue Collar candidates are in highest demand. 1/3 of transport and logistics companies in the UK feel that they don’t have enough skilled workers to ensure their business runs smoothly according to the 2018 FTA Logistics Industry survey.

With TempaGoGo, recruiting your temporary staff becomes a “walk in the park”!
