What to look for when recruiting a temp delivery driver

4 million vans registered with the DVLA, 251,000 people identifying van driving as their main occupation in 2018… With vans accounting for a fifth of urban street traffic, delivery drivers, also called parcel delivery drivers or van drivers, seem to be everywhere - from the news to the street - hired by retailers, restaurants or parcel delivery companies (e.g., Yodel, Parcelforce, Hermes, TNT, DHL, DPD, Fedex and UPS, to name a few!).

Their role is to pick goods and parcels from depots and warehouses, often located in the outskirts of urban areas to offer speedy deliveries, and deliver them to customers.

If you’re looking to recruit a delivery driver, if the van they need to drive weighs more than 3.5 tonnes, you’ll need to ensure that the candidate is 18 years old at the minimum and have a valid CPC card (Driver Certificate of Competence).

If they drive your van for more than 4 hours a day, they’ll need to follow the “GB domestic rules on drivers hours”, which means that they can't drive for more than 10 hours a day and can't have more than 11 hours a day of duty time (which includes, if they’re not self-employed, the time they spend driving, resting, loading and performing some vehicle maintenance checks or administrative tasks).

If you need to hire a delivery driver temporarily through a recruitment agency, you’re generally expected to provide the van, however, some recruitment agencies are able to find self-employed van drivers who own their vans.

You probably have a good idea of what you need a delivery driver to do for you. But to make things easy, we give you a job description to start from and a suggested budget. Typically delivery drivers will perform the following duties:

  • Delivering parcels within timed delivery slots
  • Planning the most efficient route
  • Providing outstanding customer service
  • Maintaining timely communications by phone with the customer to keep them informed of issues or changes to their proposed delivery

Typically, recruitment agencies will charge between £11.69 and £14.64 per hour for delivery drivers. This includes what the candidate is paid, their National Insurance and holiday payments, as well as the agency margin. Your budget should take into account the experience of the secretary and their working location. For example, expect to pay more in London, where the Living Wage is £10.55 per hour.
