What to look for when recruiting a temp forklift driver

Forklift truck drivers will be a core part of a logistics team, and may often have to work under high pressure to help keep an operation running smoothly. Therefore when looking to hire, it will be important not only to look at their core technical skills, but also whether they will be able to fit in and work effectively with your team.

Firstly core skills: you’ll be looking for some one who is good at organising, able to deal with paperwork and follow schedules, accurate and has an eye for safety.

Second, but just as important is the ability to work under pressure, and maintain a can-do attitude, especially when working with a larger team.

Next vehicle familiarity: there are many different types of forklift trucks: industrial reach, counterbalance, rough terrain, side loaders, telescopic hander and pedestrian operated pallet trucks. Make sure the recruitment agency knows what type of machinery the driver will need to be familiar with. Note, there is no legal requirement for the driver to have a license, unless you need them to take the forklift onto a public highway, but there are specific training courses drivers can take - which will make them more attractive to employers, and give the employer greater comfort.

Finally consider the working environment: warehouse, factory, farm-yard, construction site - it’s better to have someone who has had experience in similar conditions to those they will work in with you.

There are recruitment agencies who specialise in warehouse and logistic roles. They will make sure the drivers have the correct licences, a CSCS card and the right to work in the UK. Forklift drivers are in high demand, so be prepared to work with a few agencies to fill your vacancies, and understand that you may need to pay a little more to secure the right people for your job.

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

  • Driving a forklift truck
  • Stock allocation
  • Stock replenishment
  • Loading and unloading
  • Order picking
  • Other general warehouse duties

Typically, recruitment agencies will charge between £11.69 and £14.64 per hour for forklift 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.
