Expect Recruit Local Drivers

Expect Distribution hosted its third Driver Recruitment Open Day recently at our head office site in Bradford, adjacent to the M606.

This was a great opportunity for local drivers in the West Yorkshire area to discuss job opportunities, meet some of the team and have an informal introduction to the company, whilst enjoying a free breakfast sandwich.

We opened our doors at 8am and welcomed 22 drivers from the local area. On arrival the drivers participated in a meet and greet session, where they were introduced to some key members of the team, before watching a presentation.

This gave potential employees an insight into working for Expect as well as learning about the history of the business that has now been trading for 27 years. This was followed by a tour of the site and inspecting some of the 92 vehicles on our fleet.

After the tour, the visitors were given the opportunity to spend time with existing Expect drivers and ask any questions, before completing application forms for vacancies.

Expect Distribution’s Transport Manager, Nick Craddock, commented “The day was a huge success for Expect with 18 drivers completing application forms. To press we have employed 5 full time drivers, 2 driving assessment bookings and further interest from parties who were not available on the day. I would like to personally thank all the staff at Expect who got involved and helped organise the event. We will be scheduling more Driver Recruitment Open Days in the future.”
