Pertemps prepare for Christmas driver demand | Pertemps

Every Christmas the demand for qualified drivers intensifies as the festive rush ensues. Companies risk deliveries being delayed at a vital point in the logistics calendar if they don’t find drivers fast. It’s common knowledge in the industry that the lack of LGV drivers is a big issue; however, this year Pertemps are one step ahead. Partnering with Royal Mail we have created some unmissable opportunities for drivers looking for work in the run-up to Christmas.   

If you’re a professional driver, you’ll know that the festive period is the busiest time of the year. The majority of businesses double their staff intake as Christmas approaches – including Royal Mail. This is a hectic time for them as cards, presents and other deliveries need to be transported around the country, which requires extra staff.
