Case Studies

Increase of Driver Personnel at Exeter Calor Centre.

Requirement

Draglink Ltd were instructed by Exeter Calor Centre to recruit three new drivers with ADR licenses for their operation at their Grace Road South site on Marsh Barton Industrial Estate, Exeter.

This followed Calor Gas deciding to close their depots in Barnstaple and Taunton and increasing their business out of Exeter.

Solution

The three drivers were recruited solely for Calor Gas with a view to becoming employed by the company.

Result

The interview process was carried out whilst the drivers were working for Draglink and their transfer to Calor Gas was completed after successful interviews.

Draglink were happy to assist Calor Gas as it helps to form a stronger business relationship and assures them that we have their best interests in mind at all times.


Coastal Waste Ltd, Exeter.

Requirement

Draglink were asked to supply two LGV Class C drivers for a skip operation running from Marsh Barton in Exeter. This was with a view to a permanent position within the company.

Solution

Draglink supplied two skilled drivers as requested, one of which was not suited to the Coastal Waste operation. Without fuss, Mr Woodward then arranged to replace this driver with a more suitable one.

Result

The two drivers were placed through Draglink for an agreed period of six weeks before Coastal Waste employed them direct. Interviews were carried out during the six weeks so this did not delay the process.
