At Driver Hire, we believe in supporting our people to make it a great place to work. We think it’s important to offer a range of rewards and benefits to help our colleagues to develop their careers, and give something back to each person.
Here is a list of our rewards and benefits, and some exciting reasons why to come work for us:
A generous holiday entitlement of 33 days per year including UK bank holidays (running from January to December).
We provide a healthcare cash plan to help you keep on top of your health and well-being, without having to worry about the cost implications.
As well as the standard cover for contributions towards optical and dental expenses that are available on most plans, our plan contributes towards the cost of:
- Emergency dental treatment
- 24/7 advice line and EAP
- Health assessments
- Expenses for hospital stays
In a majority of cases, the full amount of the treatment you receive will be covered by the plan.
Gym and fitness-related product discounts are also accessible through the service.
Training and development
We recognise that career progression is a vital part of professional growth. We’re committed to giving you the training you’ll need to do your job, and to develop your skills for the future.
We have invested in a number of training and development courses. We provide a mix of third party and in-house training to help you excel and develop your knowledge and skills in different areas of expertise.
Some of our courses to date include the following:
- Finance for Non-Financial Managers
- Presentation Masterclass
- MS Excel – Intermediate
- Conflict management
We are also building a Personal Development Library, with books that staff request for work-related topics purchased for them and then held centrally for all to use.
We know that work will be a big part of your daily life, but we want all our employees to have a good work/personal life balance. We have introduced an additional employee benefit this year, giving everyone in the company an extra day off for their birthday.
Also, we have flexible working hours to meet the needs of our employees and for some roles, the opportunity to work from home. Our commitment to ‘Giving Something Back’ is also helpful in this area.
We’re pleased to say that all employees of Driver Hire have the opportunity to earn an additional bonus – on a monthly or quarterly basis – on top of their salary once they pass their probationary period.
Your bonus will depend on your role. You may have a target sales bonus structure in place to help you increase your earnings on top of your base salary. For for non-sales related roles, you will be eligible to join our turnover bonus scheme.
Giving something back
As a successful business, we feel it’s important to give something back to the communities we live and work in. We regularly participate in charitable fundraising activities for a range of good causes, and operate two volunteering programmes.Both schemes allow staff to directly support good causes with their time, whilst still being paid.
Our established company scheme supports a range of projects, from decorating at gardening in community centres to an innovative careers partnership with Dixons City Academy in Bradford. Our new ‘Personal Volunteering’ scheme extends the same principle so that staff can choose to take an extra paid day off to support a good cause that really matters to them personally.
