The team here at 24-7 Staffing are celebrating after gaining an accreditation for excellence for the fifth consecutive year.
We have once again been awarded Driver Agency Excellence, which we have held since the scheme was set up by the Freight Transport Association.
To be accredited, driver recruitment agencies are assessed against stringent FTA standards. A voluntary initiative, the scheme aims to recognise, encourage and promote good practice within the sector.
At the same time, we have gained our Gangmasters & Labour Abuse Authority (GLAA) licence, which endorses our good working practices in placing candidates in the fresh produce supply chain and horticulture industry.
What the FTA and GLAA accolades mean for 24-7 Staffing
We are really delighted that we meet the required standards with the FTA scheme and the GLAA.
The transport industry is heavily regulated, so to be a recruiter in this sector you have to really know what you’re doing. Driver recruitment has been one of the sectors we have worked in since we set up the business in 2004, so we have a vast depth of knowledge about transport and its strict governance, and to be accredited for a fifth time is very pleasing.
We are also pleased that, on the first time of applying, we were deemed to meet all the stringent standards needed to be awarded our GLAA licence , which now gives us more scope when placing candidates in the food and horticultural sector.
Our MD, Julian Thompson, was among those instrumental in help the FTA to set up the excellence scheme and currently chairs the DAE governance group. He is also a national and international CPC holder in transport management.
