Q&A with Holly

Q. What’s The Best Thing About Your Job?

Holly: “I love the variety and the fact that every day is different, dealing with different clients and contractors every day. More than that, I love the people aspect. I work so closely with our contractors and clients, so  get to know them really, really well and I’m able to build great working relationships over a long period of time. A lot of our driving contractors have been with Ten Live for years, so we know their background and lifestyle well. Ten Live appreciates and values its drivers and their loyalty. I know exactly what type of work our drivers are looking for and will always go out of my way to match the type of shifts they’re looking for with the work we have available.”

“I have worked with Ten Live from September and love working with them they have a great bunch of staff and are very accommodating as I need to work round my kids…”
“Great agency always try to accommodate your working preference and always do their best to keep you going, great bunch of girls in office, way better agency than most out there been with them on and off for around 8ish years and happy to stay with them..”   Ten Live Driving Contractors 2019

Q. What Are The Challenges?

Holly:” Ever since I started working in driving recruitment there have always been skills shortages in the sector.  We’re having to compete all the time with other agencies for drivers. But if you work for a well-respected driving recruitment agency like Ten Live, then recruiting and keeping drivers is so much easier.  That’s one of the reasons I joined Ten Live as they do have such a great reputation. Ten  Live genuinely does look after its drivers and clients well. We always manage to attract enough drivers and the right kind of driving contractors for our clients.  Our drivers are reliable, skilled, quality staff  – so many of our driving contractors are in regular work as they’re requested time and again by the same client”.

“We’ve been working continuously with Ten Live for years now to recruit driving, warehouse and operational staff. They’re a key partner for managing our requirements for  peak challenges in both summer and in the lead up to Christmas recruiting. We’ve always been really impressed with the calibre and reliability of candidates put forward . That’s why we’ve used them time after time.  Highly recommend.” General Manager, UK & Europe, Global Transport and Logistics Leader

Q. Sum up your job in one word!

Holly: “Banter! I’m on the phone a lot to our drivers and clients, so get to know them pretty well. It’s a tough job sometimes balancing call-offs, changes to shifts etc., so having a bit of a chat and a laugh makes the job a whole lot easier for everyone!”
