Company solves driver shortage by promoting from within

Jul 18, 2016
Northamptonshire-based Metro Removals’ driver Dean Walker has become the first employee to pass his Class 2 driver training with the company.

Dean, who was previously a 3.5-ton driver, will now move on to one of Metro’s 18-ton Scania rigids.

Director Lee Paris said, “I am so delighted with Dean’s progress. Since the introduction of DCPC, I have found it very hard to source qualified drivers, as many of those that are licensed to drive Class 2 vehicles just want to sit behind the wheel and have no desire to carry out the removals service. As a result I have looked to develop from within the company. Porters who have the desire to progress their careers with Metro Removals are given every opportunity to do so.”

Currently three more young employees are training for their Class 2 licences, with a further two youngsters looking to obtain their driving licences for 3.5-ton vans.
