Dixons Carphone launches nationwide campaign to recruit, retain and retrain 7.5t drivers

Dixons Carphone has launched a nationwide campaign to recruit, retain and retrain 7.5t drivers in a bid to combat the sector-wide shortage and remain competitive.

The owner of Currys PC World and Carphone Warehouse will offer a sign-on bonus of £1,500 to new 7.5t drivers and  a £1,500 retention bonus to existing drivers. It will also offer the sign-on bonus to staff working elsewhere in the business who choose to retrain as a driver. In addition, staff who refer a friend for a driver vacancy will be given a £1,000 reward.

Lindsay Haselhurst, chief supply chain officer at Dixons Carphone, said: “Our drivers are a vital part of our operation – our ambassadors on the road who perform the mammoth task of replenishing, delivering and installing hundreds of thousands of products every week, serving our stores as well as our customers in their homes.

“The pandemic has reinforced the important role vital technology plays in everyone’s lives today, so we’re looking for new drivers to join our fantastic team of capable and committed colleagues to help us continue to deliver on our vision of helping everyone enjoy amazing technology.”

This month, Dixons Carphone has also launched a scheme whereby anyone over the age of 21 who has held their UK Category B driving licence for more than a year will have the cost of their training and tests met by the company.
