Delivery company announces recruitment drive in Crawley


A delivery company has announced a new recruitment drive in the Crawley area.

Parcel delivery company DPD has confirmed it is on the look-out for 10 new drivers to join its rapidly expanding owner-driver franchise programme at its Fleming Way depot in Crawley,

The new positions will give people the opportunity to be their own boss and become part of the fastest growing major parcel delivery company in the UK, a spokesman said.

The recruitment drive is part of the company’s ongoing expansion that has created more than 4,000 new jobs across the UK in the last five years.

DPD offers a range of franchise agreements to appeal to experienced self-employed owner-drivers and also provides a low-cost entry option for those new to self-employment. All owner-drivers receive full training and are equipped with state-of-the-art technology, helping them to deliver an award winning customer experience.

In 2015, the company won the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the Innovation category for its unique one hour delivery slot service Predict. Predict notifies customers of their one hour delivery slot in advance so that they don’t have to wait in all day for a parcel.

Earlier this year, DPD was also ranked 22nd in The Sunday Times ‘Best Big Companies to Work For’ list.

Dwain McDonald, DPD’s CEO, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity to be part of the nation’s favourite parcel delivery company and effectively run your own business.

“We are looking for people who are passionate about delivering a great customer service and being their own boss.

“We are expanding our network and our capacity nationwide to meet the continuing demand from our retail and other business customers. That means more opportunities for drivers in our Crawley depot, which is growing rapidly.

“We have invested in our technology, our people and our infrastructure consistently for a number of years now, so our drivers have the very best tools for the job and the level of support you’d expect from a successful and award winning company.”
