National Lorry Week 2021 – what it means to us.

October 20th, 2021

What is National Lorry Week?

Every year, the Road Haulage Association celebrates the vital role of transport – the UK’s fifth-largest industry. This year the RHA will have run the event for the 7th time from 25 to 31 October 2021. There have been lots of activities ahead of the event – you can find all the details on RHA’s social media channels.

This event makes a great opportunity to celebrate the vital role of the haulage industry in our everyday lives. It is also a fantastic way to promote employment within the industry, as 98% of our essential consumer goods are transported by road.

What’s the focus this year?

This year, National Lorry Week will focus on career opportunities within the logistics sector and encouraging young people and anyone who may be considering a new challenge to think about joining the next generation of drivers, managers and technicians. The RHA is also asking people to show their appreciation for the haulage sector.

The pandemic has definitely highlighted the importance of the transport industry, and its workers. There has been a big jump in job opportunities, including huge demand for HGV and delivery drivers.

What is our role in the industry?

NN1 Personnel is a specialist in driver recruitment and supply. We provide professional and experienced HGV drivers to our clients in Northamptonshire. We entered the industry in 2015. After working in transport for several years where we had been let down by temporary staff recruitment agencies we thought there must be a better way. So, we set about creating a company that believes in transparency and building a long-lasting, successful relationship with our clients and the staff we supply.

We take big pride in supporting the transport industry. Supplying HGV drivers to our clients throughout Northamptonshire is a big task and responsibility so we have high expectations when it comes to our drivers. We treat them with respect and support them. In return, we get their commitment and loyalty. We believe trust and honesty are important in recruitment and are key to a successful business. relationship.

What does #NLW mean to us?

The national Lorry Week is a great chance to shout out to the industry heroes and their hard work. NN1 Personnel has been showing support to HGV drivers since the beginning of the NN1 Personnel and we have been encouraging them to take the new path in their careers in our blogs and social media posts. Showing why Northamptonshire is a great place for job opportunities in transport, and promoting a healthy lifestyle has also been on our agenda.

To show the support for the industry and its heroes we have launched a Referral Scheme for our drivers. . We are always on the lookout for quality drivers. We hope that the referral scheme will encourage some more talent into the industry. Additionally, we run a ‘Driver of the month’ incentive for our drivers which is a great way to show them our appreciation.

There are a variety of job opportunities available on our website for Class 1 and Class 2 drivers throughout Northamptonshire. Feel free to check them out here.
