About Premier Drivers

Premier Drivers, the driving division of Premier Placement Services, works in partnership with some of North Staffordshire and South Cheshire’s leading employers. From our offices in Newcastle-under-Lyme and Crewe, we supply around 100 drivers a day to large distribution centres, national hauliers and small independent companies.

Our team is comprised of recruitment managers with a deep understanding of the transport industry and what it takes to become a professional, competent driver. Transport managers and businesses tell us that when they pick up the phone and ask a question or they need to arrange emergency driving cover, it makes all the difference when dealing with a recruitment service which offers experience and specialist knowledge.

Because we recruit only the best people, whether they happen to be experienced in driving a van or HGV, we give a lot in return. Our philosophy is based on mutual respect and a supportive culture in which our drivers can expect great rates of pay, a range of benefits and flexible hours. We are also a JAUPT approved training centre and offer a number of courses designed to upskill drivers who are committed to pursuing a programme of continuous professional development.
