We are proud of our success in developing our own managers through the management development programme, but recognise the importance of achieving an appropriate balance between employing internal and external talent. Therefore we are keen to recruit high calibre managers from outside our organisation to complement the skills and experience of our existing teams.
The ability to manage safety critical operations effectively, whilst ensuring the highest levels of customer service, is key to HOYER'S success. Therefore we expect our managers to be clear on these priority areas and provide the appropriate leadership and direction to our teams of drivers and staff.
With so many factors to consider in the smooth running of any transport and logistics operation, HOYER relies on the intellect, experience, hard work and commitment of staff in all support functions to ensure we continuously uphold excellent standards of customer service. These areas include:
- Huddersfield Control Centre – our transport, planning and dispatch centre of excellence
- Fleet Support Services
- Human Resources
- Information Technology
These areas of our business help to support our operations to ensure that HOYER runs in a safe, effective and compliant way, making best use of the technology available to us.
We are always looking to recruit and develop committed people in our support functions who are enthusiastic about the industry and looking to make a difference.
We pride ourselves in our industry leading driver training, which we believe is a fundamental cornerstone in our quest to operate at the highest levels of safety and service.
We invest heavily in training for all drivers joining our company, even those who are experienced, because we are committed to ensuring that every driver consistently upholds our standards of safety so that we are able to meet our customers’ requirements in a safe, sure and efficient manner.
Our drivers are our ambassadors on the road, each day delivering vital products which keep the global industry moving. That’s an important job, so we make sure we invest in them and give them the tools to do it to the highest standards.
