About Us


Freeway Recruitment is a leading north England based independent recruitment company specialising in the Placement of temporary and permanent staff. Since our birth in 1989, where we started out as a specialist HGV driver supplier, we have evolved into a business whose brand is for known for it’s ability to find and place staff, day in day out, year on year, and through any market/economic condition. The company has seen considerable growth every year since owner and director Wayne Clark joined in 2008. This now includes the expansion and growth across the M62 corridor and into and throughout Lancashire in 2013.


Since that point Freeway have specifically placed ‘ consistent quality control’ and ‘never ending improvement’ at the forefront of our day to day operation. By focusing our efforts on working with a dedicated customer base rather than anyone and everyone, we are able to ‘properly’ manage and control front end recruitment. Accepting only candidates with the best skills, behaviours and attitudes, and therefore adding visible quality and depth to our labour pool.


Our focus towards quality over quantity means that our internal processes don't have to be sacrificed at the expense of being over stretched. The case for many recruiters nowadays is that they take too much business, stretching capacity, and then, when peak periods increase, quality levels inevitably fall! Many agencies knowingly break SLA agreements or internal compliance supplying inadequately skilled staff to customers when pressured. This results in raised on/off accidents, H&S breaches, staff not turning up leading to low or failed production or warehouse targets, missed distribution drops, poor customer services and lowered driver performance.


Above all else and underlying everything it is the unbeatable relationships we have with the staff we provide and the clients we support that sets us apart from our competition. It is by far the main reason we have been supplying the industry since 1989.
