About Barr Personnel

Your specialist driving recruitment agency

Barr Personnel’s story started in 2013 when Ipswich-based entrepreneur Barry Griffiths began helping drivers identify the best jobs in East Anglia.

Before starting Barr, Barry worked in numerous roles with recruitment agencies in the UK and developed the experience and knowledge that proved foundational to the creation of his own agency.

Central to the company’s approach is a commitment to people and the understanding that every person and business is unique. This is something that helps us stand out from the other driving recruitment agencies in the UK. We go the extra mile to ensure that all of our candidates and the companies that we work with are happy with our service.

Our consultants are also proud to support several charities and worthy causes in East Anglia, including Mind, Macmillan, and Bleed Control Kit, among others.

We’re proud to be an independent business within the East Anglian community and are thrilled to contribute to fundraisers and events throughout the year.

Barry and the team also made headlines throughout the Covid-19 pandemic by supporting the NHS and arranging logistics for the delivery of PPE and other crucial, life-saving equipment. Barry even re-sprayed his car to show his support for our key workers!

Our recent ten-year anniversary was picked up by the East Anglian Daily Times, our local paper.

If you decide to work with Barr Personnel as a candidate – please call us on 01473 56 56 77 – we promise to do everything we can to help you find the temporary or full-time driving position that you’re looking for.

And if you’re a business looking for a long-established and trusted driving recruitment agency in East Anglia, we promise to bring you skilled and experienced candidates to fill your current positions.

But don’t just take our word for it. We’ve made lots of drivers such as Andy happy over the years. Here’s what he had to say:

“Being a new driver, I knew I would be limited to certain jobs, but Barry and the team at Barr went above and beyond what I expected. Wages were paid without question; both were honest, professional and true to their word. Barr Personnel is certainly a company I would work for without hesitation.”

We also help individual drivers locate temporary and permanent roles within companies throughout the UK and constantly update our job listings to reflect new opportunities.

Dominic is one of the thousands of drivers who we have helped secure work in recent times, and he shares his experiences of working with Barr Personnel below:

“I can’t thank Barry and the team at Barr enough. I was with them briefly, and they secured me a driving job in a company. They ensured I was happy with the company, and as a recruitment team, they listened and delivered what they said they would. I personally recommend them to anybody – they are awesome.”
