7.5.1 Drivers

Vehicle rental companies may offer their own driver as part of the contract negotiation. This is not recommended. Preferably, CARE should recruit drivers directly through normal recruitment processes. This will ensure that:

  • the drivers selected are appropriately skilled and their abilities are assessed through testing
  • the drivers selected are very familiar with the areas of operation
  • they are screened (through the Bridger World Tracker software)
  • the drivers will become employees of CARE, and are bound by CARE’s HR policies and procedures, including safety and security requirements.
