Meet the Drivers: David Dunsmuir

Our Meet the Drivers feature is an opportunity for us to learn about the professional life of the HGV drivers we work with.

In this edition, we’re going to be looking into David Dunsmuir’s experience as a Class 1 HGV driver. David joined the Bluestones Supply Chain team, at our Glasgow office, at the beginning of 2021. To learn more about David’s role and his experience working with the Bluestones Supply Chain Team, read on.

How long have you worked with Bluestones Supply Chain?

14 months.

How did you find out about Bluestones Supply Chain?

 I wanted to apply for a job with AW Jenkinson and another driver told me that Bluestones Supply Chain was one of the agencies they used, so I applied via Bluestones.

What do you enjoy most about working for Bluestones Supply Chain?

I’m an ad-hoc driver, but there are always shifts available and I’ve never had a shift cancelled. The communication is always clear, and my wages are always spot on and arrive in my bank the following week.

What do you do in a typical working day?  

I’m an HGV Class 1 driver, so I have to complete daily vehicle checks. In addition to driving, I must plan the routes I will take, with consideration for the tachograph rules regarding how many hours I am allowed to drive. I also load and unload my vehicle and carry out safety and security checks.

Describe your experience of working for Bluestones Supply Chain.

When I started, I had a great relationship working with Carolann, that has only continued with Tracey at the helm. She’s a pleasure to work with and keeps everything running smoothly.

Would you recommend Bluestones Supply Chain to other drivers? If so, why?

Yes, I would recommend Bluestones Supply Chain. They keep everything simple, and they’re easy to communicate with. They’re always friendly and helpful, and as long as you’re willing to do the work there will always be shifts available.
