About Us


Will Barnes Limited is a family run recruitment agency that offers a bespoke recruitment service where we put our clients and employees needs first. We have over 20 years experience in HGV driving, recruitment and administration and are constantly improving to deliver the best service possible for our clients.

Director, William Barnes, has been driving HGV vehicles for over 20 years and previously owned a very successful haulage company. In 2018, after dealing with many recruitment agencies, William decided he could offer a much better service and opened Will Barnes Ltd recruitment agency with his partner Serena Howse.

The business has grown significantly and now offers

  • CPC training courses (currently online due to Covid-19)
  • Fire Marshall courses
  • Emergency First Aid courses
  • PCV and HGV Driver Assessments


We now have a huge amount of staff on our books for warehouse work, HGV driving, administration and cleaners. We have achieved everything to date through hard work and determination and with our motto:

‘Success is the belief you can do it’
