Most of our services are negotiated at bulk costs (e.g., training courses with partners or visa documentation or air tickets) and priced effectively to candidates. We are the lowest cost service provider in the market with a full refund guarantee (except a small processing charge) in case the candidate is not successful in getting placement abroad.

How are the interviews conducted?

Online video interviews are conducted on a platform suitable for the employer and candidate (WhatsApp video, Zoom, MS Teams, Google Meet, etc.) in English. Several times, employers want to conduct physical interviews and physical assessment (trailer driving) tests which are done in batches.

Does AnywhereJobs have a referral scheme?

We are always looking for skilled truck drivers whose lives can be improved through international placement opportunities. If you know of truck drivers who would be suitable to work abroad, please call us on +91-9599778882 or send us an email at hiring@anywherejosb.com to refer them.

How is training conducted?

AnywhereJobs conducts training for truck drivers to prepare them for global opportunities. Currently, English language training is conducted online in 120-minute sessions every day. Through our partnership with NSDC we are scaling up our “Spoken English for Truck Drivers” program across all districts of India. 

We have several driver-training institutes across India where we do left-hand trailer driver training and assessments for our shortlisted drivers. 

In addition, most of the employers we work with have their own driving schools in foreign countries where drivers are trained for 1 to 3 months. 

How long is the process from start to finish?

After we receive an application from the candidate, we assess them on their English proficiency and heavy vehicle driving skills and initiate a training program to ensure they meet the requirements of the employers. Once the candidate is ready to interview, we arrange interviews with potential employers and help the candidate secure an offer letter. After obtaining the necessary offer letter and work permit, we assist the candidate with visa, documentation, and air travel booking to the country of employment. This entire process can take up to 3 months. 

What are mandatory driving hours in these countries?

Most employers in Europe have flexible working hours, where drivers can work for up to 10 hours every day. However, these countries have strict regulations ensuring that drivers get an adequate amount of rest during their working hours. Additionally, the trucks have large and well-designed cabins for the comfort of drivers. You can read more about the life of truck drivers in Europe here.
