Established over 35 years ago, Driver Hire has become the UK’s largest specialist logistics recruiter, supplying customers in a wide range of sectors nationwide.
The Driver Hire network consists of 103 offices across the UK, all focused on supplying thousands of satisfied customers each year.
Driver Hire is also one of the UK’s most successful and highly respected franchise brands:
Our business reputation is built on the quality of service to both customers who need to find excellent staff and candidates who are looking for work. 94% of customers rated our service as Good or Excellent in our 2019 surveys and 94% of candidates said they were proud to work for Driver Hire. In a highly regulated industry, this reflects the high standards of professionalism from our franchisees and throughout our business.
There are several reasons to choose Driver Hire:
We are the UK’s largest specialist logistics recruiter, and proud to be a franchise business.
Since 1983, our 100+ franchisees have been supplying businesses and firms across the country with temporary drivers, as well as non-driving staff, for all sorts of needs.
Our near 40 years of experience have made us one of the top companies for finding different businesses the staff they need for permanent positions (we work on a no-success, no fee basis), long-term contracts or simply drivers for one-off jobs.
We don’t focus purely on drivers; we regularly help find people for non-driving roles that come with haulage links, such as warehouse staff and managers.
With all of this comes our robust central support system that provides both new and established franchisees with the training and support they need to succeed. This starts with identifying people who are suitable for running a Driver Hire recruitment business, to providing a comprehensive training programme, before then providing a level of operational support which is unrivalled in the industry.
Experience (not all key):
“Becoming a Driver Hire franchisee has absolutely changed our lives! I’ve gained all the benefits of being self-employed: the opportunity to run and grow our business, the freedom it can bring and the ability to make decisions for ourselves. It’s certainly given me things I wouldn’t have had if I’d stayed employed.”
John Griffiths – Driver Hire Taunton franchisee
“Operating at the £1m turnover mark, naturally I’m looking to grow the business even further to maximise its future sale price. The business has changed my life and my family life considerably compared to being employed. The business affords a good lifestyle, but you must put the work in at the start and have a good team around you to achieve this. It’s been a great move and I love what I do.”
Gary Riches – Driver Hire Colchester franchisee
“Buying my franchise was the best career move I have ever made. I love the systems, quality control and high standards that Driver Hire embraces - follow the model, and it will work. I am very proud to be a Driver Hire Franchisee and delighted to have been able to renew my franchise agreement for another 5 years.”
Amanda Jeffries – Driver Hire Wisbech & The Fens franchisee
“I cannot recommend and thank Driver Hire enough for providing me with such an opportunity for a dream career and lifestyle. The support during the process, advise as well as guidance throughout my years with Driver Hire has been a key element to a great working partnership. They have the personable touch, yet a solid national brand that is associated with quality and expertise. Thank you to all at Driver Hire and to anyone thinking about it, don`t miss the opportunity!”
