The Derby office of leading recruitment franchise, Driver Hire, has a new owner – Kathy Wylie.

Before buying Driver Hire Derby, Kathy worked in property development and, prior to that, retail banking.

Driver Hire specialises in the supply of staff to the road transport and logistics industry. It’s one of the UK’s longest established and most highly respected franchisors with a network of 103 offices. Driver Hire franchisees provide temporary and permanent drivers and other logistics staff to businesses and organisations. They help when customers need extra staff to deal with holidays, illness or business expansion.

"I researched several franchising opportunities before settling on Driver Hire," says Kathy. "I first came across them at The National Franchise Exhibition. I attended a presentation by one of their franchisees which was inspirational. I liked the business model which enables me to offer an in-depth range of recruitment and training services. The back-up, systems and support offered by a Driver Hire franchise are almost unrivalled and give me every opportunity to grow a successful business, serving the needs of local employers and candidates alike."

Welcoming Kathy to Driver Hire, Franchise Sales Director, Graham Duckworth, said: "I’m delighted that Kathy has joined the Driver Hire network. Her past experience in customer service and sales coupled with her enthusiasm and drive will ensure she’s able to capitalise on the many opportunities to grow the business in Derby and be a highly successful franchisee."
