Local Recruiter Is Flavour Of The Month

The Leicester office of specialist recruiter, Driver Hire, is tops. Their recent outstanding business performance earned them ‘Office of the Month’ award, beating off the challenge of Driver Hire’s 90-plus nationwide network. During the month they had four record weeks. They also helped out with a new national contract where demand shot up from just five drivers a day to over 50.

As Tony Goacher, Driver Hire’s Network Development Director explains, that’s not the only reason Leicester won the award. “Whilst the team were stretched to the limits meeting customer demand for drivers, they didn’t neglect other important elements of their business. For instance they continued to book new Driver CPC training business, completed National Account courtesy calls, made presentations to potential new customers and renegotiated a long-standing contract. All in all, Paul, Shirley, Jodie, Sara and Paul have built what will hopefully be a sustainable platform for more success in the coming months.”

Commenting on their award, Paul McKenna who, along with wife Shirley, is joint franchise owner of Driver Hire Leicester said: “It’s great to have our hard work and efforts recognised. Customer service is key to our success and that means asking clients the right questions, listening to their specific requirements and, above all, meeting them.”

The team was presented with a trophy, certificate and magnum of champagne to celebrate their success. They’ve also collected points that they can spend on a wide range of prizes including activity days and consumer goods.

The UK’s largest specialist supplier, Driver Hire – a B2B franchised recruitment business - provides temporary and permanent drivers and other logistics staff to local and national organisations in both the public and private sector. If they’re short of staff – perhaps because of illness, holidays or seasonal demand – Driver Hire will supply them with a suitable replacement.
