New Owner At Leading Portsmouth Recruiter

Jamie Williamson has purchased the Portsmouth franchise of leading transport and logistics recruiter, Driver Hire.

Jamie, brings 20 years’ of financial and business experience to his franchise. He worked for DHL Express and, more recently, Rentokil Initial Washrooms and Textiles Division. For the latter he was Chief of Staff to their European CEO and was based in Belgium with responsibility for managing change across 16 businesses throughout Europe. He also has previous experience of franchising which, by way of recommendation, brought him to Driver Hire.

“I was looking for a new challenge and this opportunity with Driver Hire came along,” says Jamie. To ensure he gets away to a flying start Jamie has completed an in-depth two-week training course to learn the basics of his new business. He’ll be working alongside experienced colleagues Mike St John Mosse, Roy Lovatt and Debbie Booker.

“Our focus will be on client retention and delivering added value to our market-leading service,” Jamie concludes.

Out of hours Jamie loves football and golf. Much of his spare time is taken up as the Chairman of Evo Stick Division One team, Fleet Town FC.

The UK’s largest specialist supplier, Driver Hire 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.
