Transport and logistics recruitment franchise Driver Hire is celebrating one of its temporary drivers winning the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) award as 2008's 'One in a Million Temporary Worker of the Year'. Colin Ramesden (pictured right (R) with Driver Hire Chief Executive Chris Chidley) collected the award at a presentation held at the Houses of Parliament.

Driver Hire franchise owner and Colin's employer John Fraser says: 'My heartiest congratulations go to Colin who is a worthy winner of this award in recognition of his hard work and dedication to duty. In the last four years in a row a Driver Hire temporary driver has won the REC 'Agency Driver of the Year', which speaks volumes about the excellent quality management and training systems I bought when I purchased my Driver Hire franchise.'

With over 100 offices in its network nationwide, Driver Hire is one of the UK's largest suppliers of temporary and permanent staff to the transport and logistics industry. Driver Hire's Chief Executive Chris Chidley enthuses: 'This is fantastic news for Colin, his colleagues at Hull and the Driver Hire business generally. Colin Ramsden is an outstanding example for all temporary drivers to emulate. Not only is Colin a national champion two other Driver Hire drivers; Laura Salmon and Simon Roe were also highly commended. This confirms, yet again, that because of Driver Hire's careful selection process and commitment to maintaining the very highest quality checks, the company can truly claim that its drivers really are the best.'
