Driver Hire Toasts Record Year
Leading logistics recruitment franchise, Driver Hire, is celebrating its best ever financial year in 30 years of trading. Strong turnover figures for March 2014 completed an extremely impressive 12 months of business for the recruitment franchise, which has seen 38 of its offices across the UK increase turnover by 25 per cent.
Overall network turnover for the year ending 31st March 2014 was £78m, a 19 per cent increase from the previous year. The Driver Hire network also had 29 offices passing the £1million turnover mark.
Commenting on Driver Hire’s record- breaking achievement, Chris Chidley, Driver Hire’s Group Chief Executive, said: “Whilst there’s no doubt that the economy is improving, our rate of growth is easily outpacing it. There’s a definite flight to quality with an increasing number of businesses and organisations recognising that Driver Hire is a recruitment agency they can trust – a reliable and compliant nationwide partner for all their staffing needs. Breaking the record is a fantastic way to celebrate our 30th year in business.”
Driver Hire is prepared to continue the good work into the new financial year as the network’s overall growth finished the previous tax year at 27.5 per cent, proving that the industry, and indeed the business, is very much in the ascendancy.
