The Carlisle office of leading recruitment franchise, Driver Hire, has a new owner – Marc Harrison. Previously, Marc was a member of Driver Hire’s head office franchise support team.
"I joined Driver Hire four years ago and absolutely love the business," says Marc. "Because I was working closely with Driver Hire franchises across the UK I’ve learnt a lot about operating one and seen the massive opportunities to develop a really worthwhile business. When the opportunity to buy Carlisle came along I felt it was the right time to become my own boss.
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 101offices. 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.
"Driver Hire’s proven business model enables me to offer an in-depth range of recruitment services to local businesses. 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 Marc to Driver Hire, Franchise Sales Director, Graham Duckworth, said: "I’m delighted that Marc has joined the Driver Hire network. When one of our support team buys a franchise it’s a great endorsement of the potential of a Driver Hire franchise. His previous experience in franchise support coupled with his enthusiasm and drive will ensure he’s able to capitalise on the many opportunities to grow the business in Carlisle and be a highly successful franchisee."
