Driver Hire franchisees reflect a wide spectrum of working backgrounds from which relevant skills have been gained. Whilst some have worked in either recruitment or the transport sector, others have run their own business, worked as accountants, in education, IT, retail and even banking.
Ed Pockney, Driver Hire’s Uxbridge franchisee comments about the feel-good factor that comes with working in recruitment,
“Whilst the financial side is key, I just enjoy running my franchise. We’ve taken people who were unemployed onto our books and found them full-time jobs. That’s an amazing feeling.”
Ed joined Driver Hire in November 2014. With a business background in derivatives and money-broking, prior to Driver Hire he’d spent 28 years working in major financial centres around the world: London, New York and Tokyo.
Jamie Williamson, Driver Hire’s Portsmouth franchisee adds,
“My quality of life has improved. I’m the one in control of my own destiny. I’m no longer reliant on the decisions of others and boardroom red tape. I’d absolutely buy a Driver Hire franchise again and wish I’d looked at it a few years ago.”
Jamie took over the Driver Hire Portsmouth resale franchise in January 2012. A friend who worked in the franchise industry had suggested he look at Driver Hire as he knew they were an established, award-winning brand. Prior to joining Driver Hire Jamie had worked for DHL in a number of finance and commercial roles for over ten years.
