Driver Hire Franchise
Driver Hire is the UK’s largest specialist logistics recruiter, supplying customers in a wide range of sectors nationwide.
Since 1983, our 100+ franchisees have been supplying businesses and firms across the country with temporary drivers, as well as non-driving staff, for all sorts of needs; we are now the UK’s largest specialist logistics recruiter, and proud to be a franchised business.
Our near 40 years of experience have made us one of the top companies for finding different businesses the staff they need for permanent positions (we work on a no-success, no fee basis), long-term contracts or simply drivers for one-off jobs.
We don’t focus purely on drivers; we regularly help find people for non-driving roles that come with haulage links, such as warehouse staff and managers.
With all of this comes our robust central support system that provides both new and established franchisees with the training and support they need to succeed. This starts with identifying people who are suitable for running a Driver Hire recruitment business, to providing a comprehensive training programme, before then providing a level of operational support which is unrivalled in the industry.
Driver Hire is also one of the UK’s most successful and highly respected franchise brands:
- bfa HSBC Franchisor of the Year Silver Winner in 2022 and Gold Winner in 2019
- Elite Franchise Franchisor of the Year 2023
- Regular Finalist (15 out of the last 18 years) and a seven-times award winner in the bfa HSBC Franchisor of the Year awards
Driver Hire's excellent reputation is based on the quality of service to both customers who need to find excellent staff and candidates who are looking for work. 98% of customers rated our service as Good or Excellent in our 2023 survey and 95% of candidates said they were proud to work for Driver Hire. In a highly regulated industry, this reflects the high standards of professionalism from our franchisees and throughout our business.
