The Borders office of leading franchise, Driver Hire, has won the prestigious 2010 Scottish Recruitment ‘Best Small Recruitment Team Award’. Celebrating excellence in Scottish recruitment, the awards were presented at a gala dinner held at Glasgow’s Hilton Hotel.
The judges were looking at entrants’ key developments and achievements over the past year. They were also looking for evidence of best recruitment practice as well as strategies to attract, retain and develop their people. And, of course, how all this translates into business success.
Driver Hire Borders scored highly in all these areas. What particularly impressed the judges was the team’s ability to deliver an outstanding business performance in an area that’s been particularly hard hit by the recession.
The UK’s largest specialist supplier, Driver Hire provides temporary and permanent drivers and other logistics staff to local and national organisations in both the public and private sector. If they’re short of staff – perhaps because of illness or holidays – Driver Hire will supply them with a suitable replacement.
Driver Hire Borders is owned by Wilson Gibb Management Ltd who own and operate seven Driver Hire offices in Scotland and the North of England. It is managed by Russell Lavens who collected the award from BBC Scotland News presenter, Jackie Bird.
