A DRIVER recruitment office in Portsmouth has been recognised by its parent company.
Driver Hire held its winter conference at Cranage Hall in Cheshire where staff from the transport and logistics recruiter were awarded for performance – including the Portsmouth team which is based at the Basepoint Business and Innovation Centre in Havant.
Jeremy Neale, Driver Hire UK’s managing director said: ‘The Portsmouth team is having a fantastic year.
‘They’ve got energy and enthusiasm and show real passion and a desire to succeed, all of which is being reflected in an outstanding business performance.’
The team were given recognition as in one week during December the transport and logistics specialist recruitment agency achieved its best ever trading performance since the office opened almost 20 years ago.
The company says it is part of an outstanding year for the business which is currently seven per cent up on same time last year.
Driver Hire Portsmouth, which is a franchise, supplies temporary and permanent drivers and other logistics staff to local and national businesses.
It helps when customers need extra staff to deal with holidays, illness, peak trading periods or business expansion.
Jamie Williamson, owner of Driver Hire Portsmouth added: ‘We’re a hardworking team at Portsmouth and it’s great to have our efforts recognised.’
The main focus of the conference was sales development and how to get the most from the upturn in the economy.
According to Driver Hire the conference was an inspirational day, combining business sessions with entertainment and celebrations of success, highlighted by their annual Franchisee of the Year awards which was won by the Gatwick branch.
