FRANCHISEFOCUS INVESTMENT: FROM £35 ,000 In demand Driver Hire leads the way in the essential logistics sector D


river Hire – the bfa/HSBC Franchisor of the Year in 2019 – is the UK’s leading specialist


supplier of staff to the booming logistics sector, providing a wide range of drivers and non-driving staff to organisations throughout the UK.


Significant demand Driver Hire operates in a high-demand sector. Temporary recruitment in the UK is estimated to be worth £42.3billion* per annum. Even more relevant to Driver Hire is the major role logistics plays in the UK economy – meaning demand for temporary drivers is huge.


"The power of a well-known brand, such as Driver Hire, is important when considering any franchise"


Strength in the brand Over the last four years, the average turnover of a Driver Hire office is over £1million. The turnover for top-performing franchisees is around £3million. The power of a brand is especially important when considering any franchise. Driver Hire has nearly four decades of experience in logistics recruitment and is a very well- known, reputable brand – giving clients and candidates excellent reasons to work with them. An award-winning website; partnership with Indeed, the UK’s largest jobs board; and Driver Hire's extensive marketing and promotional work all help to further promote the brand. Driver Hire’s model has proven itself,


even during the tougher times of recessions, and more recently the Covid-19 pandemic. The network showed great resilience and bounced back strongly, reaching close to pre-Covid levels by the


end of the Summer 2020. Business is now booming, and 2021/22 may well end up being Driver Hire’s best-ever year.


Innovation Driver Hire has always been a nimble, innovative business, but the pandemic accelerated innovation further, with investment in software, products and processes to support franchisees in this challenging time. This included increasing network capacity to remotely access the Driver Hire bespoke operating system, optimising the remote operating capabilities of its office and a web-based recruitment tool for remote candidate registrations – streamlined the entire driver recruitment process.


Franchisee success Since the start of the pandemic, 18 new franchisees joined the Driver Hire network, across 13 separate offices. The new franchisees came from a range of different backgrounds. One was Oliver Maxwell, who at the age of just 25 bought


the Driver Hire Milton Keynes business. Oliver had already worked in the Driver Hire network at another office in the region, giving him the confidence to run his own Driver Hire business. Having completed his first full


year, where business has performed exceptionally well, including major levels of growth, Oliver says: “I was honestly terrified of taking over a business during a pandemic.” He adds: “It’s been one hell of a journey so far and I’m so proud of the progress we’ve made in such a short space of time. With further members of staff joining the office in September to help push the office further in the right direction, I’m excited to see what we can achieve.” 
