The Grimsby office of leading recruitment franchise, Driver Hire, has new owners – Michael and Jayne O’Flynn. The office specialises in the supply of staff to the road transport and logistics industry.
Before buying their Driver Hire franchise, Jayne worked in facilities and event management and, most recently, in the property management industry. Michael was an Operations Director for gas and electrical safety company, gas-elec Safety Systems Ltd. Another established nationwide franchise business, it introduced Michael to the opportunities and benefits presented by franchising.
“When the opportunity came along to buy a Driver Hire franchise close to our home – we live in Goxhill – it was an opportunity that was hard to ignore. Of course, we did our homework on Driver Hire – and liked what we saw,” says Michael.
Jayne adds: “A Driver Hire franchise gives us the opportunity to grow a successful business, serving the needs of local employers and candidates alike. The back-up, systems and support offered by a Driver Hire franchise are almost unrivalled and give us every opportunity to deliver on this promise. We’re both really looking forward to serving the needs of the business community here in Grimsby and throughout Northern and Eastern Lincolnshire.”
Driver Hire is one of the UK’s longest established and most highly respected franchisors with a network of 104 offices. It recently won the ‘Best Franchisee Marketing Support’ award at the 2016 Franchisee Marketing Awards. Driver Hire franchisees provide temporary and permanent drivers and other logistics staff to businesses and organisations. They help when customers need extra staff to deal with holidays, illness or business expansion.
