Leading transport and logistics recruiter Driver Hire has announced that Amanda Jeffries (pictured right), a long-term employee for the chain, has become the new owner of its Wisbech franchise.

Jeffries, who has worked for the logistics company since 1997 across various offices, had been working for the previous franchisee at Wisbech but said that when “the opportunity came along to buy this one [the Wisbech franchise], it was perfect timing.”

With a territory which runs from Skegness to Hunstanton, Jeffries plans to develop the Cambridgeshire franchise and, alongside its core recruitment aspect, will be offering CPC training to drivers looking to hold a large goods vehicle licence.

Founded in 1983, Driver Hire provides temporary drivers and logistics staff to short-staffed local businesses and says it is the “UK largest specialist supplier” to this industry.

It has new franchise opportunities available from £30,000, with re-sales of existing franchises costing between £40,000 to £50,000.

Jeffries discussed her new venture with Driver Hire: “I’ve worked for some other agencies during my career, that experience has confirmed that Driver Hire is the best in the business.

“I believe very passionately in the brand and am looking forward to providing a first rate service to local businesses and other organisations in and around my catchment area.”
