Transport & Logistics Recruitment Agency – Driver Hire

Company Overview

Established for over 30 years, Driver Hire is a B2B management franchise in the vibrant recruitment sector. With over 100 offices nationwide, our franchisees specialise in supplying commercial drivers and other logistics staff to the private and public sectors. We provide high-quality temporary staff to cover holidays, sickness and longer contracts. We can respond to a staffing emergency, or help customers with strategic staff planning. With strong demand for our core services, additional revenue streams include permanent recruitment and training services (classroom based and online).

Franchise Overview

Driver Hire has been franchising since 1987 and currently has 100+ offices throughout the UK; 92 of these are franchised.

Driver Hire is part of the £32.2bn UK recruitment and staffing industry and the market for temporary drivers alone is estimated to be worth around £2bn.

In 2017/18 the average turnover for a Driver Hire franchised office, operating for the full year – was £1,180,450. This is three times the industry average – according the 2015 bfa and NatWest survey – of £378,400.

Driver Hire has also been a bfa HSBC ‘Franchisor of the Year’ award winner five times and a finalist 12 times out of the last 13 years.


Our intensive two to six week foundation programme, held at our Bradford head office, provides all the core knowledge needed to run a successful business, even if you are new to the industry.

Topics include important transport and recruitment industry legislation and all aspects of day-to-day operations, including finding and winning new customers, candidate recruitment, finance, marketing, IT systems, compliance and more.

Further ongoing training and updates are provided on a regular basis

Daily Life of a franchisee

Every day is different. Typical tasks – depending on how the team is structured – will include sales calls and customer visits, interviewing candidates, holding team meetings and planning local marketing campaigns.

Our offices offer a 24/7 service. This doesn’t mean someone has to be based in the office round the clock, as staff normally take turns being on call.

Working in a Driver Hire office can be hectic, but, it’s always rewarding!
