New franchisees Paul and Julie Brearey at Driver Hire Leeds West
Driver Hire Nationwide is please to welcome on board new joint franchisees Paul and Julie Brearey who have purchased our Driver Hire Leeds West office.
Before buying this particular B2B management re-sale franchise opportunity, Paul ran his own business working as an independent finance broker, helping local and national businesses source asset finance. “I liked the idea of franchising,” says Paul. “When this opportunity came along in my home city, it was too good to miss. Driver Hire is a good fit with my skills and it’s a secure business model.”
Paul’s wife and joint franchisee in this new business venture, Julie, was formerly a member of the teacher training team at Leeds City College. Since going freelance, she’s delivered bespoke and accredited courses to a wide range of businesses and organisations. Julie will now be using her expertise to run the office’s Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (Driver CPC) training courses. “With Driver CPC’s September 2014 deadline drawing ever closer, I’m expecting to be kept very busy,” says Julie.
Completing the three person team is recruitment consultant, Andy Thorpe. Andy needs no introduction to existing Driver Hire customers. He’s been an essential member of the Driver Hire Leeds West team for the past ten years.
Paul comments, “We’re really looking forward to running our own business together, working with customers old and new and assisting businesses across the west of Leeds with all their recruitment needs.”
