Welcoming new franchisee Darren to Derby
A huge welcome to our new Driver Hire Derby franchisee – Darren Hooley.
Before buying the business, Darren had 30 years experience in the construction industry, working at both managerial and director level. Most recently he was Construction Director for Halesowen based, Metstructures Ltd.
Darren decided to buy his Driver Hire franchise for a number of reasons: “I was working away a lot and missed my family. I was also working long hours and decided that I’d prefer to work hard for myself and profit directly from my efforts,” says Darren.
“I researched several franchising opportunities before settling on Driver Hire,” he continues. “Moving from construction to recruitment isn’t totally random. In two of my previous jobs, I’ve been responsible for transport, working with driver recruitment agencies. That’s given me a good insight into what makes a good recruitment business. I’m really looking forward to meeting the recruitment needs of a wide range of businesses here in Derby.”
Welcoming Darren to Driver Hire, Franchise Sales Director, Graham Duckworth, said: “I’m delighted that Darren has joined the Driver Hire network. His enthusiasm and drive will ensure he’s able to capitalise on the many opportunities to grow the business in Derby and be a highly successful franchisee.”
