From Manager to Franchisee at Wakefield
Sarah Parker liked working as a manager in our Driver Hire Wakefield office, so much, she’s bought the business.
A recruitment professional with 15 years’ experience, Sarah was the branch manager for the previous owners.
“I love working for Driver Hire and have wanted to buy the business for some time,” says Sarah. “I know how to run it; I know how successful it is. When the previous owners announced they were selling, it was a great opportunity and I didn’t want to miss it. I’m really excited.”
Graham Duckworth, Driver Hire’s Franchise Sales Director commented: “We’re delighted to welcome Sarah to our franchised network. She’s one of a number of office managers who’ve taken the opportunity to buy the business they’ve been working for. We’re confident Sarah will be another highly successful Driver Hire franchisee.
Sarah added: “There are plenty of opportunities to grow the business here in Wakefield. I’m looking forward to growing the business further by meeting the staffing needs of local businesses, and indeed any organisation which operates a fleet of vehicles.”
Established for over 30 years, the current bfa HSBC ‘Franchisor of the Year’, Driver Hire provides temporary and permanent drivers and other logistics staff to local and national organisations in both the public and private sector. If they’re short of staff – perhaps because of illness, holidays or seasonal demand – Driver Hire will supply them with a suitable replacement.
