Driver Hire, a strong advocate for volunteering & community support
It’s Volunteers’ Week this week, which runs from 1 June – 7 June 2020. It provides the chance to celebrate and say thank you for the contribution millions of volunteers make across the UK.
Award winning franchisor, Driver Hire – the specialist transport & logistics recruitment company – is a strong supporter of volunteering projects, having developed a strong volunteering and community support programme over the years. It’s been made possible in part by working with organisations like Participate Projects, as well as through direct connections.
Shipley based Participate Projects support hundreds of individuals, charities, social enterprises, community groups and schools. Driver Hire’s head office, based in Bradford, is proud to have supported several volunteering projects in recent years, including painting and decorating local community centres, landscape gardening and marshalling at disability sports events.
In addition, Driver Hire has also been working closely with Dixons City Academy since 2017 – a local school just outside Bradford’s city centre. Volunteers from Driver Hire have got involved with CV workshops, held mock interviews and also delivered seminars on careers to the students there.
Richard Owen-Hughes, Group Marketing Director, explains here why Driver Hire is such a strong advocate for volunteering, and why it’s good for the local community, the business and your own staff.
Established for over 35 years, Driver Hire, the current bfa HSBC ‘Franchisor of the Year’, is the UK’s largest specialist supplier with a nationwide network of franchised offices, providing 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.
