Why a Recruitment Franchise?
“A great business opportunity with an award-winning management franchise”
Driver Hire is the UK’s leading supplier of drivers and logistics staff to the private and public sectors. Every day our network of over 100 recruitment franchises provide workers, mainly on temporary assignments, to a wide variety of customers ranging from international hauliers and major retailers to builders’ merchants, parcel delivery companies and local authorities. Our customers tend to be businesses with their own fleet of vehicles for which we provide the drivers.
Recruitment Franchise Opportunities
In the UK alone the recruitment industry is worth over £35.7 billion according to the 2017/18 survey by the Recruitment & Employment Confederation, an 11% increase on the previous year.
Simon Adcock, in his role as Head of Professional Services for HSBC UK, which supports recruitment businesses commented on the recruitment sector:
“Despite current uncertainty, the recruitment industry’s focus on the quality of service and its enthusiasm for technological innovation has seen it continue to flourish, boosting the wider UK economy. In a world where the way we work is becoming ever more flexible, the role of the recruiter is connecting people to opportunities and employers to people has never been as important. That’s why we remain firmly committed to firms in this vital part of the professional services sector.”
Driver Hire is the UK’s best recruitment franchise, ranked the number one recruitment franchise in the Elite Franchise Top 100 listing for the last 5 years.

A market worth over £2bn
Driver Hire is part of the £35.7bn UK private recruitment and staffing industry. The market for temporary drivers alone is estimated to be worth over £2bn, boosted by ever-increasing customer demands for a flexible workforce and the massive growth of online retailing which requires more delivery drivers.
If you need any further convincing, just stand by the side of any busy road and note the volume and diversity of commercial vehicles, ranging from articulated trucks through to courier vans. Every single one is operated by a current or potential customer of Driver Hire and at some time most of them will need a driver from us. Driver Hire and its franchises are perfectly placed to benefit from this boom in demand.
