Edinburgh are flavour of the month

17 August 2012

Being recognised amongst ones peers is sometimes the greatest of acolades - and thats exactly what has happened to Driver Hire Edinburgh City this summer.


Indeed being awarded Driver Hire ‘Office of the Month’ is the icing on the cake for this record breaking branch.


To win 'Office of the Month' branches are nominated by other offices in the network and then the Board of Directors at Driver Hire Group Services look at business performance over the period before selecting the winner.


With a number of new customer wins, a request to recruit 46 candidates in just two weeks and turnover increasing by nearly 200% year-on-year, Edinburgh were always in with a chance.


However, the Board also noted that Edinburgh City had received more nominations than any other branch in Driver Hire history.   


As Tony Goacher, Driver Hire’s Network Development Director explains, this was a great all-round performance by the office’s four person team. “To meet this recruitment challenge they generated around 400 enquiries through the smart use of jobsites, Facebook, texting existing candidates and, of course, working with their local Jobcentre. The team were stretched to the limits but they didn’t neglect existing clients and even found the time to win business with other new customers.”


Commenting on their award, Rachel McWilliams, Driver Hire Edinburgh City’s manager said: “Customer service is key to our success. And that means asking clients the right questions, listening to their specific requirements and, above all, meeting them. This meant we had to interview 125 candidates for a variety of roles including clerical, warehouse and delivery drivers. It was hard work so it’s great to have our efforts recognised in this way.”


Rachael, Scott, Lee and Ross were presented with a trophy, certificate and magnum of champagne to celebrate their success.


They’ve also collected points that they’re planning to spend on spa days, champagne afternoon tea, Ipods, Pure Evoke Radio’s amongst many other things.
