Record Week for Edinburgh West

11 December 2013

Now that the figures have been produced it has been confirmed that week-ending Sunday 8th December was the busiest ever week for Driver Hire Edinburgh West!

On the back of winning a number of new contracts and an increase in demand from regular customers they experienced a 32% increase on the same week last year, that in turn was 3% more than they’ve ever managed in a single week before – going right back to the branch opening in 1995!

For the team consisting of Nicola Hardy (branch manager), Fiona Hamilton (consultant), Andrew Prothero (trainee consultant) and Sharon Gray (resourcer) the main challenge was in finding the extra members of staff, as Nicola herself says “we’ve had a busy few weeks recruiting the right people, but so far the time and effort we've put in has paid off. We're always methodical in checking who we recruit before placing them on contracts and our customers appreciate that, likewise our staff appreciate we go the extra mile to keep them busy.

This year our customers have really understood the marketplace and they’ve been keen to work with us and that has made a massive difference in our ability to provide what they want, when they want it – but of course without the people working for us being as good as they have been then we couldn’t have achieved any of this .” However, the team isn’t resting on their laurels as consultant Fiona Hamilton adds “I’ve still over 200 C+E shifts to fill between now and Christmas and I’ve a customer that will use any experienced 'Multidrop' driver we can find them in the same period – so there’s still loads of opportunity for drivers and some of the pay rates are exceptional.

So if anyone is interested in even just one shift before Christmas then get in touch." If you are interested in working with the team in Edinburgh West either on a full-time, part-time or weekend basis call them now on - 0131 624 7712 (24hrs) or email edinburghwest@driverhire.co.uk
