Welcome to Driver Hire Uxbridge October 2016
It’s nearly two years since I took over here in Uxbridge and a lot has happened in that time. We are now a much busier and larger branch with many more drivers and clients than before. My staff has increased from just Arnika and myself to a team of six. We have learnt a lot about our client base and how best to meet their needs be that last minute or longer term and permanent roles. Our philosophy is that looking after each client, every shift and our driver is the way to build successful relationship and business.
We have specialized in HIAB drivers and have trained over 35 of drivers since Spring 2015. Only by investing in our drivers by upskilling them can we meet our client’s needs. Equally I take great satisfaction every time a driver gains a qualification that allows him to boost his earnings and career potential. We also enjoy seeing our drivers join our clients on a full-time basis. With my current staff we manage to speak to our drivers in English, Polish, Rumanian and German and this helps them feel more at home and work effectively.
My Staff are;
Arnika, she is my office manager and has nearly four years’ experience with the office. She is one of our two Polish speakers and has been in the UK over ten years now. Her commitment and excellence has been recognized widely within the company and she won South East Consultant of the year in 2016.
Magda has been with me for nearly two years now and runs our payroll and invoicing department. She is our second Polish speaker and is very good at sorting out all the problems and issues that our drivers have.
Karen, she is our business development manager and grew up around transport in the Uxbridge area as her father ran a haulage business. She excels at producing new clients and contacts and loves nothing more than popping out of the office to make a series of visits around the patch. We never really know what she does but the results are impressive and her contribution to us winning the 2016 Champions competition was immense.
Roxana is our newest member of staff and our Rumanian speaker. While Driver Hire is a new world for her recruitment is her passion and what she studied at university. She is focussed on registering candidates and managing our compliance. She also runs special projects like Uber for the branch.
Ed, I spent my whole career in the City as a trader and then a broker and from 1996 to 2014 I was working overseas. This is why I focus so hard on what my customers want and need and go the extra mile to service these requirements. I also understand the mentality of our overseas drivers as I have turned up in a new country with no contacts and local knowledge and had to build a career and life there.
I strive to run a professional business where we seek to maximise the potential of all our drivers and clients. Getting a driver into a full-time role or upskilling him to earn more money gives me a buzz each time. Next year we settle into our larger office and start CPC training on site, 2017 will be another year of strong growth and staying true to our principles.
