Amazing Adrian takes permanent role whilst Alba learns the ropes

You know how we always say drivers are the most important part of our business? They are! This is the story of how one of our many amazing drivers joined our agency and found permanent work.

Adrian and Alba working together

Adrian came to Driver Hire Bournemouth two years ago, looking for some temporary HGV driving work. He quickly became part of our driver team and worked for all our major customers. A few weeks ago, one of them asked to employ Adrian on a permanent basis. We were so thrilled and so was Adrian!

We’re specialists in our sector and here at Driver Hire Bournemouth, we really take the time to understand what driving commercially means. How? Well, we jump in the cab with our drivers and spend time on the road with them. This is what Alba, our office manager, did recently.

Alba spent a day with Adrian delivering goods in a 7.5t truck where she learnt the practical side of securing loads, driver’s hours, tachograph law, and safe loading and unloading.

On returning to the office, Alba said, “a big part of my job is to match our driver’s skills with customer requirements, so the more knowledge we have in these two areas, the more successful we can become. It’s very rewarding when, in Adrian’s case, we find our candidates permanent work, and both our driver and customer are left happy”.

Adrian explained his journey with us:

“I started working for Driver Hire Bournemouth in June 2017 after looking on the internet for HGV driving work. I love driving and being outdoors as I am really not an office person. When I found Driver Hire, they invited me to complete the registration and then quickly found me work. I have now found a permanent role as the job suits me perfectly.

I’ve been impressed since the start, they always pay on time and the office staff are very helpful, 24 hours a day! I even have the opportunity to speak my native language with the girls in the office. This is a great help for me but in general everyone at Driver Hire is very friendly. I recommend Driver Hire Bournemouth to other drivers who are looking for some flexible work and also to the ones who, like me, just enjoy being on the road.”

Thanks, Adrian! The team here wish you the very best in your new role!
