I’ve worked my way up

I started at Driver Hire doing IT support on a one-year placement as part of my university course. When the course finished I was offered a full-time job and spent 10 years in the IT Support Team, where I led a team of four people. The team are responsible for delivering IT support to the Driver Hire regional office network, as well as almost 1,000 customers who use products like dh Licence Check.

“I love the culture here at Driver Hire. We work hard, but we have a lot of fun too.”

A new challenge

After working in IT for 10 years, I wanted to explore a new challenge. When I was given the opportunity to move into a completely different role as a National Account Manager, I thought why not! I am now working with our big national accounts, like GAP and CEMEX, negotiating rates and making sure the relationship goes smoothly.

They spotted my potential

I love the culture here at Driver Hire. We work hard, but we have a lot of fun too – there’s a real positivity about the business. For me personally, Driver Hire spotted my potential and gave me a chance to prove that I could take responsibility for building up part of the company.

It’s always been important to me that there’s an opportunity to progress and being able to move into this new role has given me the ability to do just that. I really enjoy working within the National Accounts team and look forward to making my future at Driver Hire a success.
