Driver Hire growth helps secure Recruiter Fast 50 listing

Ongoing growth at Driver Hire and Driver Hire Australia has helped propel the Specialist People Services Group into the Recruiter Fast 50.

The SPS Group is ranked at number 26 in the list which shows the fastest-growing privately-owned recruitment companies in the UK, according to revenue growth over the past three years. It is produced in association with international mergers and acquisitions specialist Clearwater International.

SPS chief executive Chris Chidley said: “As a people-led business, our aim is to provide high-quality, specialist labour solutions to clients across the transport and logistics sector – both here in the UK and in Australia.

“It is our focus on investment and innovation that has enabled us to deliver sustainable, year-on-year growth and it’s a strategy we intend to continue as we look forward to another successful year for our business.”

SPS has been backed since 2011 by private equity investor LDC.

Alongside Driver Hire Nationwide & Driver Hire Australia, other SPS companies include eServices & Training, which offers Driver CPC training and online people management services; and specialist rail recruitment, training and plant services business, ISS Labour.

In the year end March 2016, SPS group revenues reached £129.4m, with all areas of the business experiencing growth.
