Matthew’s Lucky Break!

Aberdare goods vehicle driver, Matthew Owen, had an unexpected additional pay day when he responded to an email sent to him by local transport & logistics specialist recruitment company, Driver Hire Cardiff. “A little while ago I applied for a job through Driver Hire Cardiff,” Matthew explains. “Unfortunately it went to another driver, but they kept my details on their records. Driver Hire then contacted me to see if I was still interested in further job opportunities. I’d actually found work with a local construction company, but I responded to the email and, as a result, my name went into a prize draw.”


Matthew’s name was first out of the hat, earning him a £200 top prize. What’s more, Driver Hire Cardiff boss, Darran Perkins (pictured left), had further good news for Matthew when he called at the office to collect his prize.

“I spotted another potential job for Matthew,” says Darran. “As his current position was only temporary and the new one was permanent it looks like a great move for him.”
