We’re a people business, and so we believe in offering a personal service. If you’re looking for work, we want to know about you and what you’re looking for in your next role. Looking for staff? Every organisation has particular needs – we want to understand yours.
When you deal with Driver Hire (Plymouth & Cornwall), here are the people who’ll be looking after you:
Connor Ferguson – Operations Manager
Having completed an apprenticeship in Business Administration, Connor joined Driver Hire in November 2012 from an environmental company. He has learned all aspects of the business and if you call the office will often be the first to answer your call. Outside Driver Hire, Connor is passionate about football and spent two years at Plymouth Argyle as a Junior.
Congratulations are due to Connor as he was promoted on 1/6/13 from Business Administration Trainee to his new position as Operations Co-ordinator. More congratulations are due to Connor on his (September 2014) promotion to Operations Manager. There’s no stopping him – watch out Rod, he’ll be running the company in a few years….
Kerrie Rundle – Accounts & Payroll Manager
Kerrie joined us from a family business in May 2014 and is firmly entrenched in the “engine room” of the office processing timesheets, invoicing and preparing the accounts. Kerrie has made a huge difference and was promoted (December 2014) from Accounts Assistant to Accounts & Payroll Manager. Like many of us here, she is a real petrolhead and a competitive stock car racer at times. Email: email@example.com
Tom Williams – Manager – South Devon Office
Tom joined Driver Hire in January 2015 via a recommendation from one of our staff. Following the great reports we received following his one week induction at DH Head Office in Bradford, Tom has developed a great rapport with both our staff and customers. Passionate about Rugby, Tom is luckily First Aid trained.
Tom is part of the 24/7/365 “on-call” rota, so if you call us out of hours, Tom may well be looking after you. Along with being the Assistant Manager of Operations, Tom is also responsible for customer sales and service in the South Devon area. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Mike Hayward – Senior Recruitment Consultant/Head of I.T.
Mike joined Driver Hire Plymouth in May 2012 as a multi-drop van driver. He has worked with a huge number of our clients and knows most of the “van jobs” back to front and sideways. In addition to this, he is a very talented I.T. developer/engineer who designed and implemented all our in-house telephone and computer systems.
Mike is also an ex-racer and confirmed petrolhead. In May 2018, he was persuaded to join our Operations staff, bringing his driver knowledge and technical ability into the office. Welcome Mike!
Jordan Priddle-Simpson – Recruitment Consultant
Driver Hire Plymouth welcomed Jordan in June 2018. He is one of the people answering the telephone, taking bookings and interviewing new drivers. Coming from a food/logistics background, he intuitively understands the complexities of supplying drivers and other staff to our customers. Like Mike, he is both a complete petrolhead (loves Formula 1 and driving in general) and into I.T. of all sorts, building his own complex PC’s…
