Recruitment specialist invests in franchise

Paul Crossley, Driver Hire Stoke

A recruitment specialist has bought Driver Hire’s Stoke franchise.

Driver Hire has a nationwide network of franchised offices providing temporary and permanent drivers and other logistics staff.

Paul Crossley has taken on the business after more than 10 years working as a client relationship manager for Paystream, which provides payroll and accountancy services for recruitment agencies and contractors.

Crossley said: “Working for myself has always been a long-term plan. But it’s actually come to fruition a bit earlier than I’d expected.

“I’ve bought the franchise with a view to growing it and, as my own boss, benefiting directly from its success.”

Graham Duckworth, Driver Hire’s franchise sales director said: “Paul’s background in a recruitment-related business, has given him a perfect combination of skills for running a successful Driver Hire franchise.”
