Lincolnshire couple driving for business expansion

Driver Hire Grimsby & Scunthorpe’s husband and wife team Jayne and Michael O’Flynn are looking to expand their transport recruitment services as they celebrate two years in business.

The directors of the northern Lincolnshire branch, who are members of the Grimsby-based enterprise support club the Business Hive, recently launched DH Recruitment, seeking permanent staff for clients and partners in the wider logistics industry.

Driver Hire continue to supply temporary drivers to clients and in 2017 moved into larger offices within Grimsby’s Europarc Innovation Centre.

They also provide training for their drivers and are making connections with key providers in the area.

In 2017 Driver Hire Grimsby & Scunthorpe won the Best HGV Provider award at the Yorkshire and Humber Enterprise Awards, while Jayne was named the Work Wise Women Business Woman of the Year.

Michael said: “We’re known for the provision of temporary staff, operating largely in the transport sector and for supplying reliable drivers with excellent customer service, but now we’re expanding the scope of what we offer. We’re working with businesses and partnering with training organisations to offer a complete service.”

Jayne added: “We get a lot of requests for permanent placements as well as temporary, so now it’s time to explore both. The business has grown by 35%, we have the room to grow and we’ve taken on new staff to enable us to develop the business even further.”
