By Grimsby Telegraph | Posted: 2 Jul 2018

IAN Gordon has been named as the first winner of Driver Hire Grimsby and Scunthorpe’s Driver of the Year Award.

The presentation was made at the Europarc base of the specialist recruiter. 

Director Jayne O’Flynn said: “It is a real pleasure to present Ian Gordon with our first Driver of the Year Award. 

“Ian has worked for Driver Hire for some time now, and has excelled in meeting all aspects of our demanding criteria for this award. It was wonderful to receive such positive feedback from our clients about Ian. 

“We are very proud of Ian and the service he has given to Driver Hire and our clients.”

He won a cheque for £500, an inscribed plaque and a voucher for two for dinner, bed and breakfast at The Ashbourne Hotel, North Killingholme.

“One of the first things that we noticed when we bought Driver Hire in February 2016 was the quality of their drivers,” Mike O’Flynn added. 

“Many drivers come back to Driver Hire and continue to work with us over several years. This is a compliment to Driver Hire and the quality of staff we provide to our clients. 

“It is also the reason why Driver Hire Grimsby and Scunthorpe have introduced this annual award to recognise excellence in our workforce.”

The criteria was designed to cover high performance in 10 categories, from which drivers would be scored.

Driver Hire Grimsby and Scunthorpe has more than 20 years’ experience supporting fleet operators and logistics businesses throughout the UK.

The team offers temporary and permanent driving jobs, non-driving work and Driver CPC training, supplying staff to  
companies in northern Lincolnshire.
