Recruitment firm Driver Hire has been named as one of the best workplaces in the UK.

The company - which has an office in Montgomery Way, Rosehill, Carlisle - is ranked 51st in the annual Great Place to Work list of the best workplace cultures.

Its office in Carlisle is one of a network of more than 100 offices across the UK and the firm supplies commercial vehicle drivers to logistics providers and fulfils nearly a million shifts a year.

Driver Hire was recognised for its strong workplace culture of integrity and respect, commitment to staff welfare, rigorous hiring procedures and employee engagement and development.

Chris Chidley, chief executive, said: “We are incredibly proud of our business and our people, and we make a concerted effort to engage our employees to make sure they are too. Our most recent staff survey showed that 93 per cent of Driver Hire employees are proud to work here.

“We’ve seen significant growth over the past few years, and recently reported a turnover of more than £100m in our fourth successive year of record trading. This growth and our reputation as an industry leader is in part down to our employees taking pride and care in the work we do. To be recognised as one of the UK’s best workplaces is a great accolade for the positive culture we aim to foster.”
