Driver Hire has announced two new appointments in Diane Toft and Steve Dethick, who will join its training and driver risk management team.
Toft joins as head of service delivery and Dethick joins as sales and training manager
John Keelan Edwards, risk management and technology director, Driver Hire, said: “Driver CPC training and driver risk management are growing and increasingly essential elements of the added value service our franchisees offer to all our clients.
“We’re delighted that we’ve attracted two high quality candidates, both with a wealth of industry experience, which will be of massive benefit to franchisees and to our customers.”
In Toft’s new role she will oversee the delivery and support team for Driver CPC, DriveWise and dh Licence Check, and she will also support the recruiter’s nationwide network’s provision of training products and manage Driver Hire’s JAUPT (Joint Approvals Unit for Periodic Training) compliance.
Dethick will be working with both existing and new clients, to help them strengthen their driver risk management programmes, and he will also conduct audits for compliance, driver profiling and creating new course content.
Driver Hire franchisees offer clients a transport and logistics recruitment service, and CPC training and driver risk management.
