Midlands transport firm on the look-out for drivers

A Midlands-based provider of urgent or sensitive transport is planning to create up to 40 new jobs.

In a statement, released this week, Speedy Freight revealed the roles are being created due to new ownership of the firm’s Leicester and Derby franchises.

General manager Gary Sawyer, who took over the Bolton, Wigan and Oldham franchises two years ago, says he sees exactly the same opportunities to contribute to the local economy in the Castle Donnington area.

“We are recruiting now for up to 30 drivers – mostly of small vans. We will also be taking on up to nine office staff over the coming months,” he said.

Speedy Freight transports any cargo that is urgent or requires special or immediate handling – for instance, legal documents with a deadline or urgent airfreight coming into East Midlands airports during the night.
