Leading recruitment agency gap personnel has further strengthened its management team with the appointment of Rob Eyes to expand the company’s driving division.


Rob, based in gap personnel’s Liverpool office, plans to develop Driving Force and expand its portfolio that currently includes some of the largest distribution companies in Europe and the UK.


Rob has spent the past ten years honing his skills in recruitment, having worked in the industry since leaving university.


He is looking forward to taking Driving Force forward and raising the profile of the division, which currently provides a regular supply of professional drivers to more than 100 clients each day.


These include a range of professional and experienced drivers including van drivers; 7.5 tonne drivers; class 1 and 2 drivers and drivers’ mates.


“gap is a dynamic, forward-thinking company and I am really looking forward to focussing on the driving division, building it up and spreading the word about the quality services on offer,” said Rob, a keen golfer and Liverpool season ticket holder who is kept busy with his 18-month-old boy, Sonny.


Gary Dewhurst, managing director of gap personnel said: “We’re delighted that Rob has joined our team. He comes with a terrific range of experience and fully understands our long term plans.”


With its headquarters at Yale Business Village, Wrexham Technology Park, Wrexham gap personnel has grown to achieve £50m brand turnover and operates through a network of 30 branches across the UK in locations ranging from Glasgow to Newton Abbot in Devon.


The company was ranked ninth in the industrial sector in the 2009 Recruitment International Awards, which recognise the best 250 recruitment companies in the UK.
