Kevin Williams, managing director at Zoom! 1hr Delivery, said, “We are so pleased to be creating lots of new jobs at a really challenging time for people looking for work. We have an average delivery time of just 28 minutes, so we needed dependable and diligent drivers to continue that commitment to customer service, and DM Recruitment have delivered just that.

“These new drivers will be not only be delivering for Co-op stores in our new areas, they will also be delivering for our own customers – who can order food, retail, alcohol, flowers and more through our app and website – bringing goods from local companies straight to their doors.”

Both Zoom! 1hr Delivery and DM Recruitment have head offices in Shrewsbury and have been rapidly expanding over the last five years.

Stuart Danks, director of DM Recruitment, said: “It is great to work with a fellow independent, local business, and be part of their exciting growth. This year we have taken all of our registration and application processes online, including a brand-new app, which has perfectly positioned us to recruit workers for Zoom! 1hr across England and Wales.”
