Driver Require’s CEO, Kieran Smith, was interviewed by The Financial Times and featured in an article "Companies sound alarm on Christmas supply disruption"

The article discusses the ongoing chronic driver shortage as UK business leaders stepped up calls for the government to help fix worker shortages that have resulted in empty supermarket shelves by warning of increased disruption in the run-up to Christmas.

Kieran was quoted "chief executive of Driver Require, a recruitment agency, said official figures showed that the driver shortages were not just the result of EU workers departing the UK after Brexit.  He added that 50,000 UK-based drivers had left the profession since the Covid-19 pandemic began, with a disproportionate number of those being aged over 45."
