A BIRMINGHAM-BASED couple have launched their own HGV driver training business to help tackle the countrywide driver shortage.
After being made redundant, transport worker Neil Thomas, decided to make the dream of running his own business a reality.
Together with his wife Mary, and start-up support from Birmingham Chamber of Commerce (BCC), the couple launched Blue Triangle Training and have already created two full-time jobs.
It’s still early days, but I can already see that Neil is enjoying greater job satisfaction and feels more in control.
Neil has wanted to run his own business for some time and we knew that he would regret it if he didn’t give it a go. It’s still early days for the company, but we’re looking forward to the future.
