Every year, two drivers from each of British Gypsum’s five affiliated UK sites are entered into their Driver Of The Year and Most Improved Driver Of The Year competitions, and we are thrilled to announce the two successful Jempsons candidates.
After a period of observation and analysis, Jamie Nichols has been selected for the Driver Of The Year category and Thomas Goodsell has come out on top to be entered into the Most Improved Driver final.
On September 14 the two drivers, plus MD Mark Chamberlain, will make their way up to the British Gypsum depot at Burton-On-Trent. Jamie and Thomas will then take part in a day of practical tests – including being assessed on vehicle manoeuvring, load security and customer service.
Jamie is already feeling a duty to carry on our proud record at the finals. “I have to admit that the pressure on my shoulders to do well at the finals is already there, as Jempsons drivers have done very well over the past few years,” he says.
The winner for each category will receive £1,000 cash. Watch this space for more!
