Simply Waste Solutions’ driver Jamie Jarman has been presented with a prestigious award, The City Mark: Driver of the Year, at the 2019 LAPV’s Future Fleet Forum.

Jamie has been a Simply Waste LGV driver for nearly 5 years and winning this award is a fantastic testament to the hard work and dedication that he shows in his job. He always ensures that the jobs he’s given are completed to the best of his ability and that the customer is left happy.

Why was Jamie nominated?

Nominated by our Academy Training Manager, not only is Jamie focused on customer service, he also:

  • has an excellent training record
  • is always keen to share his experience and knowledge with new drivers
  • is a safe and efficient driver

Jamie commented

“I was surprised and honoured to learn that I had been entered in the Future Fleet Awards back in November. Earlier in the year, I was delighted to hear that I had been short-listed and invited to attend at none-other than the historic Guild Hall. Now the realisation of what may happen set in; being one of the lucky few to make it into the City Mark Driver of the Year Awards. Then to hear your name called as the winner is still so surreal.

I feel very privileged that Kevin, Dean and Simply Waste Solutions had put me through to this prestigious award in the first place. Once again, thank you to all the guys and girls at the Transport Office that with their hard work behind the scenes making things like this possible.”

Well done Jamie!
