Managed Service Success Stories

Since its inception, Drake International UK, has focused on improving performance and increasing profitability for our clients through better management of their workforce.

Our Managed Services division offers a tailored solution for your business where we manage the entire HR process, rather than just supply the labour, from a location on your site.
