Job goes as Help the Aged outsources

HELP the Aged has outsourced the management of its 370-vehicle fleet to Dun and Bradstreet, a move which makes fleet manager Roger Hall redundant. The charity will maintain ownership of the fleet, but it is looking to hand over all other aspects of its operation to Dun and Bradstreet in an open-ended deal with a three-month notice period.

Dun and Bradstreet was chosen as the front-runner in negotiations following a tender process for the fleet of about 220 vans and 150 cars. It will work with Fleet Support Group, which has the maintenance contract for the fleet. Peter Gray, director of UK Housing for the charity, said: 'We had a one-man team running the fleet, but the fleet has grown substantially in size. It is not economic for us to take on a large in-house management team, but joining an organisation which already oversees large fleets will bring savings for us.'
