Transforming a vision into reality
The ever changing landscape of a temporary workforce presents a multitude of complex processes. DRS was developed to resolve our clients’ biggest headaches – to deliver an all-in-one solution that manages the fast pace of temporary recruitment, in the safest, most efficient way possible.
The software was originally developed by a company for over 16 years until it was taken over by recruitment industry leader, Sadie Weston, in 2016. Sadie led a team of software developers to create the most advanced all-in-one recruitment software in the UK; her vision to operate with ultra compliance, tells a unique story of sheer determination to help others.
Sadie’s dedication is infectious, every member of the team is committed to doing the right thing in the best way possible, in everything that they do. The team never stop exploring, in order to push the boundaries of technical capability. Technical innovation doesn’t stop, so neither do they. Read Sadie’s story here.

Our key influencers
Across the company, one thing is universally true of the people at DRS, they care deeply about what they do and the impact it has for their clients. It is personal to all of them. The key influencers within the business, have fostered a culture of self-belief with bundles of energy fuelling their focus every day.
There are many exceptional individuals throughout the business world, but there are fewer successful leaders who remain grounded, hands-on and simply ‘nice’ to work with. At DRS we are fortunate to have both the above and are proud to introduce our key influencers within the business.
