As a business, we wanted to improve the level of experience at managerial level within our General Haulage and Pallet Network. When we approached Bis Henderson to support in placing a couple of new roles, it was clear our Consultant not only had a great understanding of the industry we operate in but also grasped our objectives and requirements as a business. That level of understanding led to a super quick delivery of a very high-calibre candidate shortlist – which we thought would be a challenge due to the experience the candidates needed to have. Our consultant helped us identify a wider pool of talent, and approached individuals with a transferrable skill-set to help mitigate the challenge we usually face, and as such found candidates that really fitted the bill. We’re over the moon with the results, we have two excellent individuals who have excelled and improved our business greatly. We would definitely recommend Bis Henderson to other businesses in our sector.
Yusen Logistics UK have worked with Bis Henderson on several roles, seeking their support with various requirements and objectives which have always been met. They offer a broad range of services and specialisms, but we would say that their point of difference is the wealth of industry experience, utilising senior practitioners from a wide range of industry verticals. Bis Henderson really take the time to ensure that they fully understand each brief that is issued by us, with a level of detail that ensures any candidates that are proposed are of the required standard. They are highly professional in everything they do and have a very open, honest and pragmatic approach. Most importantly they are easy to do business with and we would highly recommend them to other businesses for similar services.
I began working with Bis Henderson Recruitment for the first time in June 2020 to fill a new Operations Director role. We hadn’t previously worked with a specialist recruiter for our eCommerce operation needs, but the difference in moving to a specialist in this field was a stark contrast to the experiences we’ve had previously. Immediately the team understood the calibre of individual we were looking for and the kind of experience they needed to have in order to be successful in the role. Recruiting anyone at Director level is a key hire and Bis Henderson fully understood the importance of this, presenting us with a carefully selected handful of candidates, each with a detailed analysis of why they felt they were worth consideration. We interviewed three candidates and took two forward to second interview. The final result was a very positive hire and a real addition to Rinkit’s senior management team. The experience of working with Bis Henderson was very positive and I would recommend them highly. This is the start of an ongoing relationship, we’re already looking to place further management roles with the team and we look forward to working with Bis Henderson moving forward.
Lately Bis Henderson Recruitment have helped me recruit a Shift Manager, Driver Trainer and Night Administrator roles. Engagement from the Bis team was great, communication excellent and responses were always prompt. The candidates were proposed in a timely manner and there’s no doubt the experience of the team coupled with their knowledge of the industry helped with their understanding of our brief and the range of applicants offered for every role. The service was quick, efficient, very easy to use and ultimately produced candidates with the right levels of skills, knowledge and experience. The interview process was handled well and we achieved our goals. Bis Henderson Recruitment offers a swift reliable service that delivers results and I am happy to recommend them to others.

Consumer Sector Director
Unipart Consumer Logistics
We needed to add both a Transport Operations Manager and a Head of Distribution to our team and having met with several agencies, we felt it would be best to work with a niche recruiter who had a high level of expertise in the logistics sector. Our consultant had a great understanding of our industry and the skills-set required for both roles they were recruiting, he also took the time to understand our brief and sought clarification around a couple of objectives and requirements to make sure he focussed on the right individuals to produce a high quality short-list. The candidates put forward were of a high calibre. We were very happy with the results produced by Bis Henderson Recruitment, their industry knowledge sets them apart from other recruiters and we’d definitely recommend them to other businesses.
We contacted Bis Henderson Recruitment when the need arose for an experienced Operations Manager who was available for an immediate start. They very quickly took time to understand our exact requirements in terms of experience and skill sets and presented us with three very good candidates a few days later. They subsequently helped us arrange interviews in quick succession and also advised on the final choice of candidate. Since starting, the successful applicant has really hit the ground running and has already started to make a material impact on our operations. Having used Bis Henderson several times in the past, both as a recruiter and candidate, I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for high quality candidates across the Supply Chain and Logistics business functions. Their approach is personable and professional, making the selection and recruitment process as efficient as possible whilst ensuring the business gets the most suitable candidates available. Highly recommended!
We have a long established relationship with Bis Henderson Recruitment which means they had an immediate and comprehensive understanding of what we were looking for when recently recruiting new Supply Chain team roles for us. The consultant we worked with totally ‘got’ our brief and it was obvious they knew the DIY and Trade landscape well too. Candidates proposed were all relevant, offering the right experience, calibre and characteristics. As always the process was smooth and worked just as we think it should; a proper collaboration. I fully recommend Bis Henderson Recruitment and will look forward to working with them in the future.

During my time with Kuehne and Nagel, Leigh and his team did a terrific job of supporting both the business and myself through the provision of consistently high calibre candidates. Not only were the candidates well matched to the specified vacancy in terms of qualification and experience, but they also represented excellent cultural fit for the organization too.
