One of the primary costs within the supply chain operation is the employment of labour. Without doubt, errors of judgement when hiring supply chain staff can be damaging, but with significant expansion of volume and growing complexity within the supply chain, the industry sector is now experiencing a considerable talent gap.
Supply chain recruitment specialists Bis Henderson, recognise that companies are finding it increasingly difficult to source future employees with the right qualifications, match them to specific skills and to retain them in the long term against stiff competition. Current trends show that there are more available supply chain jobs than there are qualified staff available to fulfil them. There is a growing need to fill data-flow and technology management roles and crucial gaps within the senior and middle-management roles.
The Bis Henderson recruitment team not only have many years of direct experience within the supply chain sector and fully appreciate what skill-sets are required, but also know exactly where to find the best candidates who are actively looking for a career change or are undergraduates ready to take the first step in their career. The supply chain recruitment consultant will liaise closely with the client throughout the hiring process to ensure a strategic workforce management plan is in place and achieved.
Undergraduates who submit their C.Vs to Bis Henderson will be made aware of the opportunities that are available to them within the supply chain profession. Many are unaware for example that their technical qualifications or language skills could potentially open doors for them in all corners of the world, where they would have the chance to be involved in working within rapidly evolving fields of design and technology.
Bis Henderson consultants constantly have a finger on the industry pulse and are ready to approach the top candidates on brief, securing them ahead of the competition. This ensures that the client’s hiring costs are minimised, the supply chain will suffer no disruption due to a gap in the workforce and the new team member will prove to be a long term asset to the company.
