Are you considering a career in the rapidly growing UK logistics sector? No longer limited to driving trucks and handling goods in warehouses, along with the developing complexity of the supply chain, skill sets have also become more complex and offers diverse opportunities in logistics jobs. The first step is to register with a specialist logistics recruitment consultancy such as BiS Henderson. Experienced recruiters will be able to explain all avenues within the industry that are open to you and will match your qualifications, experience and aptitude.
At present, fresh talent is much sought after by employers looking for an injection of skills that will support the new technology and sharing of global data that is frequently an essential part of logistics and supply chain operations. Attractive logistics employment packages are now being offered with long term benefits aiming to secure and retain the best staff ahead of competitors.
You should ensure that you have prepared thoroughly before the interview, with in-depth research into the background and ethos of the hiring company. Many employers are now asking for candidate profiling during the interview process. This will involve an evaluation of not only skills and experience, but also personality, how well you communicate and your work style. You might be asked how you spend your free time, whether you take part in team activities or are you more reclusive. Also be aware that it’s common for employers to check social media profiles to see if how you spend your time off is likely to adversely affect your responsibilities at work.
Your C.V. must be accurate and honest. An experienced interviewer will easily spot inconsistencies and flag up any unexplained gaps in your career history. Avoid criticism of a former (or current) employer even if you believe it to be justified, as the recruiting company will be wary of how you may speak of them in the future. Don’t be afraid to be open about any weaknesses you may have as it shows self-awareness. If you only sell your strengths, you may come over as being too good to be true and the interviewer will suspect you have hidden flaws.
Bis Henderson will help registered candidates to prepare fully and present well for short-listing and the final interview, ensuring you make not just a good first impression, but also a lasting one.
