The changing face of the logistics sector has seen many companies making significant investment in logistics management systems. Bis Henderson are increasingly asked for help in securing fresh talent through focused logistics recruitment campaigns, in order to ensure experienced staff are in place to develop and operate these new systems.
The economic climate
The economic climate in the UK is strengthening, with logistics contributing greatly to the overall growth. This calls for the maintaining of cost efficiencies, improved stock analysis, reporting and better market intelligence. The BiS Henderson specialist recruitment team appreciate that systems knowledge is very specific and is highly sought after by employers. As existing employees retire or take up appointments elsewhere, it is prudent not to miss the opportunity to replace them with recruits who will bring a new approach and pragmatic solutions to the logistics operation, giving an innovative and competitive edge.
Multi-skilled roles are now common place, requiring close collaboration and flexibility within the team.
Although IT and analytical aptitude is of high priority, the ability to deal with customer facing issues, contract relationship management and compliance awareness is also paramount. Today’s global network requires a talent pool of experienced logistics managers and assistant workers who are easily able to adapt to a rapidly evolving environment. Consumer demands are also shifting and operational systems must be in place and managed efficiently to meet the challenge of excellent customer service and on-time delivery.
Filling the gap in eCommerce recruitment
With e-commerce being relatively recent in the logistics sector, Bis Henderson recruiters are often brought on board by clients to help resolve skill-gaps within the existing workforce. Ideal candidates will be registered on the extensive database, giving instant access to the best talent with all the appropriate qualifications and experience level. This ensures that there are no costly delays in the hiring process and the employer is able to avoid the obstacle of a hard-to-fill vacancy that may be faced by HR or the hiring manager if recruiting without external advice and support.
Finding the perfect candidate for the logistics job is key to establishing a competitive advantage, market growth and stronger customer partnerships for the future.
