The logistics sector has progressed considerably over recent years and now calls for professionals with diverse skills and experience who will play an important role in the company’s future growth. So how does an employer source the ideal employee to fill logistics jobs?
BiS Henderson’s tips on hiring the right logistics recruitment company, places ‘hands on experience’ within the industry as top priority. This specialist knowledge within the recruiting team enables sound judgement of a candidate’s suitability for the role and ensures an in-depth appreciation of the required skills and attitude required.
The logistics recruitment consultancy should focus exclusively on hiring for the logistics, procurement and supply chain sectors and maintain an extensive database of high calibre candidates who are actively seeking a career move. With the extending global logistics market, this database should ideally stretch far wider than the UK, increasing the talent pool and the opportunity for the employer to secure the best available candidates.
Bis Henderson know how vital it is to monitor candidates’ details on a regular basis to ensure additional qualifications and work experience are updated and relevant. A further key issue is for the recruiter to demonstrate how they will maintain close communication with the client throughout the hiring process. Before selecting applicants for interview the logistics recruitment consultants must define the job specification with the employer and establish the appropriate questions for the pre-screening process.
It’s essential that in the current candidate-driven status for logistics jobs, that however urgent the need to recruit new staff may be, no steps are skipped in the search and interview process.
Bis Henderson will always advise that hiring in haste is likely to be a very costly mistake. With the right logistics recruitment consultancy in place and fully briefed, CVs can be carefully vetted with candidates screened and short-listed, giving an assurance that the right person will be on-board to fill the vacant position to the optimum time-scale.
