There is a unique approach required when recruiting for logistics jobs in the Public Sector, whether that’s for support roles or executive positions. Logistics recruitment for Government and the Public sector primarily calls for rigorous security checks, with candidates thoroughly screened and credentials verified.
Recruitment consultants, Bis Henderson has a specialist team dedicated to sourcing, referencing and placing the best candidates for vacant logistics roles within the Public sector. Screening is tailored specifically to identifying those with the essential qualities and the right mindset to excel in local and central Government or not-for-profit companies culture and environment.
It is important to engage a logistics & supply chain recruitment consultancy that is knowledge-based with hands on experience, ensuring that only key talent is engaged. Bis Henderson has recruitment solutions for the acquisition of prime candidates, with an appreciation of the complexities involved in hiring staff for the Public sector.
There is undoubtedly a considerable difference between supply chain and purchasing recruitment in the Public and private categories. The culture and structure is not the same, although as many previously private companies are now at least partly publicly owned, logistics staff with experience in the private sector can be invaluable and have a great deal to contribute.
Senior leaders from the private sector are likely to bring with them highly developed communication skills and the ability to build strong working relationships within the team. They will be focused on achieving results and not be averse to taking calculated risks when making decisions.
A candidate with experience solely within the Public sector on the other hand will adhere to rules and regulations with strategically based and cautious decision making. It’s therefore essential for HR managers to thoroughly analyse precisely what type of team member is required in order to ensure smooth running of the current operation and success in future developments. What business attributes and leadership styles are needed to fulfil the role in order to be compatible with the existing culture, structure and values of the organisation?
Bis Henderson will communicate with you throughout the recruitment process to assist in your search and analysis of the essential attributes the role demands.
