Purchasing, Supply Chain and Logistics Recruitment
Skills in Purchasing and Supply Chain are highly sought after, and the benefits of well-established departments should not be overlooked. Investment in these types of roles should comfortably be offset with the operational savings these departments make, through better negotiated terms with suppliers, efficient transport management, supplier quality, reduced stock, improved stock availability and just in time deliveries etc.
The team at Cartisian Technical Recruitment have many years’ experience placing candidates at all levels across purchasing and supply chain including Supply Chain Managers, Purchasing Managers, Logistics Managers, and their supporting teams.
Whether you are looking for permanent or contract candidates, we are able to identify high calibre individuals quickly and accurately matched to your brief. Having placed candidates within Automotive, Aerospace, General Engineering, we understand the key attributes required and where transferable skills may be appropriate. We offer a consultative approach to the recruitment process, carefully describing the position and the environment where the candidate would be working and presenting detailed reasons for the candidate’s application to the client. This ensures that applications are made with the confidence the candidate’s skills are well suited to the position.
Supply chain covers so many positions and crosses over into IT more than people realise. To manage highly complex supply chain, logistics and purchasing functions, strong IT integration is critical and with the ascension towards industry 4.0, the focus to streamline the entire end to end process has never been more aspirational.
Strong experience with ERP and MRP software, linked to manufacturing execution systems allows for seamless integration, but to get there requires huge investment in technology and people. High volume retailers and consumer goods manufacturers are investing heavily in this technology with integrated solutions from e-commerce online ordering, through to automated robotic picking stations and automated packaging and vehicle loading. The result of this advance in supply chain technology means that as consumers, time from online order to delivery can be achieved in as little as 12 hours.
