Purchasing, Supply Chain and Logistics Recruitment

Skilled professionals within purchasing and supply chain are always very highly sought-after, since a strong department can make a significant difference to any organisation. Operational savings mean that roles within this sector are often easy to justify, in terms of recruitment investment. Savings come from improved sourcing and better trading terms with suppliers, reduced inventory holdings, better stock availability and effective transportation of goods and materials. The move to just-in-time deliveries, in both the manufacturing and retail worlds, means that the purchasing, supply chain and logistics sector has to work harder and smarter than ever before.

At Cartisian, we have years of experience of recruiting for supply chain, purchasing and logistics roles and we understand how this sector works and what the challenges are that it faces. From management roles to supporting teams, we can deliver the very best candidates to organisations of all sizes, from the smallest of SMEs to the largest of multinational corporate clients.

As roles within purchasing, supply chain and logistics are required across a huge range of industries, such as aviation, automotive, construction and general engineering, it’s vital that recruitment is tailored to the individual client, to ensure that all candidates fielded have relevant skills and experience, as well as the willingness and commitment to work within a specific sector. We take time to understand our clients’ requirements, and to listen to our candidates, in order to ensure that we find the perfect match, each and every time we field a candidate.

This sector is now much more developed than many people realise, with a strong crossover into IT. Supply chain, purchasing and logistics systems are highly complex, with multi-platform integrations and mission-critical functionality taking centre stage. Factor in the challenges of Industry 4.0, with more and more automation throughout manufacturing and industry, and it’s obvious that this is a sector that is on course for major growth in the coming years.

It’s not just in the manufacturing and general engineering industries where investment in supply chain and logistics is strong – high volume retailers and consumer products manufacturers are also investing heavily in this area, both in terms of systems and people. From e-commerce platforms offering personalisation and machine learning to robotic picking systems and automated packing and freight loading, the race is very definitely on for the fastest times from online order to delivery.
