Supply Chain Recruiters
Are You Looking For a Supply Chain Recruiter?
When you run a supply chain company, every position, task and department revolves around the ultimate end goal of providing the client, customer or user with your product or service in a timely, effective and cost-efficient manner. This means a carefully calculated balance of communication, coordination and cooperation between purchasing, planning, inventory and materials, manufacturing, production, transportation, distribution, customer service and other levels of the company within and outside your facility.
To make sure your supply chain operates smoothly, continues to improve and optimizes its processes for the best distribution times, cost forecasts, profits and customer satisfaction, it’s essential that every department functions optimally and efficiently. That means employing a strong team of experienced, qualified professionals. When you have a vacancy in one of your departments, it’s like missing a cog in the supply chain machine — and your company can feel the strain of the empty position as you try to fill it while also covering the responsibilities it entails.
In today’s market, it can be challenging to find qualified candidates with both the right skills and the proper expertise to fill your essential supply chain positions. Instead of handling the drawn-out process of searching for the right candidate to interview and hire yourself — exerting extra time and energy that would be better spent focusing on your company — your business could benefit substantially from the services, expertise and reliability of a supply chain headhunter.
As the party responsible for understanding your position, actively searching for qualified candidates and filling your vacancy quickly, supply chain recruitment agencies simplify your hiring process and provide you with the best talent.

What We Do
The professionals at our supply chain search firm use action, responsiveness, and knowledge to fill positions in the procurement and supply chain discipline for our clients. The shortage of talent in the supply chain discipline is at a critical stage. The best candidates have many options and can choose between the best opportunities. We work as an extension of your organization, recruiting candidates that have the skills that you want.
We not only have an expansive network of potential supply chain talent for your business, but we also recruit passive candidates. By recruiting both active candidates from our system and passive supply chain candidates, we can help fill your open positions quickly and find a candidate that is a perfect fit for your company.
Dedicated Engagement Recruiting Services
Focused primarily on upper-level positions, our dedicated engagement recruiting services is a retained search hybrid that offers you a personalized experience for finding the candidate perfect for your company. With a dedicated recruiter invested in filling your position, we strive to fully understand and communicate with your company through the recruiting process.
From our discovery phase and white paper development — through which we develop a firm grasp of the exact role and aim of your vacant position — to providing you with weekly reports of qualified candidates, sources and statuses, we collaborate with you every step of the way. Then, we will select, interview and qualify potential candidates for your choosing. Count on your candidates exceeding your expectations and your vacancies being filled expertly and efficiently.
Contingency Recruiting Services
Providing you with the top talent in your discipline and department without asking for an upfront fee, our contingency recruiting services involve working directly with you to start the recruiting process. We will help you develop a position profile and description, create a prospect research strategy, identify and present qualified candidates and assist you in interviewing, assessing references, offering the position and following up after acceptance. We work to understand your company personally and follow through with you until your ideal candidate is placed in the position, which is the only time you’ll pay for our service.
In a discipline that has a shortage of talent, you should work with a recruiting firm that focuses exclusively on your discipline rather than hiring a recruitment company that recruits across a broad band of unrelated disciplines.
