Pod Talent have been instrumental in supporting the Asahi UK recruitment team producing high performing talent for within its Supply Chain function. They have been a strong partner in these projects, always working with integrity and professionalism. I would happily recommend Pod Talent to others.

The Pod team have been fantastic to work with. They took the time to really understand our need whilst immersing themselves in our business. I couldn’t recommend Pod more to any start up looking for value.

Pod supported Emmi UK to recruit 2 people and they have demonstrated a very good knowledge of the supply chain processes. They very quickly and clearly understood our company's culture and all candidates she proposed were a very good fit. It's an absolute pleasure working with Gabi and Pod and I wouldn't hesitate for a second in recommending her and Pod Talent to any employer with staffing needs.

Pod helped me find the perfect planner to join my team, all with great professionalism, genuine enthusiasm and efficiency. In an industry where it is all about the detail, they absolutely nailed it!

​Pod's approach to recruitment is a breath of fresh air. Their passion to understand their clients business, the role profile and the culture means that we're able to quickly move through the recruitment process with a high calibre of candidates.

​Pod Talent partnered with the KP Snacks recruiting team and myself to help us search for and select a candidate for a deeply specialist role. It required hard to find capabilities, role specific experience and the ability to operate with agility on in our industry. Pod talent took this request seriously and delivered candidates who would take this seriously as well. They were an exceptional partner to resource our needs for our expanding department.

​Our requirements are niche and our standards are high, yet I have consistently been sent shortlists which nail my expectations. My feedback has been taken on board and tweaked as our business needs have evolved. I feel I have found a true partner who will conduct a search with as much passion and detail as if conducting it myself.

​The team at Pod have been nothing but excellent, providing considered service to both ourselves and the candidates we have spoken to. We applaud you for the initiative you have taken and look forward to working with you in the future.

The candidate's experience and personality matched exactly what we were looking for. I appreciated the pace in which you were able to work and the quality of candidates shared with us. If we have any other supply chain or ops vacancies I won’t hesitate to get in touch.

​Pod Talent stand out from the crowd. They are passionate about what they do and have truly invested in partnering with us; really getting to understand our business and culture. They have been able to find excellent candidates for challenges roles, finding people who were both a strong technical match and, most importantly, a great culture fit. Pod Talent are a brilliant partner to any business and I would highly recommend them to anyone.

​I have worked with Pod on logistics vacancies in several UK & European locations and have been very satisfied with the service provided. The shortlists provided by Pod are always of a very high quality. All the positions were filled quickly and with the right candidates. I appreciate Pod's very open collaboration, very good understanding of the client’s needs, solid source of candidates both from local and international markets and high quality pre-screening. I look forward to working with Pod again.

I’ve worked with Pod Talent multiple times over the years. Communication was great from the start, they really took the time to understand what we were looking for and they quickly developed a clear process where I had visibility on how they were getting on. I would definitely recommend Pod Talent, and I look forward to working with them again in future.

Pod were great to work with, they understood the role well and sent across some great candidates. They were always available on the phone when we needed to discuss things. I am looking forward to working with them again!

I had the great pleasure of working with Pod on several assignments in Europe and North America. They showed great professional spirit, thorough understanding of customer needs, and great follow up. I am impressed by their timelines and commitments as well as the great understanding of their field of specialisation. For sure we will together again in the future.

I met Pod whilst searching for my next job opportunity. After our first meeting, they were very quick to come back to me with a potential role. They supported me all the way by providing valuable insights into the company and the role. They dedicated time to connect with me at every step of the recruitment process and I ended up getting a global role for a great organisation in Switzerland. They are passionate about doing their best and very dedicated and I am very grateful for all of their help, I highly recommend them.

Throughout the project the feedback was insightful and honest – they delivered high quality candidates, were flexible when needed and worked with us in a true partnership, and all within pre-set timescales. We have built a team of exceptional procurement professionals because of their belief in KraftHeinz and industry-leading recruitment techniques. Overall the project has been a fantastic success and we would not hesitate to use Pod again!

Pod Talent are a brilliant example of what great agency partnership should look like and they are one of Danone's strongest agency partners. They are passionate about what they do and always get to the bottom of stakeholder’s need to secure the best fit candidates for us. They are in all essence, a true business partner and are not afraid to challenge our way of thinking to find the best solution that fits our needs.

case studies


Coty were centralising their colour cosmetics manufacturing into their site in Ashford and as a result had over 100 vacancies. The talent team had filled most of them but had 35 remaining roles and felt the local talent market was exhausted.​ The talent team were also struggling with capacity to manage the volume of recruitment as well as the number of new starters needing to be onboarded.


Pod were engaged to fill the remaining 35 roles within a 2 month period, from operatives to engineers to planners. One of our team operated as a Coty implant, taking all admin work away from the team from organising assessment processes to sending out contracts. We organised new marketing and advertising campaigns and did a headhunt strategy for each role to unlock new talent.


The talent team had found more time to focus on onboarding and L&D so could prioritise important tasks rather than recruitment admin. All roles were filled within a 2-month period and the factory was back on track, hitting its output and customer services targets.


Kraft Heinz had 15 procurement roles to fill in the Netherlands. The TA team had no functional experience recruiting for procurement roles which meant the quality of candidates had been poor, and they had no rigorous interview process for roles. Lastly, Kraft Heinz had recently been acquired by 3G and had a bad reputation in the market and candidates didn’t want to join.


Pod did an employer brand survey of relevant candidates in the Netherlands and found out more about KH’s brand perception. We then created employer branding based on their unique selling points, knowing this would attract the right type of candidate. We sent an implant to work in their office, who also ran interview training with the whole senior procurement team and co-ordinated all recruitment activities, as well as managed all the sourcing of candidates.


13 out of 15 roles were filled within 3 months, and all were filled within 5. The candidate information pack received great feedback and candidates interviewing were both a good cultural fit and interested in the business. The interview process and training we delivered was implemented as a permanent solution in the procurement team.


Asahi were completing a major restructure to their UK Supply Chain division coupled with relocating their Supply Chain team back to their HQ in Woking, Surrey, which resulted in a high number of newly created vacancies to fill. The talent team didn’t have the capacity to fill the vacancies themselves and needed support both with recruitment and the coordination needed to deliver the project successfully.


We sourced candidates by managing and optimising job adverts, managing direct applications, sourcing through job boards and our own network, and a wide headhunt process Managed the candidate experience by ensuring all candidates from application stage received a reply and that candidates received prompt feedback throughout the end to end process. Created candidate marketing information used to attract candidates to apply to Asahi, to give candidates more information on the business and vacancies, and to support them in their interview preparation.


Pod filled 15 of the 25 roles, whilst supporting Asahi with internal moves for the other 10 roles, in just 3 months We supported Asahi with their DE&I goals within the project; for example, 55% of the candidates we placed within this project were female. We received excellent feedback from Asahi stakeholders, a highlight being that we operated as a true partner throughout the whole process.
