Finding an exceptional leader for a business with an exact set of skills and/or level of expertise can often be compared to finding a needle in a haystack – regularly people with these specific skills can be few and far between, as well as in high demand! Not to mention, the cultural fit of a leader within your business often needs to be even more perfect than at a junior level.
This is where we might suggest our executive search solution. We would commit a high level of resource at Pod in return for a fee upfront from our client to retain our services. As a result, we will dedicate our experienced consultants specifically to the project until it is complete, to guarantee the best outcome to the highest standard. Where needed, we also use central resourcing capacity to ensure a detailed market map is created and covered.
Prior to undertaking the search, we like to meet all of the relevant stakeholders at your business to fully understand your exact needs, and get to know your organisation and its supply chain as best we can. We can often assist in shaping the requirements of the role too – we have over 50 years of supply chain recruitment experience within the business to draw from, and we often get our heads together to make sure we are utilising everyone’s expertise on difficult searches, so no stone is left unturned.
We use our knowledge of your business plus the information you’ve given us to create bespoke marketing material specific to the role which will help sell the role to candidates alongside the job description. These documents sell your organisation in the best possible light and make sure the candidates have a full grasp on the company, the nuances and specifics of the role, and even the future progression available. Specialising only in supply chain means that our networks comprise solely of supply chain experts with specific skill sets; we would of course utilise these alongside ‘classic’ searching methods such as market mapping and headhunting to target specific candidates.
We have an exemplary record of placing retained assignments and have placed supply chain leaders into roles who have truly revolutionised businesses. If you’d like to draw on our experience and help us to transform your supply chain too, then please don’t hesitate to contact us for more information.
