The Launch Pod

Connecting junior to mid-level specialists to supply chain opportunities, solving talent shortages on the way

The Launch Pod is our newest offering and provides our clients a new and inventive way to attract high calibre specialists into junior to mid-level roles.

Through our experience placing supply chain experts at all levels, we noticed that:

  • Clients expect shortlists for junior level roles much faster
  • The candidate pools and skill sets required for roles at this level often overlap across multiple specialisms
  • Combining experience and talent pools across our team means that we can service our clients needs much more effectively at this level

As a business that is solely set up to provide supply chain recruitment solutions, we saw it as our job to provide a solution to this problem too! And so, the Launch Pod was born.

So, what is it?!

  • The Launch Pod team is made up of a bunch of experienced recruiters who all work on every role together
  • We share candidates and build up a talent pool of exceptional talent looking for their first or second role in supply chain
  • Multiple people working on one role means that we can shortlist candidates much faster, reducing the time to hire each role, which our clients love
  • We match raw talent to the right elements of supply chain (planning, logistics, etc)
  • Roles we specialise in include - supply chain and logistics coordinators, procurement specialists, customer service executives, analysts, and demand and supply planners
What does this mean? It means you'll receive the same quality candidates, in a much shorter time!

what our customers say

Working with the GradPod was an amazing experience and I’m over the moon that I managed to secure this Supply Chain role. I can’t express my gratitude enough for the support I received during this process as it is what made the difference between having a good set of skills and actually being offered the role I wanted. The support put me at ease and made me more aware of how to explain the skills I do have to my new employer, and now I have the exact job I have been looking for!

As a founder of a freight technology business I wanted to support the Grad Pod as soon as I heard about it. It's a fantastic idea, with companies like Chill-Chain bringing fresh ways of working to the logistics industry what is required is the support of superb talent and imagination. The Grad Pod did this in spades, bringing people with great intelligence and great drive to an industry in need of them. 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.

Working with GradPod has been absolutely amazing. Everyone I came across during my experience has been professional and supportive. GradPod helped me to secure my first graduate job in an amazing company and I would recommend it to anyone.
