1st Executive successfully tendered for Preferred Supplier status and have partnered the business across all Supply Chain and Logistics recruitment for over 4 years.  

More recently the organisation has been through a period of substantial change and expansion within their Supply Chain and Logistics functions, including consolidation of “in-country” business units towards a consolidated regional and global model, ERP systems alignment and upgrade resulting in major headcount expansion.


Due to the breadth and volume of vacancies, combined with the technical requirements and the calibre of candidates required, 1st Executive’s approach combined a wide-ranging high volume eAdvertising campaign (including UK and EU generalist and Supply Chain specific sites),  Database and network search via access to all major UK and European CV databases prevalent for Supply Chain and Logistics candidates. In addition we undertook pro-active headhunting from a target list of organisations combined with a major Linked campaign ensuring full market coverage via social networking avenues.

Utilising this broad pool of candidates 1st Executive compiled a long-list of potentially suitable contenders before commencing a formal interview process.  Candidates were assessed by 1st Executive against agreed core competencies in order to create a defined shortlist for client submission against each requirement.


Since becoming a recruitment partner to the organisation, 1st Executive have subsequently delivered a diverse range of roles appointments, from Planners (Production, Demand, Logistics / Distribution), through Analysts, Supply Chain Account Managers and Customer Service, Supply Chain Managers, Logistics Managers, NPI / NPD Managers and Systems / Reporting specialists.
