Logistics Recruitment

Our Logistics division has been a key to the success of Search Consultancy since our inception in 1987. We are one of the most trusted logistics recruitment agencies in the UK with offices thanks to our willingness to listen to our client’s feedback about they prefer about our logistics agencies’ services.

We understand that logistics is an industry that is on the increase but also one which faces numerous challenges including an aging workforce. As the UK’s leading logistics recruitment agency, we can help your organisation address these issues thanks to our vast database of logistics candidates and the expert knowledge of our specialist consultants.

Search’s Logistics specialism was initially established to meet the needs for skilled and experienced candidates in the electronics boom in the late 1980s. We quickly expanded our capability and service delivery across all industry disciplines and sectors and we now supply recruitment services to organisations across all sectors and sizes from small privately owned companies to global multi-site organisations. Our impressive geographical reach means that we can source and place candidates across our 13 separate office locations and beyond.

Many logistics hiring managers in the past have been familiar with the challenges of recruiting experienced staff and heavy goods drivers in particular to the sector. As consumer demand in the UK increases with a growing population, there is even more of a need to ensure products are constantly available on the shelf and being delivered through the supply chain.

We have teams of experienced and dedicated specialist consultants who are recognised for high quality and outstanding success from both a client and candidate perspective.

We have experience recruiting in many areas of the industry including design and development across UK locations including Sheffield, Leeds and Dundee.

At Search, our leading logistics recruitment agency consultants meet all of our candidates face to face for a full interview and complete the following checks prior to starting work. We can arrange testing at any of our UK offices and offer the following services.

  • Reference checks
  • Licence checks (completed at regular intervals)
  • Medical declaration
  • Driving declaration
  • Proof of eligibility to work and identity
  • Written assessment (general knowledge & driving rules)
