Call the experts in Procurement and Supply Chain !

Recruiting for a management position represents a major challenge for any company, whether it is a small to medium-sized enterprise or a large group. According to a study carried out by HR Voice, the wrong recruitment for a manager profile represents a loss of between €45,000 and €100,000 for the company.

Generally speaking, if you want to find the right person for this type of position, just publishing an advert is not enough to help you find the best. That’s why our headhunters are trained to target the “top candidates” for the position using advanced tools.

The identified profiles are placed in a role play situation with face-to-face interviews, using an evaluation method to identify soft skills (leadership, commitment, ability to challenge internal processes, etc.). This method has just one objective – to safeguard your recruitment process!

In an increasingly stretched market for executives, recruiting a good buyer has become a complex task. Too many recruitments happen by default, leading to bad choices due to a lack of good candidates and the right tools to attract the best candidates within a reasonable amount of time.

Over the past few years, however, the Procurement role has become more than just strategic for companies. The new generation of buyer is no longer a simple executive or cost killer. The role now goes beyond the exemplary use of new tools allowing better procurement. The buyer has now become an intrapreneur and a strategic partner for the management team, suppliers, internal and external customers.

In this context, our teams use sourcing and evaluation methods, which allow them to go beyond a simple job description, with the objective of putting forward profiles with development potential that share your corporate values.

The Supply Chain sector has undergone an unprecedented upheaval over the past few years. Digitalisation, low-cost production in emerging markets, the densification of flows and new social and environmental concerns have profoundly changed executive roles in Logistics and Supply Chain.

Our team of consultants will do their utmost to attract and evaluate profiles that are sensitive to these profound changes. Whether we are recruiting an Operations Manager, a Project Manager or an Analyst, we adopt the right recruitment method for the relevant job role.
