A.F. Blakemore is the largest division of SPAR UK, owning 267 SPAR stores and serving more than 900 in total across England and Wales.
The company’s portfolio of brands also includes Philpotts, a chain of prepared-food stores, Vegan Store, and a specialist online wholesaler and retailer.
Having seen an uplift in volume and slower turnaround, A.F. Blakemore required short term cover for management of the company’s largest distribution centre during the busy peak period.
THE SOLUTION & OUTCOME:
We worked closely with the Supply Chain Director to quickly understand the client’s requirements, and found a very experienced Logistics Director level individual, they understood the immediate issues and started to be effective from day one.
A word from our client...
“I contacted Bis Henderson Recruitment as we required a number of interim assignments after experiencing a significant increase in growth.
They always respond to these requests positively and are able to identify suitable candidates within a very short time-frame.
They clearly understand the logistics and supply chain marketplace, but most importantly, they are able to identify good-fit candidates from a cultural perspective. They are able to do this from a verbal brief, which accelerates the process.
Having used Bis Henderson for a number of years, as a recruiter, their approach is personable and professional, making the selection and recruitment process as efficient as possible whilst ensuring the business gets the most suitable candidates available. I would always highly recommend them as the go-to organisation for any interim supply chain and logistics management functions.”
