Major UK Heritage Retailer

"We were asked to bring in 32 people for induction on Monday and we essentially threw caution to the wind. And as it now stands we are sending in 89 quality candidates on Monday. Genuinely, we (the on-site account team) are really grateful for the marketing support as it has undoubtedly made this possible."

Our client, one of the UK’s largest retailers, relies heavily on a sharp increase in ‘blue collar’ temporary worker numbers to ensure the secure and timely delivery of millions of customer orders over the Christmas period. 

During 2016’s peak period from August through to December we were responsible for recruiting more than 500 additional temporary workers across eight key distribution centres, many within highly-saturated local markets. The roles required included warehouse operatives, 7.5T drivers and fork-lift truck drivers.
