5 benefits of using a Supply Chain recruiter as a candidate

Why Work With a Supply Chain Recruiter?

Applying for roles and using a recruiter can provide you with numerous benefits and advantages:

In-depth understanding of the Supply Chain sector

It is invaluable to work with a recruiter that specialises in the industry you are in (e.g. Supply Chain) as the recruiter will then have an in-depth understanding of the industry, available roles, salary and benefit benchmarking and more. All of the benefits mentioned in the blog will be magnified when you are working with a recruiter who is experienced and understands the roles and industry they are recruiting.

  • They know what to ask a hiring manager to understand the roles and collect valuable information 

  • They are able to more accurately provide advice about roles including your fit with the organisation and skills required to succeed in the role

  • They know who the good companies are to work for (and those who may not be) 

Access to wider range job opportunities

Many roles don’t make it to being advertised on job search websites before being filled. Recruiters have insider knowledge on roles available now and in the immediate future, and have strong relationships with HR teams and hiring managers. Meaning they can directly put you forth for job opportunities you wouldn’t have otherwise found out about. 

Expert guidance through the recruitment process

We are here to guide you and be in your corner through the recruitment process. We can help you stand out to hiring managers by support with updating your resume and highlighting your skills and qualifications, preparing for interviews, and making a great first impression. 

Provide invaluable career advice

As a Supply Chain specialist recruiter we have in-depth knowledge of the current supply chain jobs market to help you find your dream role (read more about the 2023 current supply chain job market here). We can provide you with valuable insight into the job market such as salary benchmarks, role expectations, industry trends and hiring processes. We also know what employers are looking for, and can help you position your skills and experience in interviews. We can also help you negotiate salary and benefits.

Find your dream role

As recruiters, we have more detailed information about the role including responsibilities and expectations in the role, what skills and strengths will support you to succeed in the role, what challenges might present in the role, who was previously in the role, what your reporting manager/s are like to work with, what the team and company culture is like, and more. We also take the time to get to know you on a deeper level including your career goals, your strengths and areas for development, and your work styles to identify positions that will be the best fit for you.

You stay in our database

Even if you aren’t hired for the first role you apply for, we keep you in our database for future roles. Because we know your career goals, what you’re looking for, and what roles you’d be best suited to, it helps speed up the process so you’re not spending hours looking for and applying for roles all the time. We have been able to place candidates that we first met with 2 years prior who were not looking at the time. Or equally we have been able to help candidates immediately who really needed support in leaving a less than ideal role/workplace culture.
