Placement

Every company needs skilled employees. Supply chain teams require a mix of technical and people-oriented resources, for either the short or long-term. We equip our clients with the right resource for the right length of time.

 

Our Clients' Needs

Our clients have a variety of resourcing needs. Some require change agents, some steady-state leaders. All have a requirement for us to place resource that fits within their culture, values and behaviours, and be capable of delivery from the outset.

As well-connected supply chain experts, we have a large portfolio of supply chain candidates at our disposal, to be placed in interim and project roles. For permanent recruitment, we recruit to a specific brief from the client.

Our clients expect us to fit the right candidate, with the right cultural and competency fit, to the right position, for the right length of time.

Permanent

Placing candidates in permanent positions is a skilled professional task. It is important that each recruit has the right skills and competencies you require, but equally that their values and behaviours are aligned to your company.

 

For this reason, we follow a 360 recruitment process when fulfilling all permanent positions.

 

This includes the following services:​

  • Company and operational brief writing

  • Job description writing

  • Sourcing

  • Screening

  • Interviews

  • Assessment

  • Candidate management

  • Negotiation

  • Placement

Interim

By their very nature, interim positions are filled for a specific and often short period of time - generally 3-12 months.

 

Speed is often of the essence. Slater Austin has a large contact portfolio of existing consultants and candidates seeking interim positions from which to satisfy your resource requirements.

 

The resource pool includes change agents, used to running often complex change projects within organisations, as well as steady state experts, ideal for maternity or sabbatical replacement.

Project

Our portfolio of project managers all have supply chain industry backgrounds and detailed project management experience, so they are ready to add value to your organisation from day 1.

 

They are available on a day hire right through to full-time projects on a contract length to meet your requirements.

 

Some of our project managers also have programme office management backgrounds, making them ideal to coordinate, manage and track a complex series of projects simultaneously.

How we operate

We understand our clients in depth and place equal emphasis on both the client and candidate service need. Truly understanding the candidate motivation for seeking a placement is just as important as understanding the client motivation.

Many of our candidates will also have worked in Slater Austin’s consultancy division, so we have a first-hand understanding of how they thrive in the workplace. We are engaged by our clients on an assignment basis and are rewarded according to successful placement. The assignment may be to seek fulfilment of a selection of roles on a continuous basis, or for a specific one-off requirement.

As with our Consultancy activity, we do not charge to get to know our customers. The journey you experience with us starts with us understanding your business, your supply chain requirements, your culture.

We have a series of free introductory workshops, which help you help us source the right candidates.
