Crewerecruiter doubles up on logistics deal

A Crewe company has secured an agreement to act as sole temporary labour recruiter for a second site for one of the UK’s largest logistics companies.

Absolute Recruitment already looks after Boughey Distribution’s site in Wardle, Cheshire and has now secured the contract to be its sole recruiter for its other site at Deeside near Chester.

The agreement covers all warehousing staff requirements and the team at Absolute will be sourcing up to 120 temporary placements each week for both sites. The agreement doesn’t cover HGV drivers and admin employees as this is part of a separate specialist contract.

The company, which specialises in ambient grocery distribution and warehousing storage, has a constant demand for temporary workers to meet the ever-changing requirements of its retail customers such as leading supermarket chains.

Absolute already has an on-site office at Boughey Distribution’s Wardle headquarters to co-ordinate the daily resource levels required to ensure ambient fresh food is stored, picked and distributed on time.

The company’s Depot Operations Director Bernard Murphy said Absolute’s professional approach in continually sourcing reliable and capable people has been key to Absolute achieving sole supplier status at its Deeside site as well.

“Ambient grocery distribution is a very challenging industry as we have to be very responsive to the requirements of retailers, which can change minute by minute,” said Bernard.

“Boughey Distribution needs a partner that understands our business and can integrate with us seamlessly to ensure we always have the right level of resource to meet demand.

“We trust Absolute to be our recruitment partner of choice because they have proven themselves time and time again in providing the right level of resource exactly when we need it.”

Absolute Recruitment has worked with Boughey Distribution for a number of years and worked hard to develop a close working relationship to the point of being awarded sole recruitment partner status for both our UK sites.

Managing Director of Absolute Jessica Marshall puts the company’s success down to having a robust recruitment process.

“We are only as good as the candidates that we put forward to Boughey Distribution - which is why we have gone to the lengths we have in setting up an on-site office and handpicking candidates,” said Jessica.

“Boughey is one of the largest logistics companies in the UK and it is a great accolade for our company that we are their recruitment partner of choice for both its sites.”
