London, UK -- (SBWire) -- 06/01/2022 --The food manufacturing firm Bakkavor has announced the creation of 1,081 jobs across the UK as part of a nationwide expansion scheme. There are many different roles being created as part of this move, including food production operative, logistics technician and engineering manager.

DSJ Global is well established as a logistics headhunter in the UK, covering most major cities, including London, Manchester and Birmingham. In an industry like logistics and supply chain it's vital for a specialist recruiter to be able to offer genuine global reach, which is something DSJ Global can provide thanks to its international network. The team in the UK is part of a 1,000+ strong worldwide workforce and the firm is also the recruitment partner of choice to hundreds of world-leading companies as part of the Phaidon International group, which operates across 6 countries. Key to the consistently excellent support that the firm provides to both individuals and organisations is the quality of the internal team. DSJ Global invests heavily in its own people. Consultants are trained on an ongoing basis and work with best-in-class recruitment technology and strategies. There are many different roles available via this logistics headhunter today, including Senior Sourcing Specialist, Director of Supply Chain and Director of Transportation.

The team at DSJ Global said, "A pressure cooker year for the Supply Chain sector means 2022 could be unpredictable. One thing is for certain though, and that is the need for talent. Travel restrictions, delays on cargo flights and congested shipping lanes created a multitude of challenges that only the best of the best can solve, and therefore demand for top-tier Supply Chain talent is going nowhere.

The need for talent who have extensive experience in Strategic Procurement, Logistics and Supply Chain is huge. Such demand means companies are having to resort to extreme benefits packages and high compensation to attract the talent they attain for, and therefore having a talent partner to guide them through these difficult times is invaluable.

Travel restrictions, delays on cargo flights and congested shipping lanes may have been 2021's story, but much of last year's challenges are shaping this year. As Supply Chains continue to be under the world's spotlight, the need for top-tier talent is still a pressing issue."
