Hutchinsons: Transport Development Manager

Background

Hutchinsons is a private, family owned, successful business providing agronomy services to the UK agriculture sector. The business has grown significantly in recent years to a turnover of c£230m; serving its customer base through a UK wide depot network.

Project

This growth, and the forthcoming retirement of a number of key logistics personnel, presented a challenge and an opportunity to ensure continued effective operations and to further develop the logistics leadership team for the increasing operational scale and complexity.

Davies & Robson and Hutchinsons jointly developed a specification for someone with the potential to grow with the business. This included the short term management requirements, future leadership needs, technical knowledge and the ability to support the Head of Logistics with analysis and project management work.

With customers of long standing, an appreciation of the customer care levels required is also imperative to succeed in this business.

Results

Focussing our search on graduate calibre transport managers with project management experience, there was also a need to identify an individual with a strong appreciation that the business thrives on high service levels as much as cost; with the ability to recognise this in the daily operations and future solutions development.

Following a dedicated and active programme of sourcing, filtering and interviews, Hutchinsons appointed a graduate transport specialist with project management experience that also satisfied the key customer orientated culture fit of the business.

We were highly satisfied with the consultative and thorough approach taken by Davies & Robson to recruit this key position in our business.
