The problem

Recruiting the right talent in a timely manner can be a daunting task for any company. The logistics industry has found recruitment especially challenging in the post-Brexit landscape, driven by rising costs and a reduction in the size of the available workforce.

A leading logistics company needed to recruit a large number of staff across multiple locations in the UK.

Aside from finding it difficult to find the volume of candidates they needed, they were struggling with many manual processes. It was especially difficult to track applications and manage candidate data efficiently. Then they would find the candidates they chose to progress often didn’t have the appropriate right to work in the UK and they would have to go back to the start of the process.

The company found their recruitment process was taking too long and their hiring costs had increased. They knew that they needed a solution which could automate their recruitment process and reduce their costs.

They turned to redwigwam for help.
