Manchester Logistics recruitment agency listing

Concerned with the planning, implementation and management of supply chains, the logistics industry is worth nearly £100 billion to the UK economy. The most common areas of work in the sector tend to be warehouse, distribution and operations based and staff for these professions are supplied by a large number of recruitment agencies. The majority of these agencies will fill permanent, contract and temporary positions ensuring that clients get the candidates which best suit their needs.

There are currently around 2 million people working within the logistics sector and this is expected to grow by several hundred thousand by the end of the decade. Average salaries tend to be around £32K but obviously can range depending on experience and job role. Directors in supply chain management can earn in excess of £70K while roles such as warehouse supervisors and logistics coordinators earn a more modest salary of between £20K-£30K.

With more motorways than any other city, it's own airport and shipping canal, Manchester is a big player in the logistics industry. Major companies like Kellogg's, Adidas and Procter and Gamble have all based their distribution activities in the city, while the rest of the country can be reached within a four hour drive.

Most of the logistics workforce are without a degree or higher education qualification so entering the field isn't academically intensive. Gaining a degree would improve your prospects though and business management, transport and information systems are all considered relevant areas of study. Those with work experience are in high demand and approaching SME's may help candidates enter the industry in the long term. Other desirable traits in include being able to plan, teamwork and the ability to work to tight deadlines.
